We describe four closely related Hubbard-like models (models A, B, C and D) of particles that can hop on a 2D Kagome lattice interacting via Coulomb repulsion. The particles can be either bosons (models A and B) or (spinless) fermions (models C and D). Models A and C also include a ring exchange term. In all four cases we solve equations in the model parameters to arrive at an exactly soluble point whose ground state manifold is the extensively degenerate ``d-isotopy space'' $\bar{V}_d$, 0<d<2… Expand
Anyons in an exactly solved model and beyond
A spin-1/2 system on a honeycomb lattice is studied. The interactions between nearest neighbors are of XX, YY or ZZ type, depending on the direction of the link; different types of interactions mayExpand

For many years, it was thought that Landau's theory of symmetry breaking could describe essentially all phases and phase transitions. However, in the last twenty years, it has become clear that atExpand
Non-Abelian Anyons and Topological Quantum Computation
Topological quantum computation has emerged as one of the most exciting approaches to constructing a fault-tolerant quantum computer. The proposal relies on the existence of topological states ofExpand

Operator quantum error-correcting subsystems for self-correcting quantum memories
The most general method for encoding quantum information is not to encode the information into a subspace of a Hilbert space, but to encode information into a subsystem of a Hilbert space. RecentlyExpand
Stability of quantum concatenated-code Hamiltonians
Protecting quantum information from the detrimental effects of decoherence and lack of precise quantum control is a central challenge that must be overcome if a large robust quantum computer is to beExpand
