We show that unconventional boundary phenonema appear in the 3Q charge bond orders on hexagonal lattices. At the saddle points with Van Hove singularity, the 3Q orders can develop at three nesting momenta. An insulator can develop from the bond modulations, where the C6 symmetry is respected. On the kagome lattice, in-gap corner states arise and carry fractional corner charges 2e/3. Such corner phenomena originates from the corner filling anomaly and indicates a higher-order topological… Expand

Complex charge density waves at Van Hove singularity on hexagonal lattices: Haldane-model phase diagram and potential realization in the kagome metals AV3Sb5 ( A =K, Rb, Cs)
We analyze how the real and imaginary charge density waves interplay at the Van Hove singularity on the hexagonal lattices. A phenomenological Ginzburg-Landau analysis indicates the formation ofExpand
Kagome superconductors from Pomeranchuk fluctuations in charge density wave metals
Motivated by the recent experiments on the kagome metals AV3Sb5 with A = K,Rb,Cs, which see onset of charge density wave (CDW) order at ∼ 100 K and superconductivity at ∼ 1 K, we explore the onset ofExpand
