Custodial chiral symmetry in SSH memcircuits

  title={Custodial chiral symmetry in SSH memcircuits},
  author={Massimiliano Di Ventra and Yuriy V. Pershin and Chih-Chun Chien},
Custodial symmetries are common in the Standard Model of particle physics. They arise when quantum corrections to a parameter are proportional to the parameter itself. Here, we show that a custodial symmetry of the chiral type is also present in a classical Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) electrical circuit with memory (memcircuit). In the absence of memory, the SSH circuit supports a symmetry-protected topological edge state. Memory induces nonlinearities that break chiral symmetry explicitly and… Expand

Topologically Protected Edge State in Two-Dimensional Su–Schrieffer–Heeger Circuit
This work design and experimentally demonstrate a topologically nontrivial band structure and the associated topologically protected edge states in an RF circuit, which is composed of a collection of grounded capacitors connected by alternating inductors in the x and y directions, in analogy to the Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model.

Reciprocal skin effect and its realization in a topolectrical circuit
A system is non-Hermitian when it exchanges energy with its environment and non-reciprocal when it behaves differently upon the interchange of input and response. Within the field of metamaterialExpand

This article reviews the key concepts pertaining to topological phases in non-Hermitian Hamiltonians with relevant examples and realistic model setups, and highlights potential applications of some of these unique topological features of the non- hermitianHamiltonians. Expand
Memristive model of amoeba learning.
It is shown that the amoebalike cell Physarum polycephalum when exposed to a pattern of periodic environmental changes learns and adapts its behavior in anticipation of the next stimulus to come and is useful to better understand the origins of primitive intelligence. Expand
