We relate the ground state degeneracy of a non-Abelian topological phase on a surface with boundaries to the anyon condensates that break the topological phase into a trivial phase. Specifically, we propose that gapped boundary conditions of the surface are in one-to-one correspondence with the sets of condensates, each being able to completely break the phase, and we substantiate this by examples. The ground state degeneracy resulting from a particular boundary condition coincides with the… Expand
Boundary Hamiltonian theory for gapped topological phases on an open surface
A bstractIn this paper we propose a Hamiltonian approach to gapped topological phases on open surfaces. Our setting is an extension of the Levin-Wen model to a 2d graph on an open surface, whoseExpand
Bulk Entanglement and Boundary Spectra in Gapped Topological Phases
We study the correspondence between boundary spectrum of non-chiral topological orders on an open manifold $\mathcal{M}$ with gapped boundaries and the entanglement spectrum in the bulk of gappedExpand
Boundary Hamiltonian theory for gapped topological orders
In this letter, we report our systematic construction of the lattice Hamiltonian model of topological orders on open surfaces, with explicit boundary terms. We do this mainly for the Levin-WenExpand
Quantum entanglement in topological phases on a torus
In this paper, we study the effect of nontrivial spatial topology on quantum entanglement by examining the degenerate ground states of a topologically ordered system on a torus. Using the string-netExpand
Symmetry fractionalization, defects, and gauging of topological phases
We examine the interplay of symmetry and topological order in $2+1$ dimensional topological phases of matter. We present a definition of the topological symmetry group, which characterizes theExpand
Ishibashi states, topological orders with boundaries and topological entanglement entropy. Part I
A bstractIn this paper, we study gapped edges/interfaces in a 2+1 dimensional bosonic topological order and investigate how the topological entanglement entropy is sensitive to them. We present aExpand
Exactly soluble model of boundary degeneracy.
TLDR
An exactly soluble microscopic model manifesting this topological degeneracy is constructed and it is argued that the proposed scheme is experimentally reasonable. Expand
Defect Verlinde Formula for Edge Excitations in Topological Order.
TLDR
A formula is derived that relates the fusion rules of the boundary excitation and the "half-linking" number between condensed anyons and confined boundary excitations and is a direct analogue of the Verlinde formula. Expand
Ishibashi states, topological orders with boundaries and topological entanglement entropy. Part II. Cutting through the boundary
Abstract We compute the entanglement entropy in a 2+1 dimensional topological order in the presence of gapped boundaries. Specifically, we consider entanglement cuts that cut through theExpand
Higher central charges and topological boundaries in 2+1-dimensional TQFTs
A 2+1-dimensional topological quantum field theory (TQFT) may or may not admit topological (gapped) boundary conditions. A famous necessary, but not sufficient, condition for the existence of aExpand
