A bstractWe study the multi-party entanglement structure of states in Chern-Simons theory created by performing the path integral on 3-manifolds with linked torus boundaries, called link complements. For gauge group SU(2), the wavefunctions of these states (in a particular basis) are the colored Jones polynomials of the corresponding links. We first review the case of U(1) Chern-Simons theory where these are stabilizer states, a fact we use to re-derive an explicit formula for the entanglement… Expand
Multi-boundary entanglement in Chern-Simons theory with finite gauge groups

Quantum entanglement, supersymmetry, and the generalized Yang-Baxter equation.

From topological to quantum entanglement
A bstractEntanglement is a special feature of the quantum world that reflects the existence of subtle, often non-local, correlations between local degrees of freedom. In topological theories suchExpand

Hypergraph States in SU(N)1, N odd prime, Chern-Simons Theory
Graph states and hypergraph states can be constructed from products of basic operations that appear in SU(N)1. The level-rank dual of a theorem of Salton, Swingle, and Walter implies that theseExpand

Entanglement from Topology in Chern-Simons Theory
The way in which geometry encodes entanglement is a topic of much recent interest in quantum many-body physics and the AdS/CFT duality. This relation is particularly pronounced in the case ofExpand
