We extend the previous results of exact bosonization, mapping from fermionic operators to Pauli matrices, in 2d and 3d to arbitrary dimensions. This bosonization map gives a duality between any fermionic system in arbitrary $n$ spatial dimensions and a new class of $(n-1)$-form $\mathbb{Z}_2$ gauge theories in $n$ dimensions with a modified Gauss's law. This map preserves locality and has an explicit dependence on the second Stiefel-Whitney class and a choice of spin structure on the manifold…

Constraints of kinematic bosonization in two and higher dimensions
Contrary to the common wisdom, local bosonizations of fermionic systems exist in higher dimensions. Interestingly, resulting bosonic variables must satisfy local constraints of a gauge type. They
Model of bosonization by flux attachment on hamiltonian lattices of arbitrary dimension
We present and prove the correctness of a bosonization prescription for fermionic lattice models in arbitrary dimensions. Our bosonized model is subject to constraints, which are interpreted in the

Bosonization of Majorana modes and edge states
We present a bosonization procedure which replaces fermions with generalized spin variables subject to local constraints. It requires that the number of Majorana modes per lattice site matches the


Exact bosonization in two spatial dimensions and a new class of lattice gauge theories
We describe a 2d analog of the Jordan-Wigner transformation which maps an arbitrary fermionic system on a 2d lattice to a lattice gauge theory while preserving the locality of the Hamiltonian. When

The generality of these results suggests that the observation of Fermion excitations in nature does not demand that anticommuting Fermions fields be fundamental, and extra conserved degrees of freedom are introduced.
