Response Theory and Symmetry Protected Topological Phases

  • Thomas Klein Kvorning
Chapter
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

Abstract

The topologically ordered phases, discussed in the last chapter, are the fundamental zero-temperature phases—if you allow for arbitrary changes of your system (i.e., the Hamiltonian), you can continuously interpolate between all other phases. But this is a too restrictive view and would make us miss important phase differences, as between solids and liquids. In many situations there are symmetries that all physically realizable perturbations, at least on long length scales, uphold. In those situations it is natural to consider what the possible phases are if we restrict ourselves to systems with a certain symmetry, i.e., symmetry protected phases.
