  Can these questions be imported?

+ 3 like - 0 dislike

I have some old posts from PSE which are not answered/ not satisfactorily answered, I have chosen some I-believe well posed ones,

From quantization under external classical gauge field to a fully quantized theory

How is Laughlin's gauge argument explaining integer quantum hall effect(IQHE)?

(well actually for the above one I don't really know if it is graduate level, I'm very much a newbie to condensed matter physics)

Can we “trivialize” the equivalence between canonical quantization of fields and second quantization of particles?

(the above I suspect is somewhat an open-ended question, I took one answer as the "correct" one simply because the answer provides a perspetive that I was aware of but never went further into as many details as it provides. So in fact I'd like to see more discussions)

How to get the iϵ prescription for a Faddeev-Popov ghost propagator?

Could the adminitrators import these?

Done. Dilaton said there was some bug but it seemed work well, he had actually already imported the first three.  

Thank you guys.
