Anyonic Chains -- $\alpha$-Induction -- CFT -- Defects -- Subfactors

  title={Anyonic Chains -- \$\alpha\$-Induction -- CFT -- Defects -- Subfactors},
  author={Stefan Hollands},
Given a unitary fusion category, one can define the Hilbert space of a so-called “anyonic spin-chain” and nearest neighbor Hamiltonians providing a real-time evolution. There is considerable evidence that suitable scaling limits of such systems can lead to 1 ` 1-dimensional conformal field theories (CFTs), and in fact, can be used potentially to construct novel classes of CFTs. Besides the Hamiltonians and their densities, the spin chain is known to carry an algebra of symmetry operators… 



Anyonic quantum spin chains: Spin-1 generalizations and topological stability

There are many interesting parallels between systems of interacting non-Abelian anyons and quantum magnetism occurring in ordinary SU(2) quantum magnets. Here we consider theories of so-called

Conformal Field Theories as Scaling Limit of Anyonic Chains

We provide a mathematical definition of a low energy scaling limit of a sequence of general non-relativistic quantum theories in any dimension, and apply our formalism to anyonic chains. We formulate

On α-Induction, Chiral Generators and¶Modular Invariants for Subfactors

Abstract:We consider a type III subfactor N⊂N of finite index with a finite system of braided N-N morphisms which includes the irreducible constituents of the dual canonical endomorphism. We apply

Anyonic Chains, Topological Defects, and Conformal Field Theory

Motivated by the three-dimensional topological field theory/two-dimensional conformal field theory (CFT) correspondence, we study a broad class of one-dimensional quantum mechanical models, known as

Characterization of 2D Rational Local Conformal Nets and Its Boundary Conditions: the Maximal Case

Let A be a completely rational local Mobius covariant net on S 1 , which describes a set of chiral observables. We show that local Mobius covari- ant nets B2 on 2D Minkowski space which contain the

A Short Introduction to Fibonacci Anyon Models

We discuss how to construct models of interacting anyons by generalizing quantum spin Hamiltonians to anyonic degrees of freedom. The simplest interactions energetically favor pairs of anyons to fuse

Microscopic models of interacting Yang–Lee anyons

Collective states of interacting non-Abelian anyons have recently been studied mostly in the context of certain fractional quantum Hall states, such as the Moore–Read state proposed to describe the
