Fractional solitons on the edge of the Fractional Quantum Hall states.

We argue that dynamics of gapless Fractional Quantum Hall
Edge states is essentially non-linear and that it features fractionally
quantized solitons propagating along the edge. Observation of solitons would be
a direct evidence of fractional charges. We show that the non-linear dynamics
of the Laughlin's FQH state is governed by the quantum Benjamin-Ono equation.
