Fractional statistics and confinement
Abstract
It is shown that a pointlike composite having charge and magnetic moment displays a confining potential for the static interaction while simultaneously obeying fractional statistics in a pure gauge theory in three dimensions, without a ChernSimons term. This result is distinct from the MaxwellChernSimons theory that shows a screening nature for the potential.
