## Abstract

The eigenstates of interacting electrons in the fractional quantum Hall phase typically form fairly well-defined bands in the energy space. We study systems of six and eight electrons for filling factor 3/7>> 2) / 7 and show that composite fermion theory gives insight into the origin of these bands and provides an accurate and complete microscopic description of the strongly correlated many-body states in the low-energy bands. This implies that, somewhat like in Landaus Fermi liquid theory, there is a one-to-one analogy between the low-energy Hilbert space of strongly interacting electrons in the fractional quantum Hall effect and that of weakly interacting electrons in the integer quantum Hall effect.
