Unfortunately, there are two entries on the same topic, both created by Urs: quantum Hall effect (redirecting also fractional quantum Hall effect what should eventually split off) with some substance, and the microstub quantum hall effect. I would like to create quantum spin Hall effect and I think I should rename/reclaim the stub quantum hall effect for this. Do others agree ? Urs ?

As the action is now delayed I record here the reference which I wanted to put there

Somewhat surprisingly, the authors and roughly this work of them are mentioned (though not in the list of references) in a paper in algebraic geometry

which considers the mirror symmetry and topological states of matters (topological insulators in particular) as main applications.

Thanks for fixing this! Didn’t notice.

The theoretically proper thing to do is to move (change page name) quantum hall effect to quantum hall effect > history (while replacing its content with &lt; [[quantum hall effect]] and of course putting [[!redirects quantum hall effect]] at quantum Hall effect).

After saying all that, I decided to just do it. So I did it.

However, since there is no actual additional content, nor even any edit history of such, it actually doesn't matter if you do as you propose instead. In particular, if you'd like to have Urs's ministub in the history of your page, then go to quantum hall effect > history (or even revision 1) and rename and edit it. I won't be upset (^_^).
