# The Bulk-Edge Correspondence for Disordered Chiral Chains

@article{Graf2018TheBC, title={The Bulk-Edge Correspondence for Disordered Chiral Chains}, author={Gian Michele Graf and Jacob Shapiro}, journal={Communications in Mathematical Physics}, year={2018}, volume={363}, pages={829-846} }

We study one-dimensional insulators obeying a chiral symmetry in the single-particle picture. The Fermi level is assumed to lie in a mobility gap. Topological indices are defined for infinite (bulk) or half-infinite (edge) systems, and it is shown that for a given Hamiltonian with nearest neighbor hopping the two indices are equal. We also give a new formulation of the index in terms of the Lyapunov exponents of the zero energy Schrödinger equation, which illustrates the conditions for a…
