Classification of metaplectic modular categories Academic Article uri icon


  • 2016 We obtain a classification of metaplectic modular categories: every metaplectic modular category is a gauging of the particlehole symmetry of a cyclic modular category. Our classification suggests a conjecture that every weakly-integral modular category can be obtained by gauging a symmetry (including the fermion parity) of a pointed (super-)modular category.
