How do you measure the topological spin of an anyon? So how could an experimental setup look like? Is topological spin an observable at all?
I asked the following question in mathematics stack exchange but I'd like to have answers from physicists too; I have been studying (extended) topological quantum field theories (in short TQFTs) from ...
I am studying about the moduli space of a 2 monopole system from Harvey's notes, and Manton's paper. In both of these, (Harvey section 6.2), after constructing the Lagrangian for a two dyons system, ...
What happens to the topological entanglement entropy of a system, when it is driven out of its groundstate by increasing the temperature?
Can anybody tell me, if generically any system, which is solely described by a topological field theory, resides in a topological phase? I cant find any clear notion of topological phase. Only ...
