We complete a classification of topological phases and their topological defects in crystalline insulators and superconductors. We consider topological phases and defects described by noninteracting Bloch and Bogoliubov–de Gennes Hamiltonians that support additional order-two spatial symmetry, besides any of 10 classes of symmetries defined by time-reversal symmetry and particle-hole symmetry. The additional order-two spatial symmetry we consider is general and it includes Z 2 global symmetry… 
Bulk-boundary-defect correspondence at disclinations in rotation-symmetric topological insulators and superconductors
We study a link between the ground-state topology and the topology of the lattice via the presence of anomalous states at disclinations -- topological lattice defects that violate a rotation symmetry

Abstract We discuss recent advances in the study of topological insulators protected by spatial symmetries by reviewing three representative, theoretical examples. In three dimensions (3D), these
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
Classification of crystalline topological semimetals with an application to Na3Bi
Topological phases can not only be protected by internal symmetries (e.g., time-reversal symmetry), but also by crystalline symmetries, such as reflection or rotation symmetry. Recently a complete
Second-order topological insulators and superconductors with an order-two crystalline symmetry
Second-order topological insulators and superconductors have a gapped excitation spectrum in bulk and along boundaries, but protected zero modes at corners of a two-dimensional crystal or protected
Topological states from topological crystals
TLDR
This work explicitly enumerates all inequivalent topological crystals for noninteracting time-reversal symmetric electronic insulators with spin-orbit coupling and any one of the 230 space groups, which gives topological crystalline insulators a full classification.
New classes of three-dimensional topological crystalline insulators: Nonsymmorphic and magnetic
We theoretically predict two new classes of three-dimensional topological crystalline insulators (TCIs), which have an odd number of unpinned surface Dirac cones protected by crystal symmetries. The
Geometry, topology, and response in condensed matter systems
Topological order provides a new paradigm to view phases of matter. Unlike conventional symmetry breaking order, these states are not distinguished by different patterns of symmetry breaking, instead
