The graphrepresentation approach to topological field theory in 2 + 1 dimensions
In this paper an alternative definition of topological quantum field theory in 2 + 1 dimensions is discussed. The fundamental objects in this approach are not gauge fields as in the usual approach, but nonlocal observables associated with graphs. The classical theory of graphs is defined by postulating a simple diagrammatic rule for computing the Poisson bracket of any two graphs. The theory is quantized by exhibiting a quantum deformation of the classical Poissonbracket algebra, which is realized as a commutator algebra on a Hilbert space of states. The wave functions in this graph representation approach are functionals on anmore » 
Skein theory and topological quantum registers: Braiding matrices and topological entanglement entropy of nonAbelian quantum Hall states
We study topological properties of quasiparticle states in the nonAbelian quantum Hall states. We apply a skeintheoretic method to the ReadRezayi state whose effective theory is the SU(2){sub K} ChernSimons theory. As a generalization of the Pfaffian (K = 2) and the Fibonacci (K = 3) anyon states, we compute the braiding matrices of quasiparticle states with arbitrary spins. Furthermore we propose a method to compute the entanglement entropy skeintheoretically. We find that the entanglement entropy has a nontrivial contribution called the topological entanglement entropy which depends on the quantum dimension of nonAbelian quasiparticle intertwining two subsystems.
