  • Three dimensional topological superconductors with time reversal symmetry (class DIII) are indexed by an integer $\nu$, the number of surface Majorana cones, according to the free fermion classification. The superfluid B phase of He$^3$ realizes the $\nu=1$ phase. Recently, it has been argued that this classification is reduced in the presence of interactions to Z$_{16}$. This was argued from the symmetry respecting surface topological orders of these states, which provide a non-perturbative… CONTINUE READING
