< span style="background-color:white">Ising anyons\, Majorana fermions (MF) and zero energy Majorana bound states have promising prospects in topologi cal quantum computing (TQC) because of their ability to store quantum stat es non-locally in space and insensitivity to local decoherence. Unfortunat ely\, these objects are not powerful enough to assemble a TQC that can per form universal operations using topological braiding operations alone. On the other hand\, there are anyonic quasiparticles\, like the Fibonacci any on in a Read-Rezayi quantum Hall state\, that are universal in the braidin g-based TQC sense. However\, these are quantum dynamical excitations\, whi ch can be challenging to spatially manipulate and susceptible to temperatu re fluctuations in a thermodynamic system. We propose and define a new not ion of universal fractional quasiparticles\, which are semi-classical stat ic topological defects\, supported by many-body interacting MFs in a super conducting spin-orbit coupled topological electronic system.
