"Measurement-Only Topological Quantum Computation"
 Slideshow (PDF)
The topological approach to quantum computing derives intrinsic fault-tolerance by encoding qubits in the non-local state spaces of non-Abelian anyons. The original prescription required topological charge measurement for qubit readout, and used braiding exchanges of anyons to execute computational gates. We present an anyonic analog of quantum state teleportation, and use it to show how a series of topological charge measurements may replace the physical transportation of computational anyons in the implementation of computational gates.
