Resumen:
We present the evaluation of the effective action, at finite temperature and density, for Dirac fields in the presence of an electromagnetic background, in three Euclidean dimensions. Apart from explaining (in the low temperature limit) the behavior of the Hall conductivity for graphene, our results show the existence of a direct relationship between the selection of a phase for the Dirac determinant and the generation (or lack thereof) of Berry┬┤s phases and Chern-Simons terms.
