Stability of superselection sectors

April 11, 2018

Our paper On the stability of charges in infinite quantum spin systems has just appeared on the arXiv. In it we prove that the superselection structure describing the anyons in abelian versions of Kitaev's quantum double model is stable against perturbations of the dynamics.
