In this work the authors generate the ten-fold classification of the periodic table of topological insulators by studying random Dirac Hamiltonians supporting a Dirac mass. They use homotopy groups to establish the phase diagram that encodes Anderson localization and provide an alternative explanation for the even-odd effect in the one-dimensional chiral classes. 
Fractional Abelian topological phases of matter for fermions in two-dimensional space
These notes constitute chapter 7 from "l'Ecole de Physique des Houches" Session CIII, August 2014 dedicated to Topological Aspects of Condensed matter physics. The tenfold way in

Localized surfaces of three-dimensional topological insulators
We study the surface of a three-dimensional spin chiral $\mathrm{Z}_2$ topological insulator (class CII), demonstrating the possibility of its localization. This arises through an interplay of
Classification of topological quantum matter with symmetries
Topological materials have become the focus of intense research in recent years, since they exhibit fundamentally new physical phenomena with potential applications for novel devices and quantum
Metal or insulator? Dirac operator spectrum in holographic QCD
Abstract The lattice studies in QCD demonstrate the nontrivial localization behavior of the eigenmodes of the 4D Euclidean Dirac operator considered as Hamiltonian of 4 + 1 dimensional disordered
Topological phase diagram of the disordered 2XY model in presence of generalized Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction.
The localization length outperforms the standard topological indices in two respects: it is much faster and more accurate to calculate and it can count the winding number of the parent Hamiltonian by looking into the edges of the daughter Hamiltonian.
Anomalous Floquet topological crystalline insulators
Periodically driven systems can host so-called anomalous topological phases in which protected boundary states coexist with topologically trivial Floquet bulk bands. We introduce an anomalous version
Mobility edge and Black Hole Horizon
We conjecture that the mobility edge in the 4D Euclidean Dirac operator spectrum in QCD in the deconfined phase found in the lattice studies corresponds to the near black hole (BH) horizon region in
Topological phase transitions in the 1D multichannel Dirac equation with random mass and a random matrix model
We establish the connection between a multichannel disordered model --the 1D Dirac equation with $N\times N$ matricial random mass-- and a random matrix model corresponding to a deformation of the
Quantum Lattice Boltzmann Study of Random-Mass Dirac Fermions in One Dimension
We study the time evolution of quenched random-mass Dirac fermions in one dimension by quantum lattice Boltzmann simulations. For nonzero noise strength, the diffusion of an initial wave packet stops
