(1) Classifying "Phase Structure of (Quantum) Gauge Theory" (with a gap) is about the same as classifying phase structure of topologically ordered states. Some topologically ordered states are described by a group and can be related to a gauge theory. Some other topologically ordered states are not related to gauge theory. (2) One way to classify "Phase ...
Can we say that if the mass gap of the anyon fractional exicitations $\Delta$ are larger than the thermal energy $E_H=k_b T$ (temperature at $T$), $$ \Delta >> E_H=k_b T $$ then we still can observe topological order at small but finite temperature.(?)
