abstract

  • Using the Thomas-Fermi approximation, we show that an interacting two dimensional electron gas may be described in terms of fractional exclusion statistics at zero and finite temperatures when the interaction has a short-range component. We argue that a likely physical situation for this phenomenon to occur may exist in two dimensional quantum dots.
