Attended the presentation “An excursion through flatland: Braiding interactions of anyons,” by Gavin K. Brennen, Dept. of Physics, Macquarie University, Sydney.  Anyons are hypothetical particles.  They interact as a function of braiding, knotting or topological relationship with other particles rather than with distance (as with other matter).  Majorana fermions are an example of fermionic anyons.
