Non-Abelian statistics and fractionalized degrees of freedom

Xiao-Gang Wen, MIT

This talk will explain the notion of topological order and its connection to long range quantum entanglement. In particular, we will discuss the resulting emergent Fermi statistics, fractional statistics, fractional angular momentum, and even fractionalized degrees of freedom.
