We develop the Density Matrix Renormalization Group (DMRG) technique for numerically studying incompressible fractional quantum Hall (FQH) states on the sphere. We calculate accurate estimates for ground state energies and excitationgaps at FQH filling fractions \nu=1/3 and \nu=5/2 for systems that are almost twice as large as the largest ever studied by exact diagonalization. We establish, by carefully comparing with existing numerical results on smaller systems, that DMRG is a highly
... numerical tool for studying incompressible FQH states.
