In a topological quantum computer, universal quantum computation is performed by dragging quasiparticle excitations of certain two dimensional systems around each other to form braids of their world lines in 2 + 1 dimensional space-time. In this Letter we show that any such quantum computation that can be done by braiding n identical quasiparticles can also be done by moving a single quasiparticle around n - 1 other identical quasiparticles whose positions remain fixed. 
In topological quantum computation quantum information is stored in exotic states of matter which are intrinsically protected from decoherence, and quantum operations are carried out by draggingExpand

Topological Quantum Computation
The connection between fault-tolerant quantum computation and nonabelian quantum statistics in two spatial dimensions is explored and it is shown that if information is encoded in pairs of quasiparticles, then the Aharonov-Bohm interactions can be adequate for universal fault-Tolerance quantum computation.
