(Weizmann Institute of Science)
In this talk I will review several proposed experiments aimed at identifying non-abelian quantum Hall states, particularly the nu=5/2. These proposed experiments will include the temperature dependence of the compressibility and the magnetization of macroscopic samples, interference in mesoscopic samples and Coulomb blockade in quantum dots. In particular, I will discuss the conditions needed for the compressibility and magnetization to reflect non-abelian quasi- particles, the inter-relations between interference and Coulomb blockade, and the subtleties associated with each of them. I will also comment on existing experimental data.
