In this work, a complete homotopic interpretation on the periodic table of topological insulators and superconductors has been derived by establishing the loop sequence of the corresponding classifying spaces. In our approach, each classifying spaces has been regarded as a fiber bundle defined on one point, following that the loop relationship between the classifying spaces in the same symmetric class has been built and proved. Meanwhile, the loop sequence between the classifying spaces with…
