    Abstract

    We show that the en route vortex velocity dependent part of the Magnus force in a Josephson junction array is effectively zero, and predict zero Hall effect in the classical limit. However, geometric phases due to the finite superfluid density at superconductor grains have a profound influence on the quantum dynamics of vortices. Subsequently we find rich and complex Hall behaviors analogous to the Thouless-Kohmoto-Nightingale-den Nijs effect in the quantum regime.
