In quantum mechanics, I have been going through basics of the subject. In general the space of quantum states is Hilbert space (which is Euclidean - I presume). Being just curious, are there any ...
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 ...
