Abstract:

Metaplectic anyons have been considered in the context of topological quantum computation. The quantum dimensions of these anyons are either integers, or square roots of integers, as is the case for Ising anyons. In this talk, I will discuss the structure of 'anyon models' in general, and the properties of metaplectic anyons in particular. Namely, I will comment on their classification, and on an interesting connection of their braid properties with number theory.
