T opological phases of matter have established a new paradigm in physics, bringing quantum phenomena to the macroscopic scale and hosting exotic emergent quasiparticles. In this thesis, I demonstrateExpand
Type-II Topological Dirac Semimetals: Theory and Materials Prediction (VAl3 family)
The discoveries of Dirac and Weyl semimetal states in spin-orbit compounds led to the realizations of elementary particle analogs in table-top experiments. In this paper, we propose the concept of aExpand


Maximally localized Wannier functions in LaMnO3 within PBE + U, hybrid functionals and partially self-consistent GW: an efficient route to construct ab initio tight-binding parameters for eg perovskites.
This work discusses two alternative model parameterizations: one in which the effects of the el-el interaction are implicitly incorporated in the otherwise 'noninteracting' TB parameters and a second where an explicit mean-field el-El interaction term in the TB Hamiltonian is included. Expand
Topology and interactions in a frustrated slab: tuning from Weyl semimetals to C>1 fractional Chern insulators.
In the three-dimensional limit, it is argued for the absence of gapped states of the flat surface band due to a topologically protected coupling of the surface to gapless states in the bulk. Expand
A strongly robust type II Weyl fermion semimetal state in Ta3S2
Ta3S2 has the largest k-space separation between Weyl nodes among known Weyl semimetal candidates, which is about twice larger than the measured value in TaAs and 20 times larger than that in WTe2, and is predicted to drive a novel topological metal-to-insulator transition from a Weyl Semimetal state to a topological insulator state.

Criteria for Directly Detecting Topological Fermi Arcs in Weyl Semimetals.
It is shown that it is unreasonable to directly observe Fermi arcs in NbP by ARPES within available experimental resolution and spectral linewidth, and rigorously demonstrate a nonzero Chern number in TaAs by counting chiral edge modes on a closed loop. Expand
TaIrTe4: A ternary type-II Weyl semimetal
In metallic condensed matter systems two different types of Weyl fermions can in principle emerge, with either a vanishing (type-I) or with a finite (type-II) density of states at the Weyl nodeExpand

Spectroscopic evidence for a type II Weyl semimetallic state in MoTe2.
This work identifies the Weyl points and demonstrates that they are connected by different sets of Fermi arcs for each of the two surface terminations and finds new surface 'track states' that form closed loops and are unique to type II Weyl semimetals. Expand
Type-II Weyl semimetals
This work proposes the existence of a previously overlooked type of Weyl fermion that emerges at the boundary between electron and hole pockets in a new phase of matter and discovers a type-II Weyl point, which is still a protected crossing, but appears at the contact of electron and Hole pockets in type- II Weyl semimetals.

Maximally localized Wannier functions for entangled energy bands
We present a method for obtaining well-localized Wannier-like functions (WF's) for energy bands that are attached to or mixed with other bands. The present scheme removes the limitation of the usualExpand
Intrinsic anomalous Hall effect in type-II Weyl semimetals
Recently, a new type of Weyl semimetal called type-II Weyl semimetal has been proposed. Unlike the usual (type-I) Weyl semimetal, which has a point-like Fermi surface, this new type of Weyl semimetalExpand
