Topological quantum field theory for Abelian topological phases and loop braiding statistics in (3+1) -dimensions

Topological quantum field theory (TQFT) is a very powerful theoretical tool to study topological phases and phase transitions. In 2+1d, it is well known that the Chern-Simons theory captures all the

Tunneling Topological Vacua via Extended Operators: (Spin-)TQFT Spectra and Boundary Deconfinement in Various Dimensions

Distinct quantum vacua of topologically ordered states can be tunneled into each other via extended operators. The possible applications include condensed matter and quantum cosmology. We present a

Topological orders, braiding statistics, and mixture of two types of twisted BF theories in five dimensions

Topological orders are a prominent paradigm for describing quantum many-body systems without symmetry-breaking orders. We present a topological quantum field theoretical (TQFT) study on topological

Loop Braiding Statistics and Interacting Fermionic Symmetry-Protected Topological Phases in Three Dimensions

We study Abelian braiding statistics of loop excitations in three-dimensional (3D) gauge theories with fermionic particles and the closely related problem of classifying 3D fermionic

Non-Abelian three-loop braiding statistics for 3D fermionic topological phases

Fractional statistics is one of the most intriguing features of topological phases in 2D. In particular, the so-called non-Abelian statistics plays a crucial role towards realizing topological

Non-Abelian gauged fracton matter field theory: Sigma models, superfluids, and vortices

By gauging a higher-moment polynomial degree global symmetry and a discrete charge conjugation (i.e., particle-hole) symmetry coupled to matter fields (two symmetries mutually non-commutative), we

We analyze $2+1d$ and $3+1d$ Bosonic Symmetry Protected Topological (SPT) phases of matter protected by onsite symmetry group $G$ by using dual bulk and boundary approaches. In the bulk we study an

Classification of 3+1D Bosonic Topological Orders (II): The Case When Some Pointlike Excitations Are Fermions

We call a topological order of 3+1-dimensional bosonic systems an all-boson (AB) topological order if all emergent point-like excitations are bosons. It was shown that AB topological orders,

We explore various 4d Yang-Mills gauge theories (YM) living as boundary conditions of 5d gapped short-/long-range entangled (SRE/LRE) topological states. Specifically, we explore 4d time-reversal



Topological invariants for gauge theories and symmetry-protected topological phases

We study the braiding statistics of particlelike and looplike excitations in two- (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) gauge theories with finite, Abelian gauge group. The gauge theories that we consider

Wilson operator algebras and ground states of coupled BF theories

The multi-flavor $BF$ theories in (3+1) dimensions with cubic or quartic coupling are the simplest topological quantum field theories that can describe fractional braiding statistics between

Topological quantum field theory of three-dimensional bosonic Abelian-symmetry-protected topological phases

Symmetry-protected topological phases (SPT) are short-range entangled gapped states protected by global symmetry. Nontrivial SPT phases cannot be adiabatically connected to the trivial disordered

Field-theory representation of gauge-gravity symmetry-protected topological invariants, group cohomology, and beyond.

Gauge fields are used to represent those symmetry twists in closed spacetimes of any dimensionality and arbitrary topology and show that SPT invariants of pure gauge actions describe the SPTs predicted by group cohomology, while the mixed gauge-gravityactions describe the beyond-group-cohomology SPTs.

Symmetry-protected topological (SPT) phases are gapped short-range-entangled quantum phases with a symmetry $G$, which can all be smoothly connected to the trivial product states if we break the

String-net condensation: A physical mechanism for topological phases

We show that quantum systems of extended objects naturally give rise to a large class of exotic phases---namely topological phases. These phases occur when extended objects, called ``string-nets,''
