Computability in Europe 2006
Logical Approaches to Computational Barriers
Why should anyone care about computing with anyons?
In this talk I will present a pedagogical introduction of the main ideas
and recent advances in the area of topological quantum computation. I
will give an overview of the concept of anyons and their exotic
statistics, present various models that exhibit topological behaviour,
and establish their relation to quantum computation. Possible directions
for the physical realization of topological systems and the detection of
anyonic behaviour will be elaborated.
