Elementary derivation of one-dimensional fermion-number fractionalization

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An elementary explanation of the origin of topological or fractional charges in one dimension is presented. Attention is paid to where the balance of the charge is located and the influence of the choice of boundary conditions on the problem.
