Abstract/Media

I'll talk about the 6th open problem on this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unsolved_problems_in_physics#Condensed_matter_physics (listed under "Fractional Hall effect").

More concretely, I'll try to explain to an audience of topologists the way in which physicists use the word "topological".
