1997, Kitaev proposed the idea of topological quantum bit and fault torrent quantum computation in an Abelian state. 2001, Kitaev proposed the topological quantum compuation by braiding non- Abelian anyons. 2001, Preskill, Freedman and others proposed a universal topological quantum computation. Milestone for topological quantum computation
(I) Anyons and braid groups
Abelian statistics via non-Abelian statistics
Exchange statistics and braid group Particle Exchange : world lines braiding
General anyon theory 1. A finite set of quasi-particles or anyonic “charges.” Fusion rules 2. Fusion rules (specifying how charges can combine or split). Braiding rules 3. Braiding rules (specifying behavior under particle exchange).
3. Associativity relations for fusion: F matrix 2. Braiding rules: R matrix
Non-Abelian statistics Exchanging particles 1 and 2: Matrices M 12 and M 23 don’t commute; Matrices M form a higher-dimensional representation of the braid-group. Exchanging particles 2 and 3:

The energy eigenstates are labeled by the eigenstates of Because of, the eigenvalues are Solving the Wen-plaquette model
For g>0, the ground state is The ground state energy is E 0 =Ng The elementary excitation is The energy gap for it becomes The energy gap
The statistics for the elementary excitations There are two kinds of Bosonic excitations: Z2 vortex Z2 charge Each kind of excitations moves on each sub- plaquette: Why?
There are two constraints (the even-by-even lattice): One for the even plaquettes, the other for the odd plaquettes The hopping from even plaquette to odd violates the constraints : You cannot change a Z2 vortex into a Z2 charge
On an even-by-even lattice, there are totally states Under the constaints, the number of states are only For the ground state, it must be four-fold degeneracy. Topological degeneracy on a torus (even-by-even lattice) :
Z2 vortex (charge) can only move in the same sub- plaquette: The hopping operators for Z2 vortex (charge) are The dynamics of the Z2 Vortex and Z2 charge
X. G. Wen, PRD68, 024501 (2003). The mutual semion statistics between the Z2 Vortex and Z2 charge When an excitation (Z2 vortex) in even-plaquette move around an excitation (Z2 charge) in odd- plaquette, the operator is it is -1 with an excitation on it This is the character for mutual mutual semion statistics Fermion as the bound state of a Z2 vortex and a Z2 charge.
The hopping operators of Z2 vortex and charge are Controlling the hopping of quasi-particles by external fields The hopping operator of fermion is So one can control the dynamics of different quasi- particles by applying different external.

topological qubits on torus Toric codes : topological qubits on torus There are four degenerate ground states for the Z2 topological order on a torus: m, n = 0, 1 label the flux into the holes of the torus.
How to control the topological qubits? A. Y. Kitaev : Unfortunately, I do not know any way this quantum information can get in or out. Too few things can be done by moving abelian anyons. All other imaginable ways of accessing the ground state are uncontrollable “Unfortunately, I do not know any way this quantum information can get in or out.
