Topological Aspects of Condensed Matter Physics: Lecture Notes of the Les Houches Summer School: Volume 103, August 2014

Claudio Chamon, Mark O. Goerbig, Roderich Moessner, and Leticia F. Cugliandolo


Topological condensed matter physics is a recent arrival among the disciplines of modern physics of a distinctive and substantive nature. Its roots reach far back, but much of its current importance derives from exciting developments in the last half-century. The field is advancing rapidly, growing explosively, and diversifying greatly. There is now a zoo of topological phenomena–the quantum spin Hall effect, topological insulators, Coulomb spin liquids, non-Abelian anyonic statistics and their potential application in topological quantum computing, to name but a few–as well as an increasingly ...

Keywords: Topological condensed matter, quantum spin Hall effect, topological insulator, Coulomb spin liquid, non-Abelian anyonic statistics
