We classify all unitary modular tensor categories (UMTCs) of rank ≤ 4. There are a total of 35 UMTCs of rank ≤ 4 up to ribbon tensor equivalence. Since the distinction between the modular S-matrix S and −S has both topological and physical significance, so in our convention there are a total of 70 UMTCs of rank ≤ 4. In particular, there are two trivial UMTCs with S = (±1). Each such UMTC can be obtained from 10 non-trivial prime UMTCs by direct product, and some symmetry operations. Explicit… Expand
On odd-dimensional modular tensor categories
We study odd-dimensional modular tensor categories and maximally non-self dual (MNSD) modular tensor categories of low rank. We give lower bounds for the ranks of modular tensor categories in termsExpand
Bantay's trace in unitary modular tensor categories
Abstract We give a proof of a formula for the trace of self-braidings (in an arbitrary channel) in UMTCs which first appeared in the context of rational conformal field theories (CFTs) [2] . TheExpand
Classification of Rank 6 Modular Categories with Galois Group $\langle (012)(345)\rangle$
Modular Tensor Categories (MTC's) arise in the study of certain condensed matter systems. There is an ongoing program to classify MTC's of low rank, up to modular data. We present an overview of theExpand
Congruence property and Galois symmetry of modular categories
A modular tensor category (MTC) is a spherical non-degenerate braided fusion category. The representation category of a factorizable Hopf algebra is a typical example of MTC. Associated to a MTC is aExpand
Classification of Super-Modular Categories by Rank
We pursue a classification of low-rank super-modular categories parallel to that of modular categories. We classify all super-modular categories up to rank = 6, and spin modular categories up to rankExpand

Fermionic Modular Categories and the 16-fold Way
We study spin and super-modular categories systematically as inspired by fermionic topological phases of matter, which are always fermion parity enriched and modelled by spin TQFTs at low energy. WeExpand
Rank-finiteness for modular categories
We prove a rank-finiteness conjecture for modular categories: up to equivalence, there are only finitely many modular categories of any fixed rank. Our technical advance is a generalization of theExpand
On the classification of low-rank braided fusion categories
A physical system is said to be in topological phase if at low energies and long wavelengths the observable quantities are invariant under diffeomorphisms. Such physical systems are of great interestExpand
Comparing Skein and Quantum Group Representations and Their Application to Asymptotic Faithfulness
We generalize the asymptotic faithfulness of the skein quantum $SU(2)$ representations of mapping class groups of orientable closed surfaces to skein $SU(3)$. Skein quantum representations of mappingExpand


On the structure of modular categories
For a braided tensor category C and a subcategory K there is a notion of centralizer CC(K), which is a full tensor subcategory of C. A pre-modular tensor category [7] is known to be modular in theExpand
On a family of non-unitarizable ribbon categories
Abstract.We consider several families of categories. The first are quotients of H. Andersen’s tilting module categories for quantum groups of Lie type B at odd roots of unity. The second consists ofExpand

From Quantum Groups to Unitary Modular Tensor Categories
Modular tensor categories are generalizations of the representation categories of quantum groups at roots of unity axiomatizing the properties nec- essary to produce 3-dimensional TQFTs. AlthoughExpand

Integral modular data and congruences
We compute all fusion algebras with symmetric rational S-matrix up to dimension 12. Only two of them may be used as S-matrices in a modular datum: the S-matrices of the quantum doubles of ℤ/2ℤ andExpand

From subfactors to categories and topology. II. The quantum double of tensor categories and subfactors
Abstract For every tensor category C there is a braided tensor category Z ( C ) , the ‘center’ of C . It is well known to be related to Drinfel'd's notion of the quantum double of a finiteExpand

Using a variety of methods developed in the literature (in particular, the theory of weak Hopf algebras), we prove a number of general results about fusion categories in characteristic zero. We showExpand
