Since non-abelian anyons have become quite fashionable from the point of view of theory. I would like to know, whether there has actually been experimental confirmation of such objects. If you could ...
Jackiw and Rossi had a classic paper Zero modes of the vortex-fermion system (1981). In that nice-written paper, they found fermionic zero modes of Dirac operator under nontrivial Higgs vortex in 2D ...
Is it possible to have particles obeying anyonic statistics but not having fractional spin? I am wondering, because while spin in quantum physics arises from the geometry/topology of spacetime, ...
I am just reading Ryu, Moore and Ludwig's paper on classifications of topological insulators and quantum anomaly. They are trying to relate the quantum anomaly as a signal of the presence of a ...
