The Quantum Hall Effect Leaves Flatland

Since the epoch of general relativity, scientists have dealt with higher-dimensional

wonderlands. The contemporary field of topological condensed matter similarly deals

with systems of arbitrary dimensions. Nowadays synthetic dimensions can be quantum

engineered in the lab. For the first time, we have thus proposed and realized physics of

the 4D Hall effect in experiments.
