Debris with fractional facts interpolating among bosons and fermions have attracted enormous curiosity from mathematical physicists. in recent times it has emerged that those so-called anyons have fairly unforeseen purposes, equivalent to the fractional corridor impact, anyonic excitations in movies of liquid helium, and high-temrperature superconductivity. additionally, they're mentioned additionally within the context of conformal box theories. This e-book is a scientific and pedagogical advent that considers the topic of anyons from many various issues of view. specifically, the writer provides the relation of anyons to braid teams and Chern-Simons box conception and devotes 3 chapters to actual functions. The booklet, whereas being of curiosity to researchers, essentially addresses complicated scholars of arithmetic and physics.

Thus 7ro(Y) is the set of distinct, connected components of Y. If Y is connected, then 7r0 (Y) has just one element. 1T0 (Y) is not a group. We shall need some results on the homotopy groups of coset spaces in Chapter 8. Let G be a Lie group with subgroup H. e. 1TI(G) = I. Note that 7ro(G) and 7ro(H) are groups because one can use the group multiplication of G to compose elements. 7) follow from the existence of a series of homomorphisms between homotopy groups, called the exact homotopy sequence.

52) is that the ordinary Laplacian operator is replaced by the covariant Laplacian on X. 61 ) (t,x), ... , 1>n(t,x)), where Locally, the field is represented by 1>(t,x) = n = dim Y. Abstractly, (1)1,'''' 1>n) are coordinates on Y. One needs a metric Hlm (1)1, ... ,1>n) on Y to define the Lagrangian. A particular example is sigma model Lagrangian, which depends quadratically on the time and space derivatives of the field, and has no potential term. 62) 28 Lagrangians and fields The symmetry group of this Lagrangian is the product of the isometry groups of X and Y, together with time translation invariance.

Y ! , [J Fig. 5. Sketch to illustrate that for n 2:: 2 the order in which two maps are composed can be reversed. The group 1T'n(Y) , for n 2:: 2, is therefore abelian. Calculation of homotopy groups 1T'n(Y) is a major task of algebraic topology, and is not easy. We quote some of the most important results for us. A basic result is \In 2: 1. 4) The generator of the group is the class of the identity map from sn to itself. g. the map (r cos B, r sin B, x 3, x4, ... , xn+l) 1---+ (r cos kB, r sin kB, x 3, x4, ...
