This is the final report for Classifying the Quantum Phases of Matter, FA8750-12-2-0308. Among other achievements, we made progress toward the following goals 1 finding a classification of locally definable quantum states those without symmetries or long - range entanglement, 2 elucidating the properties of three-dimensional quantum codes in particular those which admit no string - like logical operators. 3 characterizing symmetry-protected fermionic phases, 4 proving the stability of topological phases of matter with respect to generic perturbation.
