@article{Bhattacharjee2020BilayerHS, title={Bilayer Haldane system: Topological characterization and adiabatic passages connecting Chern phases}, author={Sourav Bhattacharjee and Souvik Bandyopadhyay and Diptiman Sen and Amit Kumar Dutta}, journal={arXiv: Statistical Mechanics}, year={2020} }

We present a complete topological characterization of a bilayer composite of two Chern insulators (specifically, Haldane models) and explicitly establish the bulk-boundary correspondences. We show that the non-Abelian Chern number (NACN) accurately maps out all the possible phases of the system as it remains well-defined even in the presence of degeneracies in the occupied bands. Importantly, our result paves the way for realizing adiabatic preparation of monolayer Chern insulators. This has…
