# Braid Group Statistics and their Superselection Rules

@inproceedings{RehrenBraidGS, title={Braid Group Statistics and their Superselection Rules}, author={Karl-Henning Rehren} }

We present recent results on the statistics in low-dimensional quantum field theory. They are described by unitary representations of the braid group. We discuss the structure of the “reduced field bundle” which is a charged field algebra exhibiting the braid group in its commutation relations (“exchange algebra”). We systematize results about the superselection rules for sectors with braid group statistics.
