# Anomalous bulk-edge correspondence in continuous media

@article{Tauber2019AnomalousBC, title={Anomalous bulk-edge correspondence in continuous media}, author={C. Tauber and Pierre Delplace and A. Venaille}, journal={arXiv: Mesoscale and Nanoscale Physics}, year={2019} }

Topology plays an increasing role in physics beyond the realm of topological insulators in condensed mater. From geophysical fluids to active matter, acoustics or photonics, a growing family of systems presents topologically protected chiral edge modes. The number of such modes should coincide with the bulk topological invariant (e.g. Chern number) defined for a sample without boundary, in agreement with the bulk-edge correspondence. However this is not always the case when dealing with… Expand

Physical Violations of the Bulk-Edge Correspondence in Topological Electromagnetics.

- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 2020

The correspondence principle is physically violated for all practical purposes, as a result of the unavoidable attenuation of highly confined modes even if all materials are assumed perfect, with zero intrinsic bulk losses, due to confinement-induced Landau damping or nonlocality-induced radiation leakage.
