## Quantum Gravity Lesson 8

##### 21 December 2018

The anyon charges on the parity cube are naturally associated to the Bilson-Thompson ribbon diagrams for SM states, putting the SM into the world of quantum computation. Fibonacci anyons are useful in universal quantum computation, the process of constructing arbitrary gates from a few ingredients, using the braid group representations of the associated category.

Instead of a gauge group like SU(2), we start with the braid group, infinite but discrete.
