Download e-book for iPad: A Short Course on Topological Insulators: Band Structure and by János K. Asbóth,László Oroszlány,András Pályi Pályi

By János K. Asbóth,László Oroszlány,András Pályi Pályi

This course-based primer offers novices to the sector with a concise creation to a couple of the center subject matters within the rising box of topological insulators.

the purpose is to supply a uncomplicated knowing of aspect states, bulk topological invariants, and of the bulk--boundary correspondence with as uncomplicated mathematical instruments as possible. 

the current strategy makes use of noninteracting lattice versions of topological insulators, development steadily on those to reach from the easiest one-dimensional case (the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger version for polyacetylene) to two-dimensional time-reversal invariant topological insulators (the Bernevig-Hughes-Zhang version for HgTe). In every one case the dialogue of straightforward toy versions is via the formula of the overall arguments concerning topological insulators.

the single prerequisite for the reader is a operating wisdom in quantum mechanics, the correct reliable country physics historical past is equipped as a part of this self-contained textual content, that's complemented by way of end-of-chapter problems.
