Periodic driving of a quantum system can enable new topological phases with no analog in static systems. In this paper we systematically classify one-dimensional topological and symmetry-protected topological (SPT) phases in interacting fermionic and bosonic quantum systems subject to periodic driving, which we dub Floquet SPTs (FSPTs). For physical realizations of interacting FSPTs, many-body localization by disorder is a crucial ingredient, required to obtain a stable phase that does not…

Topology and localization of a periodically driven Kitaev model
Periodically driven quantum many-body systems support anomalous topological phases of matter, which cannot be realized by static systems. In many cases, these anomalous phases can be many-body

Interacting symmetry-protected topological phases out of equilibrium
The topological features of quantum many-body wave functions are known to have profound consequences for the physics of ground-states and their low-energy excitations. We describe how topology

Classification of the non-equilibrium quantum many-body dynamics is a challenging problem in condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics. In this work, we study the basic question that whether
Gauging spatial symmetries and the classification of topological crystalline phases
We put the theory of interacting topological crystalline phases on a systematic footing. These are topological phases protected by space-group symmetries. Our central tool is an elucidation of what
Superuniversality from disorder at two-dimensional topological phase transitions
We investigate the effects of quenched randomness on topological quantum phase transitions in strongly-interacting two-dimensional systems. We focus first on transitions driven by the condensation of
Topological Invariants for Quantum Quench Dynamics from Unitary Evolution.
TLDR
The concept of loop unitary constructed from the unitary time-evolution operator is introduced and its homotopy invariant fully characterizes the dynamical topology, proving that the invariant is precisely equal to the change in the Chern number across the quench, regardless of the initial state.

In closed quantum systems, strong randomness can localize many-body excitations, preventing ergodicity. An interesting consequence is that high energy excited states can exhibit quantum coherent

TLDR
Just as group theory allows us to construct 230 crystal structures in three-dimensional space, group cohomology theory is used to systematically construct different interacting bosonic SPT phases in any dimension and with any symmetry, leading to the discovery of bosonic topological insulators and superconductors.
