a bare list of references, to be !include
-ed into the References-section of relevant entries (such as at braid group representation and at semi-metal).
Had originally compiled this list already last April (for this MO reply) but back then the nLab couldnt be edited
I’d also like to compile a list of references which admit or at least indicate that the usual hope of having anyonic topological order on a toroidal (or even higher genus) position space is dubious.
I had come across several such references in the past, but didn’t record them in this respect. So now I need to re-compile a list. For the moment I have
which is quite explicit.
I vividly remember a reference on the alleged classification of topological order by FQFT/cobordism which tried to argue that crystal impurities could mimic higher genus position space geometries. But it seems I have lost it and now it’s the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Here, we consider an exotic type of topological phases beyond the above paradigms that, instead, depend on topological charge conversion processes when band nodes are braided with respect to each other in momentum space or recombined over the Brillouin zone. The braiding of band nodes is in some sense the reciprocal space analog of the non-Abelian braiding of particles in real space.
[…]
we experimentally observe non-Abelian topological semimetals and their evolutions using acoustic Bloch bands in kagome acoustic metamaterials. By tuning the geometry of the metamaterials, we experimentally confirm the creation, annihilation, moving, merging and splitting of the topological band nodes in multiple bandgaps and the associated non-Abelian topological phase transitions

added a warning:
Beware that various authors consider braids/knots formed by nodal lines in 3d semimetals, i.e. knotted nodal lines in 3 spatial dimensions, as opposed to worldlines of nodal points in 2+1 spacetime dimensions needed for anyon-braiding as considered above.
and then, to start with, pointer to this argument that these nodal lines in 3d space, nevertheless, may be controlled by Chern-Simons theory:

with this quote:
“Based on first-principles calculations, we report that such nodal point braiding in 2D electronic bands can be realized in a MSWI candidate, the bilayer $ZrTe_5$ with in-plane ferromagnetism under pressure. […] one can expect that the braiding of nodes can be achieved in 2D bilayer $ZrTe_5$ under the influence of an external in-plane Zeeman field.”
