about

This book contains lecture notes by world experts on one of the most rapidly growing fields of research in physics. Topological quantum phenomena are being uncovered at unprecedented rates in novel material systems. The consequences are far reaching, from the possibility of carrying currentsand performing computations without dissipation of energy, to the possibility of realizing platforms for topological quantum computation. The pedagogical lectures contained in this book are an excellent introduction to this blooming field. The lecture notes are intended for graduate students oradvanced undergraduate students in physics and mathematics who want to immerse in this exciting XXI century physics topic.This Les Houches Summer School presents an overview of this field, along with a sense of its origins and its placement on the map of fundamental physics advancements. The School comprised a set of basic lectures (part 1) aimed at a pedagogical introduction of the fundamental concepts, which wasaccompanied by more advanced lectures (part 2) covering individual topics at the forefront of today's research in condensed-matter physics.
