# Topological order with a twist: Ising anyons from an Abelian model.

@article{Bombin2010TopologicalOW, title={Topological order with a twist: Ising anyons from an Abelian model.}, author={H. Bombin}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2010}, volume={105 3}, pages={ 030403 } }

Anyon models can be symmetric under some permutations of their topological charges. One can then conceive topological defects that, under monodromy, transform anyons according to a symmetry. We study the realization of such defects in the toric code model, showing that a process where defects are braided and fused has the same outcome as if they were Ising anyons. These ideas can also be applied in the context of topological codes.
