We give an introduction to the theory of topological quantum computing (TQC), which is an approach to realizing quantum computation with non-Abelian anyons. In terms of computational power, TQC is equivalent to other models of quantum computation such as the quantum circuit model, but TQC has the advantage of being automatically fault-tolerant. We discuss some issues in TQC regarding universality, entanglement, and leakage.
