International Workshop : Mathematical Approach to Topological Phases in Spintronics

Workshop description

Recent insights in the deep connection between the physics of Topological Insulators and the Atiyah–Singer Index Theorem inspire Mathematicians and Mathematical Physicists by the implied rich potential for discovery of new topological phases and need for their mathematical description. We will gather an interdisciplinary group of leading researchers to explore this space and discuss prospects and directions for further developments. We specially target a mathematical framework for the bulk-edge correspondence for interacting systems as well as topological phases of disordered systems.
