Gauge theory of topological phases of matter
We study the response of quantum many-body systems to coupling some of their degrees of freedom to external gauge fields. This serves to understand the current Green functions and transport
The history of the discovery of electron spin and the Pauli principle and the mathematics of spin and quantum statistics are reviewed. Pauli’s theory of the spinning electron and some of its many

Starting with a description of the motivation underlying the analysis presented in this paper and a brief survey of the chiral anomaly, I proceed to review some basic elements of the theory of the
Anomaly Non-renormalization in Interacting Weyl Semimetals
Universality is the counterpart of the Adler–Bardeen non-renormalization property of the chiral anomaly for the infrared emergent description, which is proved here in the presence of a lattice and at a non-perturbative level.
Edge States Scattering and Universality in Quantum Hall Systems
We consider the edge transport properties of interacting quantum Hall systems on a cylinder, in the infinite volume and zero temperature limit. We prove that the edge conductance is universal, and
Exact diagonalization studies of quantum simulators
Understand and tame complex quantum mechanical systems to build quantum technologies is one of the most important scientific endeavour nowadays. In this effort, Atomic, molecular and Optical systems

Spin Hall effects are a collection of phenomena, resulting from spin-orbit coupling, in which an electrical current flowing through a sample can lead to spin transport in a perpendicular direction
Classification of abelian spin Chern-Simons theories
We derive a simple classification of quantum spin Chern-Simons theories with gauge group T=U(1)^N. While the classical Chern-Simons theories are classified by an integral lattice the quantum theories
Universal Edge Transport in Interacting Hall Systems
We study the edge transport properties of 2d interacting Hall systems, displaying single-mode chiral edge currents. For this class of many-body lattice models, including for instance the interacting
Theory of Spin Hall Effects in Semiconductors
Spin Hall effects are a collection of phenomena, resulting from spin-orbit coupling, in which an electrical current flowing through a sample can lead to spin transport in a perpendicular direction

The effective gauge field action of a system of non-relativistic electrons
We consider a system of free, non-relativistic electrons at zero temperature and positive density, coupled to an arbitrary, external electromagnetic vector potential,A. By integrating out the

Topological BF theories in 3 and 4 dimensions
In this paper we discuss topological BF theories in 3 and 4 dimensions. Observables are associated to ordinary knots and links (in 3 dimensions) and to 2‐knots (in 4 dimensions). The vacuum
