THREE LECTURES ON TOPOLOGICAL PHASES OF MATTER Fig. 1. – In one dimension, the single-particle energy ε(p) generically crosses the Fermi energy at an isolated momentum p 0. This is a relativistic action for a 1d chiral fermion, except that v appears instead of c and −i∂/∂x represents p−p 0 instead of maisondesvautours.com we have omitted from H the “constant” ε(p. Special emphasis is placed on non-Abelian topological order, the conditions under which it may occur and possible methods of its experimental detection. (ii) Studying the feasibility of using topological phases for fault-tolerant quantum computation, specifically those expected to . Topological Phases of Quantum Matter July 11 – August 5, Detailed Schedule All lectures are in Duane Physics Room G Public lectures in Duane Physics Room G1B30 Week 1, July Sunday, July 10 th pm – Registration mixer with refreshments WeatherTech Café in the C4C Beer and Wine Will Be Served. The topological quantum computation tries to use the emergent properties of many-particle systems to encode and manipulate quantum information in a way that is fault-tolerant. The physics of topological phases evolves alongside topological quantum computation and it is influenced by it.
