Fractionalizing glide reflections in two-dimensional topologically ordered phases

Abstract:

We study the fractionalization of space group symmetries in two-dimensional topologically ordered phases. Specifically, we focus on Z2-fractionalized phases in two dimensions whose deconfined topological excitations transform trivially under translational symmetries but projectively under glide reflections, whose quantum numbers are hence fractionalized. We accomplish this by generalizing the dichotomy between even and odd gauge theories to incorporate additional symmetries inherent to nonsym...
