Original Paper


This is a survey article dedicated to the study of topological quantities in theory of normal metals discovered in the works of the authors during the last years. Our results are based on the theory of dynamical systems on Fermi surfaces. The physical foundations of this theory (the so-called “Geometric Strong Magnetic Field Limit”) were found by the school of I. M. Lifshitz many years ago. Here the new aspects in the topology of quasiperiodic functions are developed.
