Universal topological quantum computation in a classically simulable

anyon model

We explore the use of topological defects for quantum computation;

specifically, we present a protocol for universal quantum computation

through the braiding of twist defects in a double-layer ising anyon

model. The braiding of anyons in this model is known to be efficiently

simulable on a classical computer. We also discuss implementation of

this scheme in the Kitaev honeycomb model.
