This manuscript is the written companion to lectures presented at Les Houches in the summer of 2004. The intention is to introduce young scientists to some of the fascinating physics of two-dimensional electrons at high magnetic fields. With two Nobel prizes to its credit already, this topic surely rates as one of the most important in contemporary physics. The field is, of course, huge. I cannot hope, nor did I attempt, to do justice to more than a tiny fraction of it. My choice of topics on which to concentrate is highly personal and should not be taken as a judgment on what is most interesting or important in the field. They are simply the things that I like, sort of understand, and have worked very hard on over the last several years.

It is a pleasure to acknowledge the essential help of my students Ian Spielman and Melinda Kellogg, who performed a number of the experiments discussed here. As always, my collaborators Loren Pfeiffer and Ken West, who designed and grew the many heterostructure samples needed for this research, cannot be thanked enough. I am also indebted to the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and Caltech, for their generous support of this work.
