  1. Anyons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Wilczek, F.


    At first anyons were mostly thought of, by those few physicists who thought about them at all, as mathematical curiosities. Further investigation revealed the presence of anyons in theoretical models that quite closely resembled ones used to describe actual systems and materials. Detailed studies also demonstrated the depth and inner consistency of the concept of anyons. Anyons are the basic excitations in the spectacular states of matter known as fraction quantized Hall states. Appreciation of this fact has led to a more profound understanding of several aspects of the quantized Hall effect itself and has stimulated considerable excitement and activity in the physics community. Anyons provide a new paradigm for the behavior of matter in quantum mechanics, and if there is any justice in the world, many other realizations await discovery. It is particularly intriguing that there is an extremely natural and powerful mechanism of superconductivity connected with anyons. A theory of high-temperature superconductivity has been constructed that exploits this feature of anyons. It may well apply to the copper oxide superconductors of recent fame. In this article the author shall review the logic that leads one to the concept of anyons, the situations in which they are at present known to occur and the mechanism of superconductivity they suggest

    The Faddeev-Reshetikhin-Takhtajan method to construct matrix bialgebras from non-singular solutions of the quantum Yang-Baxter equation is extended to the anyonic or Z{sub n}-graded case. The resulting anyonic quantum matrices are braided groups in which the braiding is given by a phase factor. (orig.).

  3. Perturbative anyon gas

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Dasnieres de Veigy, A.; Ouvry, S.; Paris-6 Univ., 75


    The problem of the statistical mechanics of an anyon gas is addressed. A perturbative analysis in the anyonic coupling constant α is reviewed, and the thermodynamical potential is computed at first and second order. An adequate second quantized formalism (field theory at finite temperature) is proposed. At first order in perturbation theory, the results are strikingly simple: only the second virial coefficient close to bosonic statistics is corrected. At second order, however, the complexity of the anyon model appears. One can compute exactly the perturbative correction to each cluster coefficient. However, and contrary to first order, a closed expression for the equation of state seems out of reach. As an illustration, the perturbative expressions of a 3 , a 4 , a 5 and a 6 are given at second order. Finally, using the same formalism, the equation of state of an anyon gas in a constant magnetic field is analyzed at first order in perturbation theory. (K.A.) 16 refs.; 3 figs.; 7 tabs

  5. The theory of anyonic superconductivity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lukken, J.D.; Sonnenschien, J.; Weiss, N.


    Particles in two spatial dimensions with fractional statistics known, generically, as anyons, have been of interest to particle physicists for nearly ten years. A major change in the direction of research occurred when it was discovered that anyons could play a role as quasiparticles in condensed-matter systems. This was originally discovered to be the case in systems exhibiting the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect. The application of anyons to condensed-matter systems received yet another boost when it was discovered by Laughlin that even an ideal gas of anyons was a superfluid and, as a result, a gas of charged anyons would be a superconductor. This led immediately to attempts to explain the superconductivity of high-T c materials which are layered ceramics in terms of anyons. The main challenge was to find a reasonable model for these materials which has quasiparticles obeying anyonic statistics. The goal of this article is to review the theory of anyonic superconductivity and its possible relation to high-T c materials. The emphasis in this review is on field-theoretical methods. In this paper the authors explain what an anyon is and how it can be modeled mathematically. The authors discuss the possible relationship between anyons and high-T c materials. The authors review several of the attempts to obtain anyonic quasiparticles from the Hubbard model which is commonly used to describe these materials. The authors describe the mathematical modeling of anyons in terms of their interaction with an Abelian gauge field with a Chern-Simons term. This description of anyons is used extensively in this article. The authors discuss the possible criteria for superconductivity in anyonic systems with particular emphasis on criteria which would be useful in the Chern-Simons description

  6. On anyon superconductivity--

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Chen, Y.-H.; Wilczek, F.; Witten, E.; Halperin, B.I.


    We investigate the statistical mechanics of a gas of fractional statistics particles in 2 + 1 dimensions. In the case of statistics very close to Fermi statistics (statistical parameter θ = π(1 - 1/n), for large n), the effect of the statistics is a weak attraction. Building upon earlier RPA calculation for the case n = 2, the authors argue that for large n perturbation theory is reliable and exhibits superfluidity (or superconductivity after coupling to electromagnetism). They describe the order parameter for this superconductng phase in terms of spontaneous breaking of commutativity of translations as opposed to the usual pairing order parameters. The vortices of the superconducting anyon gas are charged, and superconducting order parameters of the usual type vanish. They investigate the characteristic P and T violating phenomenology

  7. Exclusion Bounds for Extended Anyons (United States)

    Larson, Simon; Lundholm, Douglas


    We introduce a rigorous approach to the many-body spectral theory of extended anyons, that is quantum particles confined to two dimensions that interact via attached magnetic fluxes of finite extent. Our main results are many-body magnetic Hardy inequalities and local exclusion principles for these particles, leading to estimates for the ground-state energy of the anyon gas over the full range of the parameters. This brings out further non-trivial aspects in the dependence on the anyonic statistics parameter, and also gives improvements in the ideal (non-extended) case.

  8. Holographic anyonization: a systematic approach

Box 64, FIN-00014 University of Helsinki (Finland); Helsinki Institute of Physics,P.O. Box 64, FIN-00014 University of Helsinki (Finland)


    Anyons have garnered substantial interest theoretically as well as experimentally. Due to the intricate nature of their interactions, however, even basic notions such as the equation of state for any kind of anyon gas have eluded a profound understanding so far. Using holography as a guiding principle, we propose a general method for an alternative quantization of electromagnetic degrees of freedom in the gravitational dual to obtain an effective physical description of strongly correlated anyonic systems. We then demonstrate the application of this prescription in a toy model of an anyonic fluid at finite charge density and magnetic field, dual to a dyonic black brane in AdS{sub 4}, and compute the equation of state and various transport coefficients explicitly.

  9. Anyonic entanglement and topological entanglement entropy (United States)

    Bonderson, Parsa; Knapp, Christina; Patel, Kaushal


    We study the properties of entanglement in two-dimensional topologically ordered phases of matter. Such phases support anyons, quasiparticles with exotic exchange statistics. The emergent nonlocal state spaces of anyonic systems admit a particular form of entanglement that does not exist in conventional quantum mechanical systems. We study this entanglement by adapting standard notions of entropy to anyonic systems. We use the algebraic theory of anyon models (modular tensor categories) to illustrate the nonlocal entanglement structure of anyonic systems. Using this formalism, we present a general method of deriving the universal topological contributions to the entanglement entropy for general system configurations of a topological phase, including surfaces of arbitrary genus, punctures, and quasiparticle content. We analyze a number of examples in detail. Our results recover and extend prior results for anyonic entanglement and the topological entanglement entropy.

  10. Fractional supersymmetry through generalized anyonic algebra

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Douari, Jamila; Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste; Hassouni, Yassine


    The construction of anyonic operators and algebra is generalized by using quons operators. Therefore, the particular version of fractional supersymmetry is constructed on the two-dimensional lattice by associating two generalized anyons of different kinds. The fractional supersymmetry Hamiltonian operator is obtained on the two-dimensional lattice and the quantum algebra U q (sl 2 ) is realized. (author)

  11. Generalized fractional supersymmetry associated to different species of anyons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Douari, Jamila; Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste; Hassouni, Yassine


    We consider multiple species of anyons characterized by different statistical parameters. First, we redefine the anyonic algebra and then generalize this definition by constructing the anyonic superalgebra. Finally, we use these tools to generalize the fractional supersymmetry already discussed. (author)

  12. Anyonic glueballs from an effective string model (United States)

    Boulanger, Nicolas; Buisseret, Fabien


    Relying on an effective-string approach in which glueballs—bound states of pure Yang-Mills theory—are modeled by closed strings, we give arguments suggesting that anyonic glueballs, i.e. glueballs with arbitrary spin, may exist in (2 +1 )-dimensional Yang-Mills theory. We then focus on the large-Nc limit of S U (Nc) Yang-Mills theory and show that our model leads to a mass spectrum in good agreement with lattice data in the scalar sector, while it predicts the masses and spins of anyonic glueball states.

  13. Constructions of quantum fields with anyonic statistics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Plaschke, M.


    From the principles of algebraic quantum field theory it follows that in low dimensions particles are not necessarily bosons or fermions, but their statistics can in general be governed by the braid group. Such particles are called anyons and their possible statistics is intimately related to their localization properties and their covariance with respect to rotations. This work is concerned with the explicit construction of quantum fields with anyonic statistics which are localized in various different regions on two- and three-dimensional Minkowski space, and we will analyze the connection between localization, statistics and spin. The reason why this is considerably more difficult than for bosons or fermions is the no-go theorem regarding free cone-localized anyons in d=2+1. This problem is approached in this work from different directions leaving out some of the underlying assumptions one makes in the abstract algebraic quantum field theory. Despite a similar no-go theorem for free local anyons, it is in two dimensions possible to construct compactly localized quantum field nets with anyonic commutation relations for every mass m ≥ 0 and every statistics parameter by using the theory of loop groups and implementable Bogoliubov transformations. This does not work in higher dimensions so in d=2+1 we will first construct polarization free generators, which are only wedge-local, using a recent work about multiplicative deformations of free quantum fields on the Fock space. By generalizing this procedure to the charged case it is possible to extend the set of admissible deformations and end up with fields satisfying anyonic commutation relations, which are covariant w.r.t a Poincaré group representation with arbitrary real-valued spin. Another approach, which further demonstrates the connection between localization, statistics and spin of quantum field nets, is to focus first only on the rotational degrees of freedom and construct field operators on the circle

  14. Semicalssical quantization of interacting anyons in a strong magnetic field

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Levit, S.; Sivan, N.


    We represent a semiclassical theory of charged interacting anyons in strong magnetic fields. We apply this theory to a number of few anyons systems including two interacting anyons in the presence of an impurity and three interacting anyons. We discuss the dependence of their energy levels on the statistical parameter and find regions in which this dependence follows very different patterns. The semiclassical arguments allow to correlate these patterns with the change in the character of the classical motion of the system. (author)

  15. Non-relativistic anyons from holography

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Niko Jokela


    Full Text Available We study generic types of holographic matter residing in Lifshitz invariant defect field theory as modeled by adding probe D-branes in the bulk black hole spacetime characterized by dynamical exponent z and with hyperscaling violation exponent θ. Our main focus will be on the collective excitations of the dense matter in the presence of an external magnetic field. Constraining the defect field theory to 2+1 dimensions, we will also allow the gauge fields become dynamical and study the properties of a strongly coupled anyonic fluid. We will deduce the universal properties of holographic matter and show that the Einstein relation always holds.

  16. Topological insulating phases of non-Abelian anyonic chains

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    DeGottardi, Wade


    Boundary conformal field theory is brought to bear on the study of topological insulating phases of non- Abelian anyonic chains. These phases display protected anyonic end modes. We consider spin-1/2 su(2)t chains at any level k, focusing on the most prominent examples: the case k = 2 describes Ising anyons (equivalent to Majorana fermions) and k = 3 corresponds to Fibonacci anyons. The method we develop is quite general and rests on a deep connection between boundary conformal field theory and topological symmetry. This method tightly constrains the nature of the topological insulating phases of these chains for general k. Emergent anyons which arise at domain walls are shown to have the same braiding properties as the physical quasiparticles. This suggests a "solid-stat.e" topological quantum computation scheme in which emergent anyons are braided by tuning the couplings of non-Abelian quasiparticles in a fixed network.

  17. Mean-field theory of anyons near Bose statistics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    McCabe, J.; MacKenzie, R.


    The validity of a mean-field approximation for a boson-based free anyon gas near Bose statistics is shown. The magnetic properties of the system is discussed in the approximation that the statistical magnetic field is uniform. It is proved that the anyon gas does not exhibit a Meissner effect in the domain of validity the approximation. (K.A.) 7 refs

  18. Strongly interacting mesoscopic systems of anyons in one dimension

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Zinner, N. T.


    Using the fractional statistical properties of so-called anyonic particles, we present exact solutions for up to six strongly interacting particles in one-dimensional confinement that interpolate the usual bosonic and fermionic limits. Specifically, we consider two-component mixtures of anyons...

  19. Non-Abelian anyons: when Ising meets Fibonacci

    NARCIS (Netherlands)

    Grosfeld, E.; Schoutens, K.


    We consider an interface between two non-Abelian quantum Hall states: the Moore-Read state, supporting Ising anyons, and the k=2 non-Abelian spin-singlet state, supporting Fibonacci anyons. It is shown that the interface supports neutral excitations described by a (1+1)-dimensional conformal field

  20. Anyons and the elliptic Calogero-Sutherland model


    Langmann, Edwin


    We obtain a second quantization of the elliptic Calogero-Sutherland (eCS) model by constructing a quantum field theory model of anyons on a circle and at a finite temperature. This yields a remarkable identity involving anyon correlation functions and providing an algorithm for solving of the eCS model. The eigenfunctions obtained define an elliptic generalization of the Jack polynomials.

  1. Quasimomentum distribution and expansion of an anyonic gas (United States)

    Dubček, Tena; Klajn, Bruno; Pezer, Robert; Buljan, Hrvoje; Jukić, Dario


    We point out that the momentum distribution is not a proper observable for a system of anyons in two dimensions. In view of anyons as Wilczek's composite charged flux tubes, this is a consequence of the fact that the orthogonal components of the kinetic momentum operator do not commute at the position of a flux tube, and thus cannot be diagonalized in the same basis. As a substitute for the momentum distribution of an anyonic (spatially localized) state, we propose to use the asymptotic single-particle density after the expansion of anyons in free space from the state. This definition is identical to the standard one when the statistical parameter approaches that for bosons or fermions. Exact examples which underpin our proposal are shown. They reveal that the quasimomentum distribution can be used to identify anyonic statistics in standard time-of-flight measurements.

  2. Phase transitions in a gas of anyons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    MacKenzie, R.; Nebia-Rahal, F.; Paranjape, M. B.; Richer, J.


    We continue our numerical Monte Carlo simulation of a gas of closed loops on a 3 dimensional lattice, however, now in the presence of a topological term added to the action which corresponds to the total linking number between the loops. We compute the linking number using a novel approach employing certain notions from knot theory. Adding the topological term converts the particles into anyons. Interpreting the model as an effective theory that describes the 2+1-dimensional Abelian Higgs model in the asymptotic strong-coupling regime, the topological linking number simply corresponds to the addition to the action of the Chern-Simons term. The system continues to exhibit a phase transition as a function of the vortex mass as it becomes small. We find the following new results. The Chern-Simons term has no effect on the Wilson loop. On the other hand, it does effect the 't Hooft loop of a given configuration, adding the linking number of the 't Hooft loop with all of the dynamical vortex loops. We find the unexpected result that both the Wilson loop and the 't Hooft loop exhibit a perimeter law even though there are no massless particles in the theory, in both phases of the theory. It should be noted that our method suffers from numerical instabilities if the coefficient of the Chern-Simons term is too large; thus, we have restricted our results to small values of this parameter. Furthermore, interpreting the lattice loop gas as an effective theory describing the Abelian Higgs model is only known to be true in the infinite coupling limit; for strong but finite coupling this correspondence is only a conjecture, the validity of which is beyond the scope of this article.

  3. Measurement-only topological quantum computation via anyonic interferometry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Bonderson, Parsa; Freedman, Michael; Nayak, Chetan


    We describe measurement-only topological quantum computation using both projective and interferometrical measurement of topological charge. We demonstrate how anyonic teleportation can be achieved using 'forced measurement' protocols for both types of measurement. Using this, it is shown how topological charge measurements can be used to generate the braiding transformations used in topological quantum computation, and hence that the physical transportation of computational anyons is unnecessary. We give a detailed discussion of the anyonics for implementation of topological quantum computation (particularly, using the measurement-only approach) in fractional quantum Hall systems

  4. Entanglement phases as holographic duals of anyon condensates (United States)

    Duivenvoorden, Kasper; Iqbal, Mohsin; Haegeman, Jutho; Verstraete, Frank; Schuch, Norbert


    Anyon condensation forms a mechanism that allows us to relate different topological phases. We study anyon condensation in the framework of projected entangled pair states (PEPS) where topological order is characterized through local symmetries of the entanglement. We show that anyon condensation is in one-to-one correspondence to the behavior of the virtual entanglement state at the boundary (i.e., the entanglement spectrum) under those symmetries, which encompasses both symmetry breaking and symmetry protected (SPT) order, and we use this to characterize all anyon condensations for Abelian double models through the structure of their entanglement spectrum. We illustrate our findings with the Z4 double model, which can give rise to both toric code and doubled semion order through condensation, distinguished by the SPT structure of their entanglement. Using the ability of our framework to directly measure order parameters for condensation and deconfinement, we numerically study the phase diagram of the model, including direct phase transitions between the doubled semion and the toric code phase, which are not described by anyon condensation.

  5. Thermalization, Error Correction, and Memory Lifetime for Ising Anyon Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Courtney G. Brell


    Full Text Available We consider two-dimensional lattice models that support Ising anyonic excitations and are coupled to a thermal bath. We propose a phenomenological model for the resulting short-time dynamics that includes pair creation, hopping, braiding, and fusion of anyons. By explicitly constructing topological quantum error-correcting codes for this class of system, we use our thermalization model to estimate the lifetime of the quantum information stored in the encoded spaces. To decode and correct errors in these codes, we adapt several existing topological decoders to the non-Abelian setting. We perform large-scale numerical simulations of these two-dimensional Ising anyon systems and find that the thresholds of these models range from 13% to 25%. To our knowledge, these are the first numerical threshold estimates for quantum codes without explicit additive structure.

  6. Magnetic properties of anyonic systems in a normal phase

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Aronov, I.E.; Naftulin, S.A.


    We apply the concept of fractional statistics to the two-dimensional conductors. The effective Lagrangian of an external magnetic field in anyon medium at finite temperature and density is presented. The diamagnetic response to the external field is studied at temperatures above T c (i.e. in the normal phase) for various values of external parameters. Oscillations of both thermodynamic (the de Haas - van Alphen effect) and kinetic (the Shubnikov - de Haas effect) quantities are re-examined. Numerous peculiarities arise from the fact that anyon systems possess a non-zero ''statistical'' flux Φ (which is known to be a manifestation of the spontaneous parity breakdown). The cyclotron resonance is suggested as a direct test on possible parity violation (which is the key point of anyonics). The cyclotron mass dependences on external parameters reported in a series of experimental articles (H. Kublbeck and J.P. Kotthaus, Phys. Rev. Lett. 35, 1019 (1975); G. Abstreiter, J.P. Kotthaus, J.F. Koch and G. Dorda, Phys. Rev. B14, 2480 (1976)) may be attributed to an unusual behaviour or magnetic permeability in anyon medium. (author). 20 refs, 2 figs

  7. Composite Chern-Simons gauge boson in anyon gas

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Nguyen Van Hieu; Nguyen Hung Son.


    It was shown that in a free anyon gas there exists a composite vector gauge field with the effective action containing a Chern-Simons term. The momentum dependence of the energy of the composite boson was found. The mixing between Chern-Simons boson and photon gives rise to the appearance of new quasiparticles - Chern-Simons polaritons. The dispersion equations of Chern-Simons polaritons were derived. (author). 14 refs

  8. Precise analysis of the three-anyon spectrum

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Mashkevich, S.V.


    We find the exact numbers of ''good'' (found analytically) and ''bad'' states in three-anyon problem. It is shown that the relative number of the ''good'' states tends to one third with energy increasing. We produce an outline of the spectrum which reflects correctly the interpolation between bosonic and fermionic states. We carry out a straightforward calculation of the partition function, which reproduces the known results for the third virial coefficient. 22 refs.; 2 figs.; 7 tab. (author)

  9. Two phases of the anyon gas and broken T symmetry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Canright, G.S.; Rojo, A.G.


    This paper reports the first exact finite-temperature study of anyons. The authors' method is an extension to finite T of earlier numerical work with small numbers of anyons on a lattice. We study the spontaneous magnetization M 0 (T), since the signature has been identified as a key signature of broken T symmetry for anyon models. Our results confirm the two-phase picture suggested by earlier work: The authors find a low-temperature regime where M 0 is very small or zero, and a high-temperature regime where M 0 is of O(0.1 μ B ) per particle. In the high-temperature regime the authors can obtain an excellent estimate of M 0 (T) in the thermodynamic limit (which we call M 0 ∞ ). since our finite-size results extrapolate smoothly with little scatter. The authors' values for M 0 ∞ can then be compared with the results of μSR experiments on high-temperature superconductors, which set an upper experimental bound on the internal fields from such moments. The authors find that M 0 ∞ in a bulk material of many planes will almost certainly give a signal well above this threshold if (and only if) the planes are ordered ferromagnetically. In the antiferromagnetic case (which is strongly favored energetically) the signal from M 0 ∞ is probably undetectable. Finally, we estimate the transition temperature T c from our finite-size studies, obtaining a value on the order of a few hundred Kelvins

  10. Semiclassical quantization of integrable systems of few interacting anyons in a strong magnetic field

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Sivan, N.; Levit, S.


    We present a semiclassical theory of charged interacting anyons in a strong magnetic field. We derive the appropriate generalization of the WKB quantization conditions and determine the corresponding wave functions for non separable integrable anyonic systems. This theory is applies to a system of two interacting anyons, two interacting anyons in the presence of an impurity and three interacting anyons. We calculate the dependence of the semiclassical energy levels on the statistical parameter and find regions in which dependence follows very different patterns. The semiclassical treatment allows to find the correlation between these patterns and the change in the character of the classical motion of the system. We also test the accuracy of the mean field approximation for low and high energy states of the three anyons. (author)

  12. Noncommutative Lévy Processes for Generalized (Particularly Anyon) Statistics (United States)

    Bożejko, Marek; Lytvynov, Eugene; Wysoczański, Janusz


    Let {T=R^d} . Let a function {QT^2toC} satisfy {Q(s,t)=overline{Q(t,s)}} and {|Q(s,t)|=1}. A generalized statistics is described by creation operators {partial_t^dagger} and annihilation operators ∂ t , {tin T}, which satisfy the Q-commutation relations: {partial_spartial^dagger_t = Q(s, t)partial^dagger_tpartial_s+δ(s, t)} , {partial_spartial_t = Q(t, s)partial_tpartial_s}, {partial^dagger_spartial^dagger_t = Q(t, s)partial^dagger_tpartial^dagger_s}. From the point of view of physics, the most important case of a generalized statistics is the anyon statistics, for which Q( s, t) is equal to q if s t. Here {qinC} , | q| = 1. We start the paper with a detailed discussion of a Q-Fock space and operators {(partial_t^dagger,partial_t)_{tin T}} in it, which satisfy the Q-commutation relations. Next, we consider a noncommutative stochastic process (white noise) {ω(t)=partial_t^dagger+partial_t+λpartial_t^daggerpartial_t} , {tin T} . Here {λinR} is a fixed parameter. The case λ = 0 corresponds to a Q-analog of Brownian motion, while λ ≠ 0 corresponds to a (centered) Q-Poisson process. We study Q-Hermite ( Q-Charlier respectively) polynomials of infinitely many noncommutatative variables {(ω(t))_{tin T}} . The main aim of the paper is to explain the notion of independence for a generalized statistics, and to derive corresponding Lévy processes. To this end, we recursively define Q-cumulants of a field {(ξ(t))_{tin T}}. This allows us to define a Q-Lévy process as a field {(ξ(t))_{tin T}} whose values at different points of T are Q-independent and which possesses a stationarity of increments (in a certain sense). We present an explicit construction of a Q-Lévy process, and derive a Nualart-Schoutens-type chaotic decomposition for such a process.

  13. String-nets, single and double-stranded quantum loop gases for non-Abelian anyons


    Velenich, Andrea; Chamon, Claudio; Wen, Xiao-Gang


    String-net condensation can give rise to non-Abelian anyons whereas loop condensation usually gives rise to Abelian anyons. It has been proposed that generalized quantum loop gases with non-orthogonal inner products can produce non-Abelian anyons. We detail an exact mapping between the string-net and the generalized loop models and explain how the non-orthogonal products arise. We also introduce a loop model of double-stranded nets where quantum loops with an orthogonal inner product and loca...

  14. Statistically induced topological phase transitions in a one-dimensional superlattice anyon-Hubbard model (United States)

    Zuo, Zheng-Wei; Li, Guo-Ling; Li, Liben


    We theoretically investigate topological properties of the one-dimensional superlattice anyon-Hubbard model, which can be mapped to a superlattice bose-Hubbard model with an occupation-dependent phase factor by fractional Jordan-Wigner transformation. The topological anyon-Mott insulator is identified by topological invariant and edge modes using exact diagonalization and the density matrix renormalization group algorithm. When only the statistical angle is varied and all other parameters are fixed, a statistically induced topological phase transition can be realized, which provides insights into the topological phase transitions. What's more, we give an explanation of the statistically induced topological phase transition. The topological anyon-Mott phases can also appear in a variety of superlattice anyon-Hubbard models.

  15. String-nets, single- and double-stranded quantum loop gases for non-Abelian anyons

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Velenich, Andrea; Chamon, Claudio [Physics Department, Boston University, 590 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215 (United States); Wen Xiaogang, E-mail: velenich@bu.ed [Department of Physics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02215 (United States)


    String-nets and quantum loop gases are two prominent microscopic lattice models to describe topological phases. String-net condensation can give rise to both Abelian and non-Abelian anyons, whereas loop condensation usually produces Abelian anyons. It has been proposed, however, that generalized quantum loop gases with non-orthogonal inner products could support non-Abelian anyons. We detail an exact mapping between the string-net and these generalized loop models and explain how the non-orthogonal products arise. We also introduce an equivalent loop model of double-stranded nets where quantum loops with an orthogonal inner product and local interactions supports non-Abelian Fibonacci anyons. Finally, we emphasize the origin of the sign problem in systems with non-Abelian excitations and its consequences on the complexity of their ground state wavefunctions. (fast track communication)

  19. Anyonic self-induced disorder in a stabilizer code: Quasi many-body localization in a translational invariant model (United States)

    Yarloo, H.; Langari, A.; Vaezi, A.


    We enquire into the quasi many-body localization in topologically ordered states of matter, revolving around the case of Kitaev toric code on the ladder geometry, where different types of anyonic defects carry different masses induced by environmental errors. Our study verifies that the presence of anyons generates a complex energy landscape solely through braiding statistics, which suffices to suppress the diffusion of defects in such clean, multicomponent anyonic liquid. This nonergodic dynamics suggests a promising scenario for investigation of quasi many-body localization. Computing standard diagnostics evidences that a typical initial inhomogeneity of anyons gives birth to a glassy dynamics with an exponentially diverging time scale of the full relaxation. Our results unveil how self-generated disorder ameliorates the vulnerability of topological order away from equilibrium. This setting provides a new platform which paves the way toward impeding logical errors by self-localization of anyons in a generic, high energy state, originated exclusively in their exotic statistics.

  20. An extended anyon Fock space and noncommutative Meixner-type orthogonal polynomials in infinite dimensions (United States)

    Bożejko, M.; Lytvynov, E. W.; Rodionova, I. V.


    Let ν be a finite measure on R whose Laplace transform is analytic in a neighbourhood of zero. An anyon Lévy white noise on ( R^d,dx) is a certain family of noncommuting operators on the anyon Fock space over L^2( R^d× R,dx\\otimesν), where \\varphi=\\varphi(x) runs over a space of test functions on R^d, while ω=ω(x) is interpreted as an operator-valued distribution on R^d. Let L^2(τ) be the noncommutative L^2-space generated by the algebra of polynomials in the variables , where τ is the vacuum expectation state. Noncommutative orthogonal polynomials in L^2(τ) of the form are constructed, where f(n) is a test function on ( R^d)^n, and are then used to derive a unitary isomorphism U between L^2(τ) and an extended anyon Fock space \\mathbf F(L^2( R^d,dx)) over L^2( R^d,dx). The usual anyon Fock space \\mathscr F(L^2( R^d,dx)) over L^2( R^d,dx) is a subspace of \\mathbf F(L^2( R^d,dx)). Furthermore, the equality \\mathbf F(L^2( R^d,dx))=\\mathscr F(L^2( R^d,dx)) holds if and only if the measure ν is concentrated at a single point, that is, in the Gaussian or Poisson case. With use of the unitary isomorphism U, the operators are realized as a Jacobi (that is, tridiagonal) field in \\mathbf F(L^2( R^d,dx)). A Meixner-type class of anyon Lévy white noise is derived for which the corresponding Jacobi field in \\mathbf F(L^2( R^d,dx)) has a relatively simple structure. Each anyon Lévy white noise of Meixner type is characterized by two parameters, λ\\in R and η≥slant0. In conclusion, the representation ω(x)=\\partial_x^\\dag +λ \\partial_x^\\dag\\partialx +η\\partial_x^\\dag\\partial_x\\partial_x+\\partial_x is obtained, where \\partial_x and \\partial_x^\\dag are the annihilation and creation operators at the point x.

  1. Majorana anyons, non-Abelian statistics and quantum computation in Chern-Simons-Higgs theory (United States)

    Marino, E. C.; Brozeguini, J. C.


    We naturally obtain the NOT and CNOT logic gates, which are key pieces of quantum computing algorithms, in the framework of the non-Abelian Chern-Simons-Higgs theory in two spatial dimensions. For that, we consider the anyonic quantum vortex topological excitations and show that Majorana anyons, namely, self-adjoint combinations of these vortices and anti-vortices, have in general non-Abelian statistics. The associated unitary monodromy braiding matrices become the required logic gates in the special case when the vortex spin is s = 1/4, which corresponds to the case of Ising non-Abelian anyons, found in different quantum computing systems. We explicitly construct the vortex field operators, show that they carry both magnetic flux and charge and obtain their Euclidean correlation functions by using the method of quantization of topological excitations, which is based on the order-disorder duality. These correlators are in general multivalued, the number of sheets being determined by the vortex spin. This, by its turn, is proportional to the vacuum expectation value of the Higgs field and therefore can be tuned by both the free parameters of the Higgs potential and the temperature.

  2. FAST TRACK COMMUNICATION: String-nets, single- and double-stranded quantum loop gases for non-Abelian anyons (United States)

    Velenich, Andrea; Chamon, Claudio; Wen, Xiao-Gang


    String-nets and quantum loop gases are two prominent microscopic lattice models to describe topological phases. String-net condensation can give rise to both Abelian and non-Abelian anyons, whereas loop condensation usually produces Abelian anyons. It has been proposed, however, that generalized quantum loop gases with non-orthogonal inner products could support non-Abelian anyons. We detail an exact mapping between the string-net and these generalized loop models and explain how the non-orthogonal products arise. We also introduce an equivalent loop model of double-stranded nets where quantum loops with an orthogonal inner product and local interactions supports non-Abelian Fibonacci anyons. Finally, we emphasize the origin of the sign problem in systems with non-Abelian excitations and its consequences on the complexity of their ground state wavefunctions.

  3. The Free Encyclopaedia that Anyone can Edit: The Shifting Values of Wikipedia Editors

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kim Osman


    Full Text Available Wikipedia is often held up as an example of the potential of the internet to foster open, free and non-commercial collaboration. However such discourses often conflate these values without recognising how they play out in reality in a peer-production community. As Wikipedia is evolving, it is an ideal time to examine these discourses and the tensions that exist between its initial ideals and the reality of commercial activity in the encyclopaedia. Through an analysis of three failed proposals to ban paid advocacy editing in the English language Wikipedia, this paper highlights the shift in values from the early editorial community that forked encyclopaedic content over the threat of commercialisation, to one that today values the freedom that allows anyone to edit the encyclopaedia.

  4. Bethe ansatz solution of an integrable, non-Abelian anyon chain with D(D{sub 3}) symmetry

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Campbell, C.W.; Dancer, K.A.; Isaac, P.S. [Centre for Mathematical Physics, School of Mathematics and Physics, The University of Queensland, 4072 (Australia); Links, J., E-mail: [Centre for Mathematical Physics, School of Mathematics and Physics, The University of Queensland, 4072 (Australia)


    The exact solution for the energy spectrum of a one-dimensional Hamiltonian with local two-site interactions and periodic boundary conditions is determined. The two-site Hamiltonians commute with the symmetry algebra given by the Drinfeld double D(D{sub 3}) of the dihedral group D{sub 3}. As such the model describes local interactions between non-Abelian anyons, with fusion rules given by the tensor product decompositions of the irreducible representations of D(D{sub 3}). The Bethe ansatz equations which characterise the exact solution are found through the use of functional relations satisfied by a set of mutually commuting transfer matrices.

  5. Abelian and non-Abelian anyons in integer quantum anomalous Hall effect and topological phase transitions via superconducting proximity effect (United States)

    Liu, Xuele; Wang, Ziqiang; Xie, X. C.; Yu, Yue


    We study the quantum anomalous Hall effect described by a class of two-component Haldane models on square lattices. We show that the latter can be transformed into a pseudospin triplet p+ip-wave paired superfluid. In the long wavelength limit, the ground-state wave function is described by Halperin’s (1,1,-1) state of neutral fermions analogous to the double-layer quantum Hall effect. The vortex excitations are charge e/2 Abelian anyons which carry a neutral Dirac fermion zero mode. The superconducting proximity effect induces “tunneling” between “layers” which leads to topological phase transitions whereby the Dirac fermion zero mode fractionalizes and Majorana fermions emerge in the edge states. The charge e/2 vortex excitation carrying a Majorana zero mode is a non-Abelian anyon. The proximity effect can also drive a conventional insulator into a quantum anomalous Hall effect state with a Majorana edge mode and the non-Abelian vortex excitations.

  6. Integrable boundary conditions for a non-Abelian anyon chain with D(D{sub 3}) symmetry

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Dancer, K.A.; Finch, P.E.; Isaac, P.S. [The University of Queensland, Centre for Mathematical Physics, School of Physical Sciences, 4072 (Australia); Links, J. [The University of Queensland, Centre for Mathematical Physics, School of Physical Sciences, 4072 (Australia)], E-mail:


    A general formulation of the Boundary Quantum Inverse Scattering Method is given which is applicable in cases where R-matrix solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation do not have the property of crossing unitarity. Suitably modified forms of the reflection equations are presented which permit the construction of a family of commuting transfer matrices. As an example, we apply the formalism to determine the most general solutions of the reflection equations for a solution of the Yang-Baxter equation with underlying symmetry given by the Drinfeld double D(D{sub 3}) of the dihedral group D{sub 3}. This R-matrix does not have the crossing unitarity property. In this manner we derive integrable boundary conditions for an open chain model of interacting non-Abelian anyons.

  7. Nonequilibrium dynamics of one-dimensional hard-core anyons following a quench: complete relaxation of one-body observables. (United States)

    Wright, Tod M; Rigol, Marcos; Davis, Matthew J; Kheruntsyan, Karén V


    We demonstrate the role of interactions in driving the relaxation of an isolated integrable quantum system following a sudden quench. We consider a family of integrable hard-core lattice anyon models that continuously interpolates between noninteracting spinless fermions and strongly interacting hard-core bosons. A generalized Jordan-Wigner transformation maps the entire family to noninteracting fermions. We find that, aside from the singular free-fermion limit, the entire single-particle density matrix and, therefore, all one-body observables relax to the predictions of the generalized Gibbs ensemble (GGE). This demonstrates that, in the presence of interactions, correlations between particles in the many-body wave function provide the effective dissipation required to drive the relaxation of all one-body observables to the GGE. This relaxation does not depend on translational invariance or the tracing out of any spatial domain of the system.

  9. Z n clock models and chains of so(n)2 non-Abelian anyons: symmetries, integrable points and low energy properties (United States)

    Finch, Peter E.; Flohr, Michael; Frahm, Holger


    We study two families of quantum models which have been used previously to investigate the effect of topological symmetries in one-dimensional correlated matter. Various striking similarities are observed between certain {Z}n quantum clock models, spin chains generalizing the Ising model, and chains of non-Abelian anyons constructed from the so(n)2 fusion category for odd n, both subject to periodic boundary conditions. In spite of the differences between these two types of quantum chains, e.g. their Hilbert spaces being spanned by tensor products of local spin states or fusion paths of anyons, the symmetries of the lattice models are shown to be closely related. Furthermore, under a suitable mapping between the parameters describing the interaction between spins and anyons the respective Hamiltonians share part of their energy spectrum (although their degeneracies may differ). This spin-anyon correspondence can be extended by fine-tuning of the coupling constants leading to exactly solvable models. We show that the algebraic structures underlying the integrability of the clock models and the anyon chain are the same. For n  =  3,5,7 we perform an extensive finite size study—both numerical and based on the exact solution—of these models to map out their ground state phase diagram and to identify the effective field theories describing their low energy behaviour. We observe that the continuum limit at the integrable points can be described by rational conformal field theories with extended symmetry algebras which can be related to the discrete ones of the lattice models.

  10. “To Work Just Like Anyone Else”—A Narrative from a Man Aging with Spinal Cord Injury

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ulrica Lundström


    Full Text Available People aging with spinal cord injury (SCI develop medical problems commonly associated with the aging process at a younger age than the general population. However, research about how the life story changes and how meaning will be experienced in occupations is lacking. The aim was to describe and offer an explanation of how a man experienced meaning in everyday occupations while aging with an SCI. Four narrative interviews were performed over a four-year period, with a man in his fifties, who lived with SCI for 39 years. The narrative analysis generated an overall plot, named “To Work Just Like Anyone Else,” and gives a picture of his experiences, thoughts, and reflections about meaning in occupations, from when he became injured to the present, and in relation to his future. His life story is characterized by secondary health complications, and his experiences of negotiating with the aging body and making choices to continue working. Further, how occupational risk factors, e.g., imbalance, alienation, and deprivation, occur as a result of lack of rehabilitation and support from social systems is addressed. Future research should explore how rehabilitation and social systems can support people aging with SCI to experience meaning in everyday occupations and to have balance in everyday life.

    McCaughey, John.


    The deregulated electric power industry in the United States is undergoing a radical change in marketing emphasis more familiar to consumers of branded products such as soft drinks. In attempts to woo customers from other companies, utilities are beginning to market a ''company image'' offering lower prices, better products (i.e. other household services such as telephone and cable television) and improved provision levels of customer services. The price of the product, in this case electric power, has been shown to be much more likely to persuade a consumer to shift supplier than any existing level of customer satisfaction. (UK)

  13. Inspiration, anyone? (Editorial

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lindsay Glynn


    Full Text Available I have to admit that writing an editorial for this issue was a struggle. Trying to sit down and write when the sun was shining outside and most of my colleagues were on vacation was, to say the least, difficult. Add to that research projects and conferences…let’s just say that I found myself less than inspired. A pitiful plea for ideas to a colleague resulted in the reintroduction to a few recent evidence based papers and resources which inspired further searching and reading. Though I generally find myself surrounded (more like buried in research papers and EBLIP literature, somehow I had missed the great strides that have been made of late in the world of evidence based library and information practice. I realize now that I am inspired by the researchers, authors and innovators who are putting EBLIP on the proverbial map. My biggest beef with library literature in general has been the plethora of articles highlighting what we should be doing. Take a close look at the evidence based practitioners in the information professions: these are some of the people who are actively practicing what has been preached for the past few years. Take, for example, the about‐to‐be released Libraries using Evidence Toolkit by Northern Sydney Central Coast Health and The University of Newcastle, Australia (see their announcement in this issue. An impressive advisory group is responsible for maintaining the currency and relevancy of the site as well as promoting the site and acting as a steering committee for related projects. This group is certainly doing more than “talking the talk”: they took their experience at the 3rd International Evidence Based Librarianship Conference and did something with the information they obtained by implementing solutions that worked in their environment. The result? The creation of a collection of tools for all of us to use. This toolkit is just what EBLIP needs: a portal to resources aimed at supporting the information specialists who want to adopt the evidence based model of practice. I have already got it bookmarked and set up an RSS feed. Even before the official toolkit launch, a wealth of information is available on the website including presentations, project and events information, and a blog containing site updates. There has been much discussion on increasing the knowledge base from which to draw evidence for library and information practitioners. Original research needs to be published so that we can use it as evidence to support our decision making. The literature is lacking the significant numbers of publication types widely considered to be the highest level of evidence: systematic reviews, meta‐analyses and randomized controlled trials. This issue of Evidence Based Library and Information Practice proudly boasts both a systematic review/meta‐analysis and a randomized controlled trial. Denise Koufogiannakis and Natasha Wiebe, in their systematic review/meta‐analysis, provide evidence that shows that computer assisted instruction is as effective as traditional instruction for students at an introductory, undergraduate level. Nicola Pearce‐Smith compared the effectiveness of self‐directed, web‐based learning with a classroom‐based, interactive workshop in her randomized controlled trial. I am looking forward to reading and utilizing more and more of these in the future. Another example is even closer to home. I recently attended a strategic planning meeting at my institution where new services and procedures were discussed. Unlike the past, when new initiatives were implemented and later evaluated, all librarians instinctively indicated that the literature should be searched first to see if there was any evidence either for or against changing or adding new services or procedures. The evidence based model of practice is catching on. I know that there are numerous examples of information practitioners taking a proactive role in putting research into practice, and many research papers that are worth mentioning. To highlight them all would be a task much too grand for an editorial. Kudos to all of you, and thanks for the inspiration.

  16. Anyone for non-scalarity?


    Duffley, Patrick; Larrivée, Pierre


    This paper examines the status of scalarity in the analysis of the meaning of the English determiner any. The latter’s position as a prime exemplar of the category of polarity-sensitive items has led it to be generally assumed to have scalar meaning. Scalar effects are absent however from a number of common uses of this word. This suggests that any does not involve scales as part of its core meaning, but produces them as a derived interpretative property. The role of three factors in the deri...

  19. Why should anyone be led by you? (United States)

    Goffee, R; Jones, G


    We all know that leaders need vision and energy, but after an exhaustive review of the most influential theories on leadership--as well as workshops with thousands of leaders and aspiring leaders--the authors learned that great leaders also share four unexpected qualities. The first quality of exceptional leaders is that they selectively reveal their weaknesses (weaknesses, not fatal flaws). Doing so lets employees see that they are approachable. It builds an atmosphere of trust and helps galvanize commitment. The second quality of inspirational leaders is their heavy reliance on intuition to gauge the appropriate timing and course of their actions. Such leaders are good "situation sensors"--they can sense what's going on without having things spelled out for them. Managing employees with "tough empathy" is the third quality of exceptional leadership. Tough empathy means giving people what they need, not what they want. Leaders must empathize passionately and realistically with employees, care intensely about the work they do, and be straightforward with them. The fourth quality of top-notch leaders is that they capitalize on their differences. They use what's unique about themselves to create a social distance and to signal separateness, which in turn motivates employees to perform better. All four qualities are necessary for inspirational leadership, but they cannot be used mechanically; they must be mixed and matched to meet the demands of particular situations. Most important, however, is that the qualities encourage authenticity among leaders. To be a true leader, the authors advise, "Be yourself--more--with skill."

    Börner, Katy


    Maps of physical spaces locate us in the world and help us navigate unfamiliar routes. Maps of topical spaces help us visualize the extent and structure of our collective knowledge; they reveal bursts of activity, pathways of ideas, and borders that beg to be crossed. This book, from the author of Atlas of Science, describes the power of topical maps, providing readers with principles for visualizing knowledge and offering as examples forty large-scale and more than 100 small-scale full-color maps. Today, data literacy is becoming as important as language literacy. Well-designed visualizations can rescue us from a sea of data, helping us to make sense of information, connect ideas, and make better decisions in real time. In Atlas of Knowledge, leading visualization expert Katy Borner makes the case for a systems science approach to science and technology studies and explains different types and levels of analysis. Drawing on fifteen years of teaching and tool development, she introduces a theoretical framewor...

  2. Energy liberalization should not scare anyone

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Slova, K.; Marcan, P.


    In this interview, the Energy commissioner of the European Union, Andris Piebalgs, is aware of the fact that natural monopolies try to hinder market liberalization of the internal market. But he does not see an alternative to opening the market. The European directive clearly stipulates the tasks of the regulator as well as the fact that it has to be independent. The Commission also plans to increase the independence and competencies of the regulator. His some answers are following: the concerns interventions the Slovak cabinet has regarding the situation on the energy market. This issue is about the interests of the citizens as regards prices and the opportunity to create new jobs in the sector. From what I have heard prices in this sector increased dramatically and not all the increases were transparent. If suppliers want to increase their prices they have to be able to justify the increase. In Germany, some cases are already the subject of court cases. It is important that Slovakia keeps full control over the company. We, of course, support the government's aim to obtain full control over the company (Transpetrol). It is important that the state has 100-percent control over the company, not a 100-percent ownership. And whether the Slovak cabinet will achieve this alone or with partners depends on its decisions. But it certainly will need a partner that can get the oil into the pipelines. Europe will lack lack energy sources. Nuclear power stations in Germany are closing down and within two years Slovakia will close down Jaslovske Bohunice. The decommissioning of Jaslovske Bohunice will not result in Slovakia remaining in darkness. Although it will certainly change the supply and demand situation. But I believe that there will be investments in power plants. There are sufficient funds on the market. (authors)

  5. Field operators for anyons and plektons

    Rehren, K.H.


    Given its superselection sectors with non-abelian braid group statistics, we extend the algebra A of local observables into an algebra F containing localized intertwiner fields which carry the superselection charges. The construction of the inner degrees of freedom, as well as the study of their transformation properties (quantum symmetry), are entirely in terms of the superselection structure of the observables. As a novel and characteristic feature for braid group statistics, Clebsch-Gordan and commutation 'coefficients' generically take values in the algebra M of symmetry operators, much as it is the case with quasi-Hopf symmetry. A, F, and M are all C * algebras, i.e. represented by bounded operators on a Hilbert space with positive metric. (orig.)

  11. Integrability in three dimensions: Algebraic Bethe ansatz for anyonic models

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sh. Khachatryan


    Full Text Available We extend basic properties of two dimensional integrable models within the Algebraic Bethe Ansatz approach to 2+1 dimensions and formulate the sufficient conditions for the commutativity of transfer matrices of different spectral parameters, in analogy with Yang–Baxter or tetrahedron equations. The basic ingredient of our models is the R-matrix, which describes the scattering of a pair of particles over another pair of particles, the quark-anti-quark (meson scattering on another quark-anti-quark state. We show that the Kitaev model belongs to this class of models and its R-matrix fulfills well-defined equations for integrability.

  12. Piscicides and invertebrates: after 70 years, does anyone really know? (United States)

    Vinson, M.R.; Dinger, E.C.; Vinson, D.K.


    The piscicides rotenone and antimycin have been used for more than 70 years to manage fish populations by eliminating undesirable fish species. The effects of piscicides on aquatic invertebrate assemblages are considered negligible by some and significant by others. This difference of opinion has created contentious situations and delayed native fish restoration projects. We review the scientific evidence and report that short-term ( 1 year) impacts are largely unknown. Recovery of invertebrate assemblages following treatments ranged from a few months for abundances of common taxa to several years for rarer taxa. Variation in reported effects was primarily due to natural variation among species and habitats and a lack of adequate pre- and post-treatment sampling which prevents determining the true impacts to invertebrate assemblages. The factors most likely to influence impacts and recovery of aquatic invertebrate assemblages following piscicide treatments are: (1) concentration, duration, and breadth of the piscicide treatment; (2) invertebrate morphology and life history characteristics, including surface area to volume ratios, type of respiration organs, generation time, and propensity to disperse; (3) refugia presence; and (4) distance from colonization sources.

  15. Waiting for surgery: is waiting bad for anyone or everyone? (United States)

    Sutherland, J M; Liu, G; Crump, R T; Karimuddin, A A


    For Canadians, as in many countries, waiting for elective surgery is expected. The duration of the wait raises questions about the maximum amount of time patients should wait for their surgery. The primary objective of this study was to test for a relationship between the length of time patients waited for elective hernia repair surgery and change in patients' self-reported health. This study was based on a prospectively recruited longitudinal cohort of patients waiting for elective hernia repair surgery. Participants completed the PHQ-9, PEG, EQ-5D(3L) generic instruments, and the condition-specific COMI-hernia. Multivariate regression models explored associations between patient-reported outcomes and potential confounders, including age, sex, socio-economic status, and medical comorbidities. There were 118 participants and the modal age group was 61-70 years. The average wait time for participants was 22.5 weeks. There were no relationships between the duration of participants' wait for hernia repair and the change in patients' self-reported health for hernia-specific outcomes or overall health-related quality of life. There are gains in health-related quality of life to be realized by prioritizing symptomatic patients. Participants with greater pre-operative depression, pain, and hernia-related symptoms experienced an improvement in health prior to surgery, though more clarity is needed on the mechanisms that led to improved health. Many countries face problems with wait lists for elective surgery-and few have effective processes for triaging patients. This study shows that duration of time on the wait list was not associated with change in hernia patients' self-reported health.

  20. Authenticity Anyone? The Enhancement of Emotions via Neuro-Psychopharmacology. (United States)

    Kraemer, Felicitas


    This article will examine how the notion of emotional authenticity is intertwined with the notions of naturalness and artificiality in the context of the recent debates about 'neuro-enhancement' and 'neuro-psychopharmacology.' In the philosophy of mind, the concept of authenticity plays a key role in the discussion of the emotions. There is a widely held intuition that an artificial means will always lead to an inauthentic result. This article, however, proposes that artificial substances do not necessarily result in inauthentic emotions. The literature provided by the philosophy of mind on this subject usually resorts to thought experiments. On the other hand, the recent literature in applied ethics on 'enhancement' provides good reasons to include real world examples. Such case studies reveal that some psychotropic drugs such as antidepressants actually cause people to undergo experiences of authenticity, making them feel 'like themselves' for the first time in their lives. Beginning with these accounts, this article suggests three non-naturalist standards for emotions: the authenticity standard, the rationality standard, and the coherence standard. It argues that the authenticity standard is not always the only valid one, but that the other two ways of assessing emotions are also valid, and that they can even have repercussions on the felt authenticity of emotions. In conclusion, it sketches some of the normative implications if not ethical intricacies that accompany the enhancement of emotions.

  2. What exactly is Universal Grammar, and has anyone seen it? (United States)

    Dąbrowska, Ewa


    Universal Grammar (UG) is a suspect concept. There is little agreement on what exactly is in it; and the empirical evidence for it is very weak. This paper critically examines a variety of arguments that have been put forward as evidence for UG, focussing on the three most powerful ones: universality (all human languages share a number of properties), convergence (all language learners converge on the same grammar in spite of the fact that they are exposed to different input), and poverty of the stimulus (children know things about language which they could not have learned from the input available to them). I argue that these arguments are based on premises which are either false or unsubstantiated. Languages differ from each other in profound ways, and there are very few true universals, so the fundamental crosslinguistic fact that needs explaining is diversity, not universality. A number of recent studies have demonstrated the existence of considerable differences in adult native speakers' knowledge of the grammar of their language, including aspects of inflectional morphology, passives, quantifiers, and a variety of more complex constructions, so learners do not in fact converge on the same grammar. Finally, the poverty of the stimulus argument presupposes that children acquire linguistic representations of the kind postulated by generative grammarians; constructionist grammars such as those proposed by Tomasello, Goldberg and others can be learned from the input. We are the only species that has language, so there must be something unique about humans that makes language learning possible. The extent of crosslinguistic diversity and the considerable individual differences in the rate, style and outcome of acquisition suggest that it is more promising to think in terms of a language-making capacity, i.e., a set of domain-general abilities, rather than an innate body of knowledge about the structural properties of the target system.

  7. Primary maths anyone can feed skittles to sharks

    CERN Document Server

    Tiley-Nunn, Nick


    Primary maths is stereotypically loved by a few hairy oddballs, tolerated by most sane primary practitioners; loathed by many. With the right approach, however; the right mindset and sense of the impossible being achievable, maths can be moulded into the diamond in the rough of the primary curriculum. Enter Nick Tiley-Nunn: Britain's most imaginative, most exciting primary maths specialist. Over years of practice he has generated ideas about the teaching of maths that are so distinct, so far out and so utterly brilliant that any primary teacher struggling to grasp the nettle of teaching long division will emerge from communing with his ideas not just with some clichéd sense that ‘maths can be fun', but that it can be brilliant, life-enhancing and truly hilarious. This book presents ideas for primary maths teaching so wildly creative and so full of the joy of life that any classroom of kids will be grateful you read it.

  8. Differential regularization of a non-relativistic anyon model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Freedman, D.Z.; Rius, N.


    Differential regularization is applied to a field theory of a non-relativistic charged boson field φ with λ(φ * φ) 2 self-interaction and coupling to a statistics-changing 0(1) Chern-Simons gauge field. Renormalized configuration-space amplitudes for all diagrams contributing to the φ * φ * φφ 4-point function, which is the only primitively divergent Green's function, are obtained up to 3-loop order. The renormalization group equations are explicitly checked, and the scheme dependence of the β-function is investigated. If the renormalization scheme is fixed to agree with a previous 1-loop calculation, the 2- and 3-loop contributions to β(λ, e) vanish, and β(λ, ε) itself vanishes when the ''self-dual'' condition relating λ to the gauge coupling e is imposed.

  9. Can Anyone Hear Me? Does Anyone See Me? A Qualitative Meta-Analysis of Women's Experiences of Heart Disease. (United States)

    Galick, Aimee; D'Arrigo-Patrick, Elizabeth; Knudson-Martin, Carmen


    Female heart patients are underdiagnosed and undertreated. The purpose of this qualitative meta-data-analysis was to explain how societal expectations related to gender and the treatment environment influence women's experiences and can inform optimal care. The authors used grounded theory methodology and a social constructionist gender lens to analyze 43 studies (1993-2012) of women's experiences of heart disease. The analysis illustrates how social expectations within both medical and relational contexts led to women experiencing barriers to diagnosis and treatment and inadvertent minimization of their experience and knowledge. Women's descriptions of their experiences suggest three kinds of health care strategies that have the potential to increase women's engagement with heart disease treatment and rehabilitation: (a) support give and take in relational connections, (b) identify and acknowledge unique health-promoting behavior, and (c) focus on empowerment. These findings have interdisciplinary implications for practice with women with heart disease. © The Author(s) 2015.

  10. The other side of the world. Why does anyone care about sustainability? (United States)

    Sachs, A


    This essay contains the reflections of a North American on his first trip to India. As the author was squeezed into the second-class compartment of a train, he discovered that India seems to operate under a different logic than he had been trained to adopt. He was dismayed by the fact that some fellow travelers were apparently used to the severely overcrowded conditions, and then he realized that these travelers held an entirely different perspective about what constituted "overcrowding." The overcrowding made him think that the world is too small; the cultural differences made him think it is too big. In Bombay, amidst a teeming population vortex, he experienced the unbelievable coincidence of having his travel companion's father accidentally find them among the crowd. This coincidence gave the traveler an ecological sense of coherence and attachment to the global community and to India. On another train ride, the traveler noticed that the passengers left their food scraps under their seats or tossed them out of the windows. His travel companion explained that the scraps were left deliberately for the children who sweep the train and that scavengers would take care of the rest. This made the traveler understand that, while it does need a better sanitation system, India does not need a Western-style system. A trip to Kerala revealed that a long tradition of cultural diversity allowed the state to achieve unprecedented social and environmental successes. The traveler concluded from his experiences that his desire for solidarity in India may reflect the fundamental task of the environmental movement.

  11. Policy Brief: India's coal reserves are vastly overstated. Is anyone listening?

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Batra, R.K.; Chand, S.K.


    In India's energy sector, coal accounts for over 50% of primary commercial energy supply. With the economy poised to grow at the rate of 8-10% per annum, energy requirements will also rise at a level of 6% (approx.). Coal will continue to be a dominant commercial fuel two decades from now and beyond, despite our nuclear energy programme, development of natural gas supplies, increased hydropower generation, and emphasis on renewables. There are many issues with regard to domestic coal production, including its quality, beneficiation of lower grades, transportation to distant consumers, environment impacts (both in mining and burning of coal), efficiency of thermal power plants, and so on. This policy brief, however, focuses on our domestic coal inventories. In other words, how much coal is there underground, how much of it can be extracted, how much do we need to import, and what are the associated energy security implications?.

    Individuals lacking scientific training have made important contributions in many disciplines historically, but the role and value of public participation in modern professional research is controversial within the scientific community. Beneficially, citizen scientists provide a source of labor, a variety of skills, and capital. This link between the public and research serves as a bridge between science and education, creating a more environmentally informed populace. Through a survey of par...

  17. 'She's a professional like anyone else': social identity among Brazilian sex workers. (United States)

    Murray, Laura R; Lippman, Sheri A; Donini, Angela A; Kerrigan, Deanna


    Community mobilisation among sex workers is recognised as an important HIV/STI prevention strategy. However, factors such as poverty and stigma often negatively influence participation in activities that attempt to mobilise around a common identity of 'sex workers'. A qualitative study was conducted to explore the relationship between social identity and participation among 24 sex workers enrolled in an HIV/STI prevention intervention research project with a community mobilisation component. The relationship between social identity and participation was found to be a dynamic process in which participation in project clinic and community-based activities was motivated by three overlapping strategies: participation for psycho-social and health benefits; participation to improve individual status; and participation to change group status. Rather than mobilising around a 'sex worker identity', we conclude that projects with a community mobilisation approach may be more effective if they facilitate space for critical self-reflection and opportunities for collective action with an emphasis on acceptance and solidarity.

    Full Text Available The book is a comprehensive guide for those who would liketo design their own web-based instructional materials. It isnot a scholarly work discussing theoretical issues or resultsof scientific research. It is written for practitioners who needadvice in their design efforts. Thus, the author suggests thatthe user should not read the book in the conventional senseof starting with the first page and continuing toward theend. Instead, the user should get advice from relatedsections while his/her design matures. The book does notrequire a lot of technical expertise about programming,because basic web skills are enough to understand theissues of web-based training as presented in relevantchapters of the book.The book comprises of fourteen chapters. Besides, there is aQuestion and Answer section at the beginning as well as areference list and an index at the end. In the Q&A section, the author asks some questions on behalf of the reader and answers them in a personal language. These questions help the reader understand what the book is all about and how to use it strategically. The reference list includes 145 references of books, articles, papers, and reports. They are very useful resources for those who are interested in web-based training. The index is highlycomprehensive in scope and it covers almost all the related concepts regarding the design of web-based learning. It serves as a kind of glossary of relevant terms.

  19. Non-abelian anyons and topological quantum information processing in 1D wire networks (United States)

    Alicea, Jason


    Topological quantum computation provides an elegant solution to decoherence, circumventing this infamous problem at the hardware level. The most basic requirement in this approach is the ability to stabilize and manipulate particles exhibiting non-Abelian exchange statistics -- Majorana fermions being the simplest example. Curiously, Majorana fermions have been predicted to arise both in 2D systems, where non-Abelian statistics is well established, and in 1D, where exchange statistics of any type is ill-defined. An important question then arises: do Majorana fermions in 1D hold the same technological promise as their 2D counterparts? In this talk I will answer this question in the affirmative, describing how one can indeed manipulate and harness the non-Abelian statistics of Majoranas in a remarkably simple fashion using networks formed by quantum wires or topological insulator edges.

  1. Economic benefits or drivers of a ‘One Health’ approach: Why should anyone invest?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jonathan Rushton


    The paper concludes that One Health approaches are applicable in many scenarios. However, the costs of getting people from different disciplines to work together in order to achieve a true One Health approach can be large. To generate tangible benefits requires careful management of specialist skills, knowledge and equipment, which can only be achieved by a greater openness of the human and animal health disciplines. Without this openness, policy makers will continue to doubt the real value of One Health. In summary the future success of One Health is about people working in the research, education and provision of health systems around the world embracing and managing change more effectively.

  5. Communicating with first year students; so many channels but is anyone listening? A Practice Report

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jason Lodge


    Full Text Available Communicating with first year students has become a far more complex prospect in the digital age. There is a lot of competition for limited attentional resources from media sources in almost endless channels. Getting important messages to students when there is so much competing information is a difficult prospect for academic and professional divisions of the university alike. Students’ preferences for these communication channels are not well understood and are constantly changing with the introduction of new technology. A first year group was surveyed about their use and preference for various sources of information. Students were generally positive about the use of social networking and other new online media but strongly preferred more established channels for official academic and administrative information. A discussion of the findings and recommendations follows.

  15. Tobacco Industry Research on Nicotine Replacement Therapy: "If Anyone Is Going to Take Away Our Business It Should Be Us". (United States)

    Apollonio, Dorie; Glantz, Stanton A


    Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is recommended for tobacco cessation on the basis of pharmaceutical industry research showing its effectiveness when combined with counseling. The tobacco industry opposed NRT when it first appeared in the 1980s but by 2016 was marketing its own NRT products. We used internal tobacco industry documents dated 1960 through 2010 to identify the industry's perceptions of NRT. As early as the 1950s, tobacco companies developed nonsmoked nicotine replacements for cigarettes, but they stopped out of concern that marketing such products would trigger Food and Drug Administration regulation of cigarettes. In the 1990s, after pharmaceutical companies began selling prescription NRT, tobacco companies found that many smokers used NRT to supplement smoking rather than to quit. In 2009, once the Food and Drug Administration began regulating tobacco, tobacco companies restarted their plans to capture the nicotine market. Although the tobacco industry initially viewed NRT as a threat, it found that smokers often combined NRT with smoking rather than using it as a replacement and began marketing their own NRT products.

  16. Time course of recovery of erectile function after radical retropubic prostatectomy: does anyone recover after 2 years? (United States)

    Rabbani, Farhang; Schiff, Jeffrey; Piecuch, Michael; Yunis, Luis Herran; Eastham, James A; Scardino, Peter T; Mulhall, John P


    Given the paucity of literature on the time course of recovery of erectile function (EF) after radical prostatectomy (RP), many publications have led patients and clinicians to believe that erections are unlikely to recover beyond 2 years after RP. We sought to determine the time course of recovery of EF beyond 2 years after bilateral nerve sparing (BNS) RP and to determine factors predictive of continued improved recovery beyond 2 years. EF was assessed prospectively on a 5-point scale: (i) full erections; (ii) diminished erections routinely sufficient for intercourse; (iii) partial erections occasionally satisfactory for intercourse; (iv) partial erections unsatisfactory for intercourse; and (v) no erections. From 01/1999 to 01/2007, 136 preoperatively potent (levels 1-2) men who underwent BNS RP without prior treatment and who had not recovered consistently functional erections (levels 1-2) at 24 months had further follow-up regarding EF. Median follow-up after the 2-year visit was 36.0 months. Recovery of improved erections at a later date: recovery of EF level 1-2 in those with level 3 EF at 2 years and recovery of EF level 1-3 in those with level 4-5 EF at 2 years. The actuarial rates of further improved recovery of EF to level 1-2 in those with level 3 EF at 2 years and to level 1-3 in those with level 4-5 EF at 2 years were 8%, 20%, and 23% at 3, 4, and 5 years postoperatively, and 5%, 17%, and 21% at 3, 4, and 5 years postoperatively, respectively. Younger age was predictive of greater likelihood of recovery beyond 2 years. There is continued improvement in EF beyond 2 years after BNS RP. Discussion of this prolonged time course of recovery may allow patients to have a more realistic expectation. © 2010 International Society for Sexual Medicine.

  17. Accelerating target discovery using pre-competitive open science-patients need faster innovation more than anyone else. (United States)

    Low, Eric; Bountra, Chas; Lee, Wen Hwa


    We are experiencing a new era enabled by unencumbered access to high quality data through the emergence of open science initiatives in the historically challenging area of early stage drug discovery. At the same time, many patient-centric organisations are taking matters into their own hands by participating in, enabling and funding research. Here we present the rationale behind the innovative partnership between the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC)-an open, pre-competitive pre-clinical research consortium and the research-focused patient organisation Myeloma UK to create a new, comprehensive platform to accelerate the discovery and development of new treatments for multiple myeloma.

  18. “Hello, HELLO! Anyone there? - on the need to assess the tsunami risk to global submarine telecommunications infrastructure (United States)

    Dominey-Howes, D.; Goff, J. R.


    National economies are increasingly dependent on the global telecommunications system - and in particular, its submarine cable infrastructure. Submarine cable traffic represents about 30% of global GDP so the cost of losing, or even simply slowing, communications traffic is high. Many natural hazards are capable of damaging and destroying this infrastructure but tsunamis are the most significant threat, particularly in waters >1000 m deep. Submarine cables and their shore-based infrastructure (the anchor points), are at risk from direct and indirect tsunami-related effects. During the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami in India and Indonesia, cables were broken (direct effect) as the tsunami eroded supporting sediments, and were further damaged by floating/submerged objects and intense nearshore currents. Shore-based infrastructure was also directly damaged in India, Indonesia, and the Maldives. The 1929 Grand Banks earthquake generated a submarine landslide and tsunami off Newfoundland which broke 12 submarine telegraph cables. In 2006, an earthquake in Taiwan generated submarine landslides and a tsunami. These landslides caused one of the largest disruptions of modern telecommunications history when nine cables in the Strait of Luzon were broken disabling vital connections between SE Asia and the rest of the world. Although electronic traffic in and out of Australia was slowed, it did not cease because >70% of our traffic is routed via cables that pass through Hawaii. This is extremely significant because Hawaii is an internationally recognised bottleneck or “choke point” in the global telecommunications network. The fact that Hawaii is a choke point is important because it is regularly affected by numerous large magnitude natural hazards. Any damage to the submarine telecommunications infrastructure routed through Hawaii could result in significant impacts on the electronic flow of data and voice traffic, negatively affecting dependent economies such as Australia. Other choke points exist globally, many in high hazards regions. We propose that proper risk assessments be undertaken at all bottlenecks in the global telecommunications system affected by natural hazards (such as tsunami). We use Hawaii as an example of the sort of research that should be undertaken.

  19. If we share data, will anyone use them? Data sharing and reuse in the long tail of science and technology. (United States)

    Wallis, Jillian C; Rolando, Elizabeth; Borgman, Christine L


    Research on practices to share and reuse data will inform the design of infrastructure to support data collection, management, and discovery in the long tail of science and technology. These are research domains in which data tend to be local in character, minimally structured, and minimally documented. We report on a ten-year study of the Center for Embedded Network Sensing (CENS), a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center. We found that CENS researchers are willing to share their data, but few are asked to do so, and in only a few domain areas do their funders or journals require them to deposit data. Few repositories exist to accept data in CENS research areas.. Data sharing tends to occur only through interpersonal exchanges. CENS researchers obtain data from repositories, and occasionally from registries and individuals, to provide context, calibration, or other forms of background for their studies. Neither CENS researchers nor those who request access to CENS data appear to use external data for primary research questions or for replication of studies. CENS researchers are willing to share data if they receive credit and retain first rights to publish their results. Practices of releasing, sharing, and reusing of data in CENS reaffirm the gift culture of scholarship, in which goods are bartered between trusted colleagues rather than treated as commodities.

  20. Does anyone need help? Age and gender effects on children’s ability to recognize need-of-help

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Margarita eStolarova


    Full Text Available The exploratory study presented here examines children’s ability to recognize another person’s need-of-help. This social perception process necessarily precedes the decision to actively help others. Fifty-eight children aged between five and 13 completed three experimental paradigms. They were asked to look at black-and-white drawings and to indicate which ones showed somebody in need of help. A control task requiring children to differentiate between pictures of humans and birds measured general categorization abilities. This experimental design enabled us to consider confounding effects of children’s developmental status and motivation and to distinguish them from specific need-of-help recognition abilities. As gender and age have been shown to influence social perception as well as helping behavior, we explored whether these factors also have an impact on need-of-help recognition. Children’s response accuracies and response times were analyzed. We observed clearly higher accuracy rates for younger girls compared to younger boys specifically in the need-of-help recognition tasks. For boys, an age-related performance improvement was found. Younger girls performed at a similarly high level as older girls and boys. No gender differences were observed for children aged over nine. This report provides first evidence that the developmental trajectory of children’s ability to recognize another person’s need-of-help differs for girls and boys.

  2. Never Trust Anyone Over 30: Mitigation Strategies for Adapting to Three Decades of Persistent Degassing at Kīlauea Volcano, Hawai'i (United States)

    Elias, T.; Sutton, A. J.; Tam, E.; Businger, S.; Horton, K. A.; Ley, D.; Petrie, L.


    As Kīlauea Volcano approaches its 33rd year of nearly continuous activity, simultaneous summit and rift eruptions continue to challenge island populations, agriculture, and infrastructure with elevated levels of acidic gases and particles. In 2008, the opening of a new summit vent attended a ten- to one hundred- fold increase in SO2 summit emissions which, combined with the ongoing east rift emissions, resulted in the highest combined annual SO2 release since regular measurements began in 1979. While the overall emissions have decreased in a step-wise manner since 2008, this large local source still contributes 20-60% of the SO2 emitted by all stationary fuel combustion sources in the U.S., and ~ 7-20% of the estimated time-averaged annual global volcanogenic SO2 contribution. Research on the long-term health and environmental effects of chronic exposure to volcanic pollution is ongoing in Hawai'i. Public health statistics suggest that incidences of respiratory emergency increased coincident with the onset of the summit eruption. From 2008-2011, Hawaii County received a Disaster Designation by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture due to agricultural losses from the effects of volcanic emissions. A multifaceted approach is being used to address the current gas and particle hazards and to mitigate the impacts to affected areas. Multi-agency websites are providing forecast and real-time data regarding acid particle and SO2 gas concentrations to help people minimize their exposures. The short-term concentration data is linked to color-coded health-advisory levels developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Hawaii State Department of Health, with input from the National Park Service and the U.S. Geological Survey. Questions remain, however, on the appropriateness of the designated advisory levels for protecting chronically exposed populations, and if these tools are sufficiently useful to Hawai'i residents and visitors. Other mitigation efforts include community-based health interventions, indoor engineering controls, and innovations and relief programs within the agricultural sector.

  3. Don't trust anyone over 30: parental legitimacy as a mediator between parenting style and changes in delinquent behavior over time. (United States)

    Trinkner, Rick; Cohn, Ellen S; Rebellon, Cesar J; Van Gundy, Karen


    Both law and society scholars and developmental psychologists have focused on the legitimacy of authority figures, although in different domains (police versus parents). The purpose of the current research is to bridge these two fields by examining the relations among parenting style (i.e., authoritarian, authoritative, permissive), the perception of parental legitimacy, and changes in delinquency over time. It is hypothesized that parental legitimacy mediates the relation between parenting style and future delinquent behavior. Middle school and high school students completed questionnaires three times over a period of 18 months. Parenting style and delinquent behavior were measured at time 1, parental legitimacy at time 2, and delinquency again at time 3. The results show that authoritative parenting was positively related to parental legitimacy, while authoritarian parenting was negatively associated with parental legitimacy. Furthermore, parental legitimacy was negatively associated with future delinquency. Structural equation modeling indicated that parental legitimacy mediated the relation between parenting styles and changes in delinquency over the 18-month time period. The implications for parenting style and parental legitimacy affecting delinquent behavior are discussed. Copyright © 2011 The Foundation for Professionals in Services for Adolescents.

    Full Text Available The text is an approach to the methodological blind spot that exists in art theory when adressing the affective dimension. We also propose that the trauma becomes a part of the affective language and an operational category that allows the problematization of the par inaffective-asubjective, as well as the intersection between memory and voice. We speculate about it through Samuel Beckett´s Not I and Theresa Hak Kyung Cha´s Aveugle Voix.

  5. "Just as Canadian as Anyone Else"? Experiences of Second-Class Citizenship and the Mental Health of Young Immigrant and Refugee Men in Canada. (United States)

    Hilario, Carla T; Oliffe, John L; Wong, Josephine P; Browne, Annette J; Johnson, Joy L


    In recent years, the experiences of immigrant and refugee young men have drawn attention worldwide. Human-induced environmental disasters, local and global conflicts, and increasingly inequitable distributions of wealth have shaped transnational migration patterns. Canada is home to a large immigrant and refugee population, particularly in its urban areas, and supporting the mental health and well-being of these communities is of critical importance. The aim of this article is to report findings from a qualitative study on the social context of mental health among immigrant and refugee young men, with a focus on their migration and resettlement experiences. Informed by the conceptual lens of social context, a thematic narrative analysis approach was used to examine qualitative data from individual and group interviews with 33 young men (age 15 to 22 years) self-identified as immigrants or refugees and were living in Greater Vancouver, western Canada. Three thematic narratives were identified: a better life, living the (immigrant) dream, and starting again from way below. The narratives characterized the social context for immigrant and refugee young men and were connected by a central theme of negotiating second-class citizenship. Implications include the need for mental health frameworks that address marginalization and take into account the contexts and discourses that shape the mental health of immigrant and refugee populations in Canada and worldwide.

  8. Is anyone around me using condoms? Site-specific condom-use norms and their potential impact on condomless sex across various gay venues and websites in The Netherlands. (United States)

    van den Boom, Wijnand; Stolte, Ineke G; Roggen, Astrid; Sandfort, Theo; Prins, Maria; Davidovich, Udi


    To investigate site-specific condom-use norms as assumed by visitors of gay venues and websites across The Netherlands and their association with men's own use of condoms. In 2010, men who have sex with men (MSM) visiting 18 sex venues (e.g., saunas), 30 nonsex venues (e.g., bars), 6 dating websites, and 2 social network websites completed an on-site questionnaire measuring 2 site-specific norms concerning anal sex: descriptive (assumed condom use of others at venue or website) and injunctive (assumed approval of condom use by others at venue or website). We measured the association between assumed descriptive norms and own use of condoms using logistic regression. Among 2,376 participants (median age = 30 years; IQR = 22-43), 62% (n = 1,483) assumed that other visitors would not use condoms. Among men self-reporting on their own use of condoms, 22% (318/1,421) reported condomless anal sex. Men at nonsex venues assumed other visitors would use condoms more often and approved of using them more often compared to men at sex venues. At all sites (venues/websites), men who assumed that others did not use condoms were more likely to have condomless sex themselves. At gay sites across The Netherlands, more than half of MSM believed visitors of these sites would not use condoms during anal sex. The perception that others would not use condoms was associated with less own condom use. HIV prevention should address problematic on-site condom-use norms, as they play a role in influencing sexual behavior between men that meet at these sites. (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved).

  10. Parafermionic wires at the interface of chiral topological states (United States)

    Santos, Luiz; Hughes, Taylor

    We discuss a scenario where local interactions form one-dimensional gapped interfaces between a pair of distinct chiral two-dimensional topological states such that each gapped region terminates at a domain wall separating the chiral gapless edge states of these phases. We show that this type of T-junction supports point-like fractionalized excitations obeying parafermion statistics, thus implying that the one-dimensional gapped interface forms an effective topological parafermionic wire possessing a non-trivial ground state degeneracy. The physical properties of the anyon condensate that gives rise to the gapped interface are investigated. Remarkably, this condensate causes the gapped interface to behave as a type of anyon ``Andreev reflector'' in the bulk, whereby anyons from one phase, upon hitting the interface, can be transformed into a combination of reflected anyons and outgoing anyons from the other phase. Thus, we conclude that while different topological orders can be connected via gapped interfaces, the interfaces are themselves topological.

  10. Some Aspects of Mathematical and Physical Approaches for Topological Quantum Computation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    V. Kantser


    Full Text Available A paradigm to build a quantum computer, based on topological invariants is highlighted. The identities in the ensemble of knots, links and braids originally discovered in relation to topological quantum field theory are shown: how they define Artin braid group -- the mathematical basis of topological quantum computation (TQC. Vector spaces of TQC correspond to associated strings of particle interactions, and TQC operates its calculations on braided strings of special physical quasiparticles -- anyons -- with non-Abelian statistics. The physical platform of TQC is to use the topological quantum numbers of such small groups of anyons as qubits and to perform operations on these qubits by exchanging the anyons, both within the groups that form the qubits and, for multi-qubit gates, between groups. By braiding two or more anyons, they acquire up a topological phase or Berry phase similar to that found in the Aharonov-Bohm effect. Topological matter such as fractional quantum Hall systems and novel discovered topological insulators open the way to form system of anyons -- Majorana fermions -- with the unique property of encoding and processing quantum information in a naturally fault-tolerant way. In the topological insulators, due to its fundamental attribute of topological surface state occurrence of the bound, Majorana fermions are generated at its heterocontact with superconductors. One of the key operations of TQC -- braiding of non-Abelian anyons: it is illustrated how it can be implemented in one-dimensional topological isolator wire networks.

  11. Error Correction for Non-Abelian Topological Quantum Computation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    James R. Wootton


    Full Text Available The possibility of quantum computation using non-Abelian anyons has been considered for over a decade. However, the question of how to obtain and process information about what errors have occurred in order to negate their effects has not yet been considered. This is in stark contrast with quantum computation proposals for Abelian anyons, for which decoding algorithms have been tailor-made for many topological error-correcting codes and error models. Here, we address this issue by considering the properties of non-Abelian error correction, in general. We also choose a specific anyon model and error model to probe the problem in more detail. The anyon model is the charge submodel of D(S_{3}. This shares many properties with important models such as the Fibonacci anyons, making our method more generally applicable. The error model is a straightforward generalization of those used in the case of Abelian anyons for initial benchmarking of error correction methods. It is found that error correction is possible under a threshold value of 7% for the total probability of an error on each physical spin. This is remarkably comparable with the thresholds for Abelian models.

  12. Topological qubit design and leakage

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ainsworth, R; Slingerland, J K, E-mail:, E-mail: [Department of Mathematical Physics, National University of Ireland Maynooth, Co. Kildare (Ireland)


    We examine how best to design qubits for use in topological quantum computation. These qubits are topological Hilbert spaces associated with small groups of anyons. Operations are performed on these by exchanging the anyons. One might argue that in order to have as many simple single-qubit operations as possible, the number of anyons per group should be maximized. However, we show that there is a maximal number of particles per qubit, namely 4, and more generally a maximal number of particles for qudits of dimension d. We also look at the possibility of having topological qubits for which one can perform two-qubit gates without leakage into non-computational states. It turns out that the requirement that all two-qubit gates are leakage free is very restrictive and this property can only be realized for two-qubit systems related to Ising-like anyon models, which do not allow for universal quantum computation by braiding. Our results follow directly from the representation theory of braid groups, which implies that they are valid for all anyon models. We also make some remarks about generalizations to other exchange groups.

    , but this also means that anyone can introduce errors into documents, either by accident or on purpose. A security model for wiki-style authoring systems, called the Secure Wiki Model, has previously been proposed to address this problem. This model is designed to prevent corruption of good quality documents......Wiki systems form a subclass of the more general Open Collaborative Authoring Systems, where content is created by a user community. The ability of anyone to edit the content is, at the same time, their strength and their weakness. Anyone can write documents that improve the value of the wiki-system......, by limiting updates, to such documents, to users who have demonstrated their ability to produce documents of similar or better quality. While this security model prevents all user from editing all documents, it does respect the wiki philosophy by allowing any author who has produced documents of a certain...

  14. Braiding light quanta (United States)

    Iadecola, Thomas; Schuster, Thomas; Chamon, Claudio

    The possibility that anyons -- quantum particles other than fermions or bosons -- can emerge in condensed matter systems has motivated generations of physicists. In addition to being of fundamental scientific importance, so-called non-Abelian anyons are particularly sought-after for potential applications to quantum computing. However, experimental evidence of anyons in electronic systems remains inconclusive. We propose to demonstrate non-Abelian braiding by injecting coherent states of light into ``topological guided modes'' in specially-fabricated photonic waveguide arrays. These modes are photonic analogues of topological zero modes in electronic systems. Light traveling inside spatially well-separated topological guided modes can be braided, leading to the accumulation of non-Abelian phases. We propose an optical interference experiment to probe this non-Abelian braiding directly. T.I. is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship under Grant No. DGE-1247312.

  16. Fidelity susceptibility and long-range correlation in the Kitaev honeycomb model (United States)

    Yang, Shuo; Gu, Shi-Jian; Sun, Chang-Pu; Lin, Hai-Qing


    We study exactly both the ground-state fidelity susceptibility and bond-bond correlation function in the Kitaev honeycomb model. Our results show that the fidelity susceptibility can be used to identify the topological phase transition from a gapped A phase with Abelian anyon excitations to a gapless B phase with non-Abelian anyon excitations. We also find that the bond-bond correlation function decays exponentially in the gapped phase, but algebraically in the gapless phase. For the former case, the correlation length is found to be 1/ξ=2sinh-1[2Jz-1/(1-Jz)] , which diverges around the critical point Jz=(1/2)+ .

  18. Fractional statistics: Quantum possibilities in two-dimensions

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Canright, G.S.; Girvin, S.M. (Indiana Univ., Bloomington (USA))


    A standard notion of quantum mechanics is that all particles, elementary or composite, must fall into one of two fundamental categories: fermions or bosons. However, it has recently been discovered that there can be quantum particles which are neither fermions nor bosons. Such particles (anyons) can only occur in two spatial dimensions-yet this does not rule out their existence, for they are found as elementary excitations in confirmed, quasi-two-dimensional condensed-matter systems and may occur in other systems as well. An overview of the argument for the existence of anyons is presented, along with a discussion of their role in condensed-matter physics.

Then finite W-algebras are recognized in the Heisenberg quantization recently proposed by Leinaas and Myrheim, for a system of two identical particles in d dimensions. As the anyonic parameter is directly associated to the W-algebra involved in the d=1 case, it is natural to consider that the W-algebra framework is well adapted for a possible generalization of the anyon statistics.

  19. Fractionalizing Majorana Fermions: Non-Abelian Statistics on the Edges of Abelian Quantum Hall States (United States)

    Lindner, Netanel H.; Berg, Erez; Refael, Gil; Stern, Ady


    We study the non-Abelian statistics characterizing systems where counterpropagating gapless modes on the edges of fractional quantum Hall states are gapped by proximity coupling to superconductors and ferromagnets. The most transparent example is that of a fractional quantum spin Hall state, in which electrons of one spin direction occupy a fractional quantum Hall state of ν=1/m, while electrons of the opposite spin occupy a similar state with ν=-1/m. However, we also propose other examples of such systems, which are easier to realize experimentally. We find that each interface between a region on the edge coupled to a superconductor and a region coupled to a ferromagnet corresponds to a non-Abelian anyon of quantum dimension 2m. We calculate the unitary transformations that are associated with the braiding of these anyons, and we show that they are able to realize a richer set of non-Abelian representations of the braid group than the set realized by non-Abelian anyons based on Majorana fermions. We carry out this calculation both explicitly and by applying general considerations. Finally, we show that topological manipulations with these anyons cannot realize universal quantum computation.
