In this work, we show that the phenomenon of fractional quantum Hall effect can be obtained for 2D and 3D crystal structures, using the noncommutative nature of spacetime and the Lambert W function. This fractional conductivity has been shown to be a consequence of the noncommutative geometry underlying the structure of graphene. Also, it has been shown, for graphene, that in the 3D case the conductivity is extremely small and depends on the self-energy that arises due to random fluctuations or zitterbewegung.
