Topological insulators are a striking example of materials in which topological invariants are manifested in robustness against perturbations. Topology has emerged as an abstract, yet surprisingly powerful, new paradigm for controlling the flow of an excitation, e.g. the flow of electrons or light. This interdisciplinary Focus Session aims at discussing the latest experimental and theoretical results in the fast developing field of topological phenomena in synthetic matter. The recent merging of topology and cold atoms, photonics, mechanics and many more fields promises a considerable impact on these disciplines. We bring together leading theoretical and experimental experts from the fields of topological phenomena in synthetic matter to discuss recent progress and interdisciplinary synergy emerging at the interface of these fields. Furthermore, we give an overview to young scientists of exciting possibilities of interdisciplinary research in these fields with the special focus on the practical applications of fundamental science.
