Abstract: Demonstrate how exotic quantum statistics, including both braiding statistics and exclusion statistics, emerge for quasiparticle excitations in exactly solvable discrete models for 2d topological phases, such as fluxons in the Levin-Wen model. Succeeded in constructing explicit operators to identify the excitation configurations and to implement hopping of excitations, and used numerical methods to identify the statistical parameters.
