This quantity comprises contributions provided on the overseas convention "The program of excessive Magnetic Fields in Semiconductor Physics", which was once held on the collage of Wiirzburg from August 22 to 26, 1988. within the culture of prior Wiirzburg conferences at the topic - the 1st convention was once held in 1972 - purely invited papers have been offered orally. All forty two teachers have been requested to check their topic to a point in order that this publication supplies a great assessment of the current nation of the respective subject. a glance on the contents indicates that the themes which were taken care of at past meetings haven't misplaced their relevance. to the contrary, the applying of excessive magnetic fields to semiconductors has grown considerably throughout the fresh previous. For the elucidation of the digital band constitution of semicon ductors excessive magnetic fields are nonetheless an imperative software. The research of two-dimensional digital structures specially is often attached with using excessive magnetic fields. this is because a excessive B-field provides angular momentum quantization to the boundary quantization found in het erostructures and superlattices. a look on the contributions exhibits that most take care of 2nd houses. distinctive emphasis used to be at the indispensable and fractional quantum corridor impression. Very fresh effects on the topic of the remark of a fragment with a fair denbminator have been offered. It grew to become noticeable that the polarization of the several fractional Landau degrees is extra advanced than initially anticipated.
