Topological Matter School, 08/2019, Donostia, San Sebastian (Spain)

Global (topological) properties and lattice symmetries are essential to recognize and classify states of matter known as topological phases. They entail exotic electronic behavior that have driven broad searches of novel materials that can host them. Topology plays a fundamental role in the classification of phases of matter. The different approaches to this problem, each emphasizing different aspects of topology, have led to a diverse variety of topological sates of matter, all displaying exotic electronic behavior rooted in their topological nature.

The main goal of the Topological Matter School 2019 (August 19-23 2019 Donostia – San Sebastián) is to cover material from different approaches to topological matter, showing their relations and differences, in particular in the presence of strong interactions. The school will feature lectures on topological classification, topological insulators, superconductors, and semimetals, the Integer and Fractional Quantum Hall states, anyons and topological order. Over one week, the school will provide extended lectures on these exciting topics by leading experts in both experiment and theory.

While the school is primarily aimed at instructing master and graduate students and young postdoctoral researchers, more senior scientists who want to acquaint themselves with the subject of the school are also welcome.
