# Superuniversality from disorder at two-dimensional topological phase transitions

@article{Kang2020SuperuniversalityFD, title={Superuniversality from disorder at two-dimensional topological phase transitions}, author={Byungmin Kang and Siddharth A. Parameswaran and Andrew C. Potter and Romain Vasseur and Snir Gazit}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2020} }

We investigate the effects of quenched randomness on topological quantum phase transitions in strongly-interacting two-dimensional systems. We focus first on transitions driven by the condensation of a subset of fractionalized quasiparticles (`anyons') identified with `electric charge' excitations of a phase with intrinsic topological order. All other anyons have nontrivial mutual statistics with the condensed subset and hence become confined at the anyon condensation transition. Using a…

The probability distribution of the SF response P(lnρSF) displays striking differences across the transition: while it narrows with increasing system sizes L in the SF phase, it broadens in the BG regime, indicating an absence of self-averaging, and at the critical point P(lrSF+zlnL) is scale invariant.
