# Homotopy Theoretic Classification of Symmetry Protected Phases

@article{Campbell2017HomotopyTC, title={Homotopy Theoretic Classification of Symmetry Protected Phases}, author={Jonathan A. Campbell}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Topology}, year={2017} }

We classify a number of symmetry protected phases using Freed-Hopkins' homotopy theoretic classification. Along the way we compute the low-dimensional homotopy groups of a number of novel cobordism spectra.
