Coupled-wire constructions: a Luttinger liquid approach to topology

  • 28 Accesses

Abstract

Coupled-wire constructions use bosonization to analytically tackle the strong interactions underlying fractional topological states of matter. We give an introduction to this technique, discuss its strengths and weaknesses, and provide an overview of the main achievements of coupled-wire constructions.
