Supersymmetry on the lattice: Geometry, Topology, and Spin Liquids

(Dated: In quantum mechanics, supersymmetry (SUSY) posits an equivalence between two elementary degrees of freedom, bosons and fermions. Here we show how this fundamental concept can be applied to



Topological Defects and Gapless Modes in Insulators and Superconductors

We develop a unified framework to classify topological defects in insulators and superconductors described by spatially modulated Bloch and Bogoliubov de Gennes Hamiltonians. We consider Hamiltonians

Topology of Quantum Gaussian States and Operations

As is well-known in the context of topological insulators and superconductors, short-range-correlated fermionic pure Gaussian states with fundamental symmetries are systematically classified by the

Topological phases of fermions in one dimension

In this paper we show how the classification of topological phases in insulators and superconductors is changed by interactions, in the case of one-dimensional systems. We focus on the

Periodic table for topological insulators and superconductors

Gapped phases of noninteracting fermions, with and without charge conservation and time-reversal symmetry, are classified using Bott periodicity. The symmetry and spatial dimension determines a

Supersymmetry in the Standard Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev Model.

The supersymmetry uncovered has a natural interpretation in terms of a one-dimensional topological phase supporting Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev boundary physics and has consequences away from the ground state, including in q-body dynamical correlation functions.

Non-Hermitian physics

A review is given on the foundations and applications of non-Hermitian classical and quantum physics. First, key theorems and central concepts in non-Hermitian linear algebra, including Jordan normal

Classification of magnetic frustration and metamaterials from topology

We study the relationship between the physics of topology and zero modes in frustrated systems and metama- terials. Zero modes that exist in topological matters are distinct from the ones arising

Classification of topological quantum matter with symmetries

Topological materials have become the focus of intense research in recent years, since they exhibit fundamentally new physical phenomena with potential applications for novel devices and quantum

Topological Phases of Non-Hermitian Systems

Recent experimental advances in controlling dissipation have brought about unprecedented flexibility in engineering non-Hermitian Hamiltonians in open classical and quantum systems. A particular

Bosonic and fermionic Gaussian states from Kähler structures

We show that bosonic and fermionic Gaussian states (also known as ``squeezed coherent states’’) can be uniquely characterized by their linear complex structure JJ which is a linear map on the
