  • About the Edition

    Topological insulators are insulating in the bulk, but process metallic states around its boundary owing to the topological origin of the band structure. The metallic edge or surface states are immune to weak disorder or impurities, and robust against the deformation of the system geometry. This book, Topological insulators, presents a unified description of topological insulators from one to three dimensions based on the modified Dirac equation. A series of solutions of the bound states near the boundary are derived, and the existing conditions of these solutions are described. Topological invariants and their applications to a variety of systems from one-dimensional polyacetalene, to two-dimensional quantum spin Hall effect and p-wave superconductors, and three-dimensional topological insulators and superconductors or superfluids are introduced, helping readers to better understand this fascinating new field.

    This book is intended for researchers and graduate students working in the field of topological insulators and related areas.

    Shun-Qing Shen is a Professor at the Department of Physics, the University of Hong Kong, China.

    This book is the first pedagogical synthesis of the field of topological insulators and superconductors, one of the most exciting areas of research in condensed matter physics. Presenting the latest developments, while providing all the calculations necessary for a self-contained and complete description of the discipline, it is ideal for researchers and graduate . : Topological Insulators and Topological Superconductors () by Bernevig, B. Andrei and a great selection of similar New, Used and Collectible Books available now at great prices/5(2).

      In general, you are asking about many-body physics, and Coleman's book "Introduction to Many-Body Physics" is a good place to start (assuming it's at an appropriate level for you). Thanks for the suggestion. This book is the result of dynamic developments that have occurred in condensed matter physics after the recent discovery of a new class of electronic materials: topological insulators. A topological insulator is a material that behaves as a band insulator in its interior, while acting as a metallic conductor at its surface.

    You don't need any fancy mathematics to understand the basic ideas behind a topological insulator (TI). It's not that hard to understand what a winding number is. It is much easier to start with TI's in two dimensions. In general, when I am tryi.   Additionally, the book covers zero modes on vortices in topological superconductors, time-reversal topological superconductors, and topological responses/field theory and topological indices. The book also analyzes recent topics in condensed matter theory and concludes by surveying active subfields of research such as insulators with point.

This book, Topological insulators, presents a unified description of topological insulators from one to three dimensions based on the modified Dirac equation. A series of solutions of the bound states near the boundary are derived, and the existing conditions of these solutions are described.

A more mathematical approach aimed at physicists (and to really understand topological insulators, you do need quite advanced mathematics) is the book by Emil Prodan and Hermann Schulz-Baldes titled “Bulk and Boundary Invariants for Complex Topological Insulators: From K-Theory to Physics”.Strictly speaking, they only cover two of the 10 Altland-Zirnbauer classes.

Written by an international team of experts, many of them directly involved in the very first discovery of topological insulators, the book provides the readers with the knowledge they need to understand the electronic behavior of these unique by: Topological insulators are one of them.

The present book for the first time provides a full overview and in-depth knowledge about this hot topic in materials science and condensed matter physics.

46 pages, 29 figures. This papers aims to be a pedagogical review on topological insulators. It was written for the topical issue of "Comptes Rendus de Topological Insulators book des Sciences - Physique" devoted to topological insulators and Dirac matter: Subjects: Mesoscale and Nanoscale Physics (-hall); Materials Science (-sci)Cited by: It moves on to explain topological phases of matter such as Chern insulators, two- and three-dimensional topological insulators, and Majorana p-wave wires.

Additionally, the book covers zero modes on vortices in topological superconductors, time-reversal topological superconductors, and topological responses/field theory and topological indices.

The main part of the book discusses realistic models for both time-reversal-preserving and -violating topological insulators, as well as their characteristic responses to external perturbations. Special emphasis is given to the study of the anomalous electric, thermal, and thermoelectric transport properties, the theory of orbital magnetisation.

This book, the first of its kind on topological insulators, presents a unified description of topological insulators from one to three dimensions based on the modified Dirac equation.

A series of solutions of the bound states near the boundary are derived, and the existing conditions of these solutions are : Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. “The book presents a comprehensive study of topological insulators and is an interesting attempt to generalize all-possible approaches and methods, developed in this area of Brand: Springer Singapore.

Additionally, the book covers zero modes on vortices in topological superconductors, time-reversal topological superconductors, and topological responses/field theory and topological indices. The book also analyzes recent topics in condensed matter theory and concludes by surveying active subfields of research such as insulators with point.

The book begins with the fundamental description on the topological phases of matter such as one, two- and three-dimensional topological insulators, and methods and tools for topological material's investigations, topological insulators for advanced optoelectronic devices, topological superconductors, saturable absorber and in plasmonic devices.

Photonic topological insulators are artificial electromagnetic materials that support topologically non-trivial, unidirectional states of light.

Photonic topological phases are classical electromagnetic wave analogues of electronic topological phases studied in condensed matter r to their electronic counterparts, they, can provide robust unidirectional channels for light. Topological Insulators, volume six in the Contemporary Concepts of Condensed Matter Series, describes the recent revolution in condensed matter physics that occurred in our understanding of crystalline book chronicles the work done worldwide that led to these discoveries and provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the : Elsevier Science.

Unlike Chern insulators, Z 2 topological insulators also exist in three dimensions. In three-dimensional topological insulators, the topological invariants are parameterized by four binary in The hallmark of the Z 2 topological order in 3D is the existence of surface states with a linear dispersion and obeying the Dirac equation.

The dispersion. The field of topological insulators is very active, with many experimental chal-lenges and open theoretical problems, regarding the effects of electron-electron in-teraction, extra crystalline symmetries, coupling to the environment, etc.
