Subject: Elementary Introduction to Fractional Quantum Hall Effects: A Chern-Simons Approach

In this talk, I will briefly discuss the effective K matrix formalism of fractional quantum Hall effects base on Wen's book. I will mainly focus on the single-layered, multilayered FQH systems, and the hierarchical states.
