During the DPG Meeting of the Condensed Matter Section (SKM, September 4-9, 2022) in Regensburg there will be a symposium on Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter (SYQM) organized by ct.qmat.


Over the past two decades the mathematical concept of topology has emerged into a powerful tool for understanding and classifying quantum matter. The existence of global invariants in a physical system not only gives rise to novel types of quantum phases beyond Landau’s concept of broken symmetries and local order parameters, but may also lead to “topological protection” of otherwise rather delicate quantum states with respect to external perturbations, with obvious application potential for future quantum technologies. Topological physics is, in fact, ubiquitous. This symposium is dedicated to giving an overview of its unifying relevance in widely differing areas of condensed matter physics, ranging from electronic band structures to quantum magnetism to photonics devices. The talks will also cover the impact of topology in out-of-equilibrium systems.
