Transport experiments are sensitive to charged 'quasiparticle' excitations of the fractional quantum Hall effect. Inelastic Raman scattering experiments have probed an amazing variety of other excitations: excitons, rotons, bi-rotons, trions, flavor altering excitons, spin waves, spin-flip excitons, and spin-flip rotons. This paper reviews the status of our theoretical understanding of these excitations.
