I am looking for resources (both pedagogical and newer research articles) on the connection between topological quantum computation and conformal field theory. In particular, a CFT description of anyonic braiding, fractional statistics, and/or the braid group of which assumes basic knowledge of conformal field theory and topological quantum computation. Does anyone know any good resources on this subject?
Here are some important papers
Fault-tolerant quantum computation by anyons (Kitaev 2003)
Computing with quantum knots (Collins 2006)
Non-Abelian anyons and topological quantum computation (Nayak et al. 2008)
Measurement-only topological quantum computation via anyonic interferometry (Bonderson et al. 2009)
an online book
Introduction to topological quantum computation (Pachos 2012)
and an introduction
An Anyon Primer (Rao 1992).
