We show that a topological pump in a one-dimensional (1D) insulator can induce a strictly quantized transport in an auxiliary chain of non-interacting fermions weakly coupled to the first. The transported charge is determined by an integer topological invariant of the ficticious Hamiltonian of the insulator, given by the covariance matrix of single-particle correlations. If the original system consists of non-interacting fermions, this number is identical to the TKNN (Thouless, Kohmoto…

Finite-Temperature Topological Invariant for Interacting Systems.

The ensemble geometric phase is generalized to finite-temperature states of interacting systems in one spatial dimension (1D) and its value at finite temperatures is identical to that of the ground state below some critical temperature T_{c} larger than the many-body gap.

Chern number and Berry curvature for Gaussian mixed states of fermions

We generalize the concept of topological invariants for mixed states based on the ensemble geometric phase (EGP) introduced for one-dimensional lattice models to two dimensions. In contrast to the

Quantized single-particle Thouless pump induced by topology transfer from a Chern insulator at finite temperature

Quantized particle or spin transport upon cyclic parameter variations, determined by topological invariants, is a key signature of Chern insulators in the ground state. While measurable many-body



Topological pumping in the one-dimensional Bose-Hubbard model

By means of time-dependent density-matrix renormalization-group calculations, we study topological quantum pumping in a strongly interacting system. The system under consideration is described by the

Reservoir-induced Thouless pumping and symmetry-protected topological order in open quantum chains

We introduce a classification of symmetry-protected topological phases applicable to stationary states of open systems based on a generalization of the many-body polarization. The polarization can be

Topological invariants and interacting one-dimensional fermionic systems

We study one-dimensional, interacting, gapped fermionic systems described by variants of the Peierls-Hubbard model, and we characterize their phases via a topological invariant constructed out of

Probing the topology of density matrices

The mixedness of a quantum state is usually seen as an adversary to topological quantization of observables. For example, exact quantization of the charge transported in a so-called Thouless

Topology by dissipation

Topological states of fermionic matter can be induced by means of a suitably engineered dissipative dynamics. Dissipation then does not occur as a perturbation, but rather as the main resource for

Finite-size corrections to quantized particle transport in topological charge pumps

We investigate the quantization of adiabatic charge transport in the insulating ground state of finite systems. Topological charge pumps are used in experiments as an indicator of topological order.

Fractional charge pumping of interacting bosons in one-dimensional superlattice

Motivated by experimental realizations of integer quantized charge pumping in one-dimensional superlattices [Nat. Phys. 12, 350 (2016); Nat. Phys. 12, 296 (2016)], we generalize and propose the

Single-particle Green’s functions and interacting topological insulators

We study topological insulators characterized by the integer topological invariant Z, in even and odd spacial dimensions. These are well understood in case when there are no interactions. We extend

An analog of the quantum Hall effect in a superfluid = He film

The quantum Hall effect is discussed for charged and neutral superfluid Fermi liquids with an order parameter like the one of 3He-A. Owing to the nontrivial structure of this order parameter a

Topological insulators and superconductors: tenfold way and dimensional hierarchy

It has recently been shown that in every spatial dimension there exist precisely five distinct classes of topological insulators or superconductors. Within a given class, the different topological
