Non-Abelian phases and quantum computation with Josephson junctions

Non-Abelian geometric phases can be generated and detected in certain super-conducting nanocircuits. Here we consider an example where the holonomies are related to the adiabatic charge dynamics of the Josephson network. We demonstrate that such a device can be applied both for adiabatic charge pumping and as an implementation of a quantum computer.
