This is a talk in two distinct parts. The first section briefly discusses Anyons which are quasi-particles present in certain condensed matter systems that could be of use in quantum computation. Attempts to find experimentally verifiable theoretical properties of their behaviour are detailed. The second section is a review of certain Monte Carlo methods. There is a bias towards slice sampling, which is used as a case study to motivate Markov chain Monte Carlo and exact sampling methods.

This talk is part of the Machine Learning @ CUED series.
