Tony Leggett is interested in determining whether or not the “established” scheme proposed in the literature (Ivanov 2001,and many subsequent papers) for the implementation of topological quantum computing using the so-called (p+ip) Fermi superfluids is vitiated by a failure to take adequate account of the necessity to conserve total particle number.

Applicability of QM at macrolevel; topological quantum computing in chiral Fermi superfluids; decoherence in superconducting qubits and nuclear spin systems
