Haag duality and the distal split property for cones in the toric code    [PDF]

Pieter Naaijkens
We prove that Haag duality holds for cones in the toric code model. That is, for a cone Lambda, the algebra R_Lambda of observables localized in Lambda and the algebra R_{Lambda^c} of observables localized in the complement Lambda^c generate each other's commutant as von Neumann algebras. Moreover, we show that the distal split property holds: if Lambda_1 \subset Lambda_2 are two cones whose boundaries are well separated, there is a Type I factor N such that R_{Lambda_1} \subset N \subset R_{Lambda_2}. We demonstrate this by explicitly constructing N.
