Formatted abstract
The golden chain with antiferromagnetic interaction is an anyonic system of particular interest as when all anyons are confined to the chain, it is readily stabilized against fluctuations away from criticality. However, additional local scaling operators have recently been identified on the disk which may give rise to relevant fluctuations in the presence of free charges. Motivated by these results for Fibonacci anyons, this paper presents a systematic method of identifying all topological sectors of local scaling operators for critical anyon rings of arbitrary winding number on surfaces of arbitrary genus, extending the original classification scheme proposed by Feiguin Using the new scheme, it is then shown that for the golden chain, additional relevant scaling operators exist on the torus which are equivalent to those detected on the disk and which may disrupt the stability of the critical system. Protection of criticality against perturbations generated by these additional scaling operators can be achieved by suppressing the exchange of charge between the anyon ring and the rest of the manifold.
