Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A two-dimensional quantum system with anyonic excitations can be considered as a quantum computer Unitary transformations can be performed by moving the excitations around each other Unitary transformation can be done by joining excitations in pairs and observing the result of fusion.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a spin-1/2 system on a honeycomb lattice is studied, where the interactions between nearest neighbors are of XX, YY or ZZ type, depending on the direction of the link; different types of interactions may differ in strength.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, two genuinely quantum models for an antiferromagnetic linear chain with nearest neighbor interactions are constructed and solved exactly, in the sense that the ground state, all the elementary excitations and the free energy are found.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the low energy representation of several Green's functions and form factors and of the na scattering amplitude are calculated in terms of a few constants, which may be identified with the coupling constants of a unique effective low energy Lagrangian.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The density matrix renormalization group method (DMRG) has established itself over the last decade as the leading method for the simulation of the statics and dynamics of one-dimensional strongly correlated quantum lattice systems as mentioned in this paper.
