We investigate the roles of symmetry and bulk-boundary correspondence in characterizing topological edge states in generalized Jackiw–Rebbi (JR) models. We show that time-reversal (T), charge-conjugation (C), parity (P), and discrete internal field rotation (\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{upgreek} \setlength{\oddsidemargin}{-69pt} \begin{document}$$Z_n$$\end…

Defect-induced solitons in double Peierls chain model

The generation and manipulation of topological solitons are of great importance in fundamental and practical aspects. Recently, chiral solitons and their topological operations have been



Particle-antiparticle duality and fractionalization of topological chiral solitons

It is discovered that topological chiral solitons are re-fractionalized into two subsolitons which also satisfy the PA duality, and support the topological $$\mathbb {Z}_4$$ Z 4 algebraic structures.

Topological features of ground states and topological solitons in generalized Su-Schrieffer-Heeger models using generalized time-reversal, particle-hole, and chiral symmetries

Topological phases and their topological features are enriched by the fundamental time-reversal, particle-hole, and chiral as well as crystalline symmetries. While one-dimensional (1D) generalized

Nonsymmorphic symmetry-required band crossings in topological semimetals

We show that for two-band systems nonsymmorphic symmetries may enforce the existence of band crossings in the bulk, which realize Fermi surfaces of reduced dimensionality. We find that these

Soliton confinement in polyacetylene due to interchain coupling

The energy involved in the relative ordering of the dimerization patterns of neighboring ${(\mathrm{CH})}_{x}$ chains is evaluated with a model where the coupling is due to the interchain hopping of

Colloquium : Topological insulators

Topological insulators are electronic materials that have a bulk band gap like an ordinary insulator but have protected conducting states on their edge or surface. These states are possible due to

Observation of the topological soliton state in the Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model

The Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model, which captures the most striking transport properties of the conductive organic polymer trans-polyacetylene, provides perhaps the most basic model system supporting topological excitations, and quantum simulation of this model and observation of the localized topological soliton state are reported on.

A two-leg Su-Schrieffer-Heeger chain with glide reflection symmetry

The Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) model lays the foundation of many important concepts in quantum topological matters. Since it tells one that topological states may be distinguished by abelian

Z 2 topology in nonsymmorphic crystalline insulators: Möbius twist in surface states

It has been known that an anti-unitary symmetry such as time-reversal or charge conjugation is needed to realize Z2 topological phases in non-interacting systems. Topological insulators and

Nonstandard symmetry classes in mesoscopic normal-superconducting hybrid structures

Normal-conducting mesoscopic systems in contact with a superconductor are classified by the symmetry operations of time reversal and rotation of the electron’s spin. Four symmetry classes are

Chiral solitons in a coupled double Peierls chain

It is reported that the 1D topological edge states, solitons, of the charge density wave system of indium atomic wires self-assembled on a silicon surface have chirality.
