Collective states of interacting fibonacci anyons
  KTH/Nordita/SU seminar in Theoretical Physics [before December 2013]

Wednesday 30 January 2008
from 11:00 to 12:00
at FA31
Speaker : Eddy Ardonne (NORDITA)
Abstract : Fibonacci anyons have been studied in the context of topological quantum computation. After introducing these anynos, we show that chains of interacting Fibonacci anyons can support a variety of collective ground states ranging from extended critical phases to gapped phases with ground-state degeneracy and quasiparticle excitations. In particular, we generalize the Majumdar-Ghosh Hamiltonian to anyonic degrees of freedom by extending recently studied pairwise anyonic interactions to three-anyon interactions. The energetic competition between two- and three-anyon interactions leads to a rich phase diagram that harbours multiple critical and gapped phases.
