We develop a symbolic computational approach to classifying lowrank modular fusion categories, up to finite ambiguity. By a generalized form of Ocneanu rigidity due to Etingof, Ostrik and Nikshych, it is enough to classify modular fusion algebras of a given rank–that is, to determine the possible Grothendieck rings with modular realizations. We use this(More)
We develop a theory of localization for braid group representations associated with objects in braided fusion categories and, more generally, to YangBaxter operators in monoidal categories. The essential problem is to determine when a family of braid representations can be uniformly modelled upon a tensor power of a fixed vector space in such a way that the(More)
Abstract. It is known that every ribbon category with unimodality allows symmetrized 6j-symbols with full tetrahedral symmetries while a spherical category does not in general. We give an explicit counterexample for this, namely the category E. We define the mirror conjugate symmetry of 6j-symbols instead and show that 6j-symbols of any unitary spherical(More)
Harnessing non-abelian statistics of anyons to perform quantum computational tasks is getting closer to reality. While the existence of universal anyons by braiding alone such as the Fibonacci anyon is theoretically a possibility, accessible anyons with current technology all belong to a class that is called weakly integral—anyons whose squared quantum(More)
