Typed Lecture Notes in Progress [[here|http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/SteveSimon/topological2016/TopoBook.pdf ]].

I did have the best intention of typing up the notes into a book, but I simply did not have time to do that in advance.  I am going to //try// to type as we go through the term.  The typed notes will be extremely brief and I may completely run out of stream, but I am going to try!  These are a first-first-first draft so please be forgiving!

If I do not get typed notes posted, I will post my handwritten notes as we go along.  These notes are meant only for me to read so they are provided //as is// and //caveat-emptor//.  The notes may or may-not be legible.   



[[Home]]
The recommended exercises for the course are in a big pdf file [[ here | http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/SteveSimon/topological2017/Exercises.pdf ]].   You are HIGHLY encouraged to try as many of them as you can.  They are an integral part of the course and if you actually want to learn anything, you should try the problems.  The TA will discuss all of the problems with you in the homework classes (to be scheduled). 

NOTE:  Only a small fraction of the problems are actually required and need to be marked for the course completion requirement.   The required exercises are:

Problem 1
Problem 3ab
Problem 5ab
Due ***

Problem 7ab
Problem 8
Problem 12ab
Due ***

Problem 13abcd   
Problem 16ab
Problem 17ab

!!''NEWS FLASH:  2016 Nobel prize awarded for Topological Phases of Matter!''!!


This is the official web site for the Topological Quantum course being taught in Michaelmas term 2017 as part of the [[ MMathPhys | http://mmathphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/ ]] program.  

The intersection of topology and quantum mechanics is an enormous and still growing field.   It touches upon physics topics ranging from quantum gravity to quantum information to materials physics and condensed matter experiment, as well as being one of the most interesting directions in the mathematical study of topology.   This course aims to give a broad brush introduction to the topic, giving enough information for students to begin research in these exciting directions. 


Prerequisites: Although this is a high level course, there are no particular prerequisites -- most of the material being self-contained.  It is expected that the students will be familiar with quantum mechanics.  Some familiarity with quantum field theory may be useful but is not necessary. 
 
The lecturer is [[Professor Steve Simon | http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/SteveSimon/ ]] 
If you are in the [[ MMathPhys | http://mmathphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/ ]], your TA will be ***

This page is a [[ TiddlyWiki | http://tiddlywiki.com/  ]].  It can be edited by anyone, but you can only save the edits if you have the password. 
There will be homework classes -- to be scheduled. 
Our lectures are fridays 9am-11am in the Fisher Room of the DWB every week of Michaelmas term. 

Since it is hard to concentrate for two full hours, we will have a 10 minute break after about an hour.

References come in all levels of detail and for all different backgrounds.      These are listed in roughly the  order in which they will be useful for the course. 

#A general reference which should be useful for much of the course is "Non Abelian Anyons and Topological Quantum Computation; Chetan Nayak, Steven H. Simon, Ady Stern, Michael Freedman, Sankar Das Sarma; Rev. Mod. Phys. 80, 1083 (2008).  Also available online [[ here | https://arxiv.org/abs/0707.1889 ]]   
#A wonderful little book which is really fun to read that introduces the Kauffman invariant and many other ideas of knot theory is the book "Knots and Physics", by Louis Kauffman published by World Scientific.  This book really inspired me when I was a grad student.   It appears to be available online in several places (not certain which, if any, are legal).    Although the whole book is fun;  and written at a very introductory level;  mainly the end of part 1 is the most relevant part where he explains the connection of Kauffman invariant to Chern - Simons theory (and pieces get to be well beyond introductory).  There is a lot in here , the deep parts are easy to gloss over.    
# A very nice introduction to non abelian anyons and topological quantum computation is given in Preskill's lecture notes, available [[here|http://www.theory.caltech.edu/~preskill/ph219/topological.pdf]].   
# Frank Wilczek has two books which both discuss Berry phase and abelian anyons.  The first is called "Geometric Phases in Physics" and the second is called "Fractional Statistics and Anyon Superconductivity".   Both have a lot of reprints in them with some commentary by Wilczek.  Often it is enough to read the commentary!
# If you need a refresher on path integrals, either Fabian Essler's notes [[here| http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/FabianEssler/C6web2012/lecturenotes2015.pdf]] look at the first 15 pages, or the nice article by Mackenzie [[here| https://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0004090]] look at the first 22 pages.   Mackenzie actually has some useful applications such as Aharanov - Bohm effect. 
#The classic paper "Quantum Field Theory and the Jones Polynomial"  by Ed Witten is available online [[here | https://projecteuclid.org/euclid.cmp/1104178138 ]].   This is a tremendously deep paper which introduces a lot of brilliant ideas.   I find something new every time I read it.    I find it to be tough reading in some places and easy in others.  
#From a more mathematial viewpoint [[ This article | http://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/~aar/papers/atiyahinttqft.pdf  ]] and [[ this article | http://www.math.ru.nl/~mueger/TQFT/At.pdf ]] by Sir Michael Atiyah are an introduction to topological quantum field theories.   There is a more detailed book by the same author called  "The Geometry and Physics of Knots",Cambridge U. Press, 1990.  The full book might be hard to read unless you have a very strong maths background. 
# A rather remarkably well written and readable master's thesis by Lokman Tsui on Chern - Simons theories, topological quantum field theory, and knot theory is [[here|http://ms.mcmaster.ca/~boden/students/Tsui-MSc.pdf]].
# There are several nice references on the structure of topological quantum field theories, and diagrammatic calculus, [[Parsa Bonderson's thesis | http://thesis.library.caltech.edu/2447/2/thesis.pdf]].   This is a more detailed version of the long article by Kitaev which I mention below.    Also a good reference is the book on Topological Quantum Computation by Zhenghan Wang, which appears to be online [[here | http://www.math.ucsb.edu/~zhenghwa/data/course/cbms.pdf]].   If you are more mathematical, you might like the thesis of Bruce Bartlett  [[here| https://arxiv.org/abs/math/0512103]].   
#The monumental work "Anyons in an exactly solved model and beyond by Alexei Kitaev", available online [[here | https://arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0506438 ]] brings the ideas of topological quantum field theory into the condensed matter arena.  This is not easy reading, but a ton of great ideas are buried in this paper..  Another work by Kitaev, "Fault-tolerant quantum computation by anyons,  available online [[here |  https://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/9707021]] introduces the famous toric code, discusses quantum error correction, and generalizes the toric code model to arbitrary non-abelian groups.   Kitaev's work on the quantum wire (which we might get to at the end of the course) is [[here | https://arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0010440]].   A brief digest of some of the many ideas introduced in these three papers is given by notes taken by Laumann of Kitaev's lectures, available [[here | https://arxiv.org/pdf/0904.2771v1.pdf]].
# Loop gases are introduced in [[this | http://stationq.cnsi.ucsb.edu/~freedman/Publications/83.pdf ]] paper by Freedman et al.  It has a lot of sections which are hard to parse. 
# The double-fibonacci string-net is discussed in some detail in [[this| https://arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0610583]]  work by Fidkowski et al,    
# The classic paper on string - nets very generally is [[this | https://arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0404617 ]] by Levin and Wen.  
# The standard reference on introductory quantum hall effect is the classic book, "The Quantum Hall Effect", edited by Prange and Girvin, published by Springer.   The first chapter, and the chapters by Laughlin and Haldane are probably the best.  The experimental chapters are good for context too.  Another decent reference quantum Hall physics is T. Chakraborty and P. Piettilainen, "The Quantum Hall Effects: Integral and Fractional,"  (Springer 1995).   A short review article by Macdonald is pretty nice and is available [[here | https://arxiv.org/pdf/cond-mat/9410047v1.pdf]]. 
# The article that introduced the ideas of conformal field theory into the field of quantum Hall effect is by Moore and Read, available online [[here| http://www.physics.rutgers.edu/~gmoore/MooreReadNonabelions.pdf]].  
# A recent review article on Fractional quantum Hall hierarchies (and also discusses nonabelian quantum Hall and conformal field theory) is online [[here | https://arxiv.org/abs/1601.01697]].   A revised longer version of this article should be posted soon. 



A few random digressions:

# If you are interested in 2+1 D quantum gravity, see [[this article | relativity.livingreviews.org/Articles/lrr-2005-1/download/lrr-2005-1Color.pdf ]].  I can't vouch for it, but the introduction is interesting;  [[This | http://srv2.fis.puc.cl/~mbanados/Cursos/TopicosRelatividadAvanzada/Witten2.pdf]] is the article by Witten explaining how 2+1 D gravity is "exactly solvable."     More from Witten [[here| http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0550321389905919]].   There is reconsideration many years later, again by Witten, see [[ here | https://arxiv.org/abs/0706.3359 ]]. 
# I've been told the [[book | https://www.amazon.co.uk/Introduction-Topological-Quantum-Computation-Jiannis/dp/1107005043 ]] by Jiannis Pachos on topological quantum computation is a good resource.  
# If you are interested in the topology of manifolds in 3 and 4 dimensions, there are several good books.   One by Kirby is online [[here | https://math.berkeley.edu/~kirby/papers/Kirby%20-%20The%20topology%20of%204-manifolds%20-%20MR1001966.pdf ]].  There is a book by Gompf and Stipcitz "4-manifolds and Kirby Calculus" which is nice.  See the link [[here| https://www.amazon.co.uk/4-Manifolds-Calculus-Graduate-Studies-Mathematics/dp/0821809946]].  Note that parts of this book are online free if you google them. 
# For more information on conformal field theory.  The standard reference is the [[ Big yellow book | http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-1-4612-2256-9 ]].   The first part of this book (up to chapter 12) is excellent, but even that much is a lot of reading.   There is a short set of lectures from les Houches by [[ Ginsparg | https://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9108028 ]].    I also like the short set of notes by [[ Fendley | http://galileo.phys.virginia.edu/~pf7a/msmCFT.pdf ]].   For even shorter introduction of what you need to apply CFT to quantum Hall, see the appendix of Ref. 1 above, or the appendix of  [[this | https://arxiv.org/abs/1601.01697]].
# This [[ book | http://press.princeton.edu/titles/5528.html ]] by Kauffman and Lins gives more details of constructing a full anyon theory from the kauffman invariant.
