**Abstract:** I will discuss topological order in the fractional
quantum Hall effect, with particular emphasis on the possibility of non-Abelian
braiding statistics. I will also discuss the possible realization
of topological order in the high-temperature superconducting cuprates.
Possible applications to quantum computation will be considered.
**Host:** Sankar Das Sarma
