Abstract

In this talk I will discuss how non-abelian anyons that are richer than Majorana fermions may be engineered by coupling counter-propagating edge modes of abelian quantum Hall states. Furthermore, I will discuss whether and when such anyons may be created in one dimensional wires. I will NOT assume that the audience is fluent in the field of non-abelian anyons.
