Title: Ground state degeneracy of non-Abelian topological order in open surfaces
Date: Thu, Dec 18, 2014, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: We will first give a brief review of the classification of topological phases of matter. We will discuss previous work on the classification of boundary conditions of abelian topological order.
Then we will discuss its generalization to non-Abelian phases based on the idea of anyon condensation.
