@article{Read2000PairedSO, title={Paired states of fermions in two dimensions with breaking of parity and time-reversal symmetries and the fractional quantum Hall effect}, author={Nicholas Read and Dmitry Green}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2000}, volume={61}, pages={10267-10297} }

We analyze pairing of fermions in two dimensions for fully gapped cases with broken parity (P) and time reversal (T), especially cases in which the gap function is an orbital angular momentum (l) eigenstate, in particular $l=\ensuremath{-}1$ (p wave, spinless, or spin triplet) and $l=\ensuremath{-}2$ (d wave, spin singlet). For $l\ensuremath{\ne}0,$ these fall into two phases, weak and strong pairing, which may be distinguished topologically. In the cases with conserved spin, we derive… Expand
