A Topological Phase in a Quantum Gravity Model

Abstract

The concept of a topological phase may be traced to the interpretation [[1]] of the integer quantum Hall effect in terms of (what topologists call) a Chern class (or Ktheory class) over the Brillion zone (momentum torus) and to Wilczek’s realization [[2]] that in (2 + 1)-dimensions, anyon statistics was a possibility to be considered on an equal footing… (More)
