Condensed Matter Theory


  • Topological phases of matter -- topological order, symmetry-protected topological phases (insulators, semimetals, superconductors), bulk-boundary correspondence, surface anomalies, Majorana boundary modes
  • Hyperbolic matter -- non-Abelian band theory, hyperbolic topological phases, experimental synthetization, connection to AdS/CFT
  • Correlated quantum many-body system -- SYK models, frustrated spin models 
  • Table-top simulation of high-energy physics or gravity -- emergence (chiral anomaly in Weyl and Dirac semimetals, Majorana fermions at boundary of topological superconductors), holographic duality (black hole dual realized as SYK model in graphene)
