Journées de Physique Mathémathique LYON - TOPOLOGICAL INSULATORS

The slides of the lectures & seminars can be now downloaded

from the Program page


There will be three mini series of lectures and three seminars for a mixed audience of mathematical physicists.

The speakers are:

  • David CARPENTIER, Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon: Topological Insulator Order as an Obstruction Illustrated on Simple Lattice Models
  • Krzysztof GAWEDZKI, Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon: Symmetry classes of topological insulators and K-theory
  • Gian-Michele GRAF, ETH Zurich: Invariants and bulk-edge duality in topological insulators
  • Terry LORING, University of New Mexico: K-theory, localization and generalized Wannier functions
  • Andreas SCHNYDER, Max Planck Institut Stuttgart: Physical and experimental aspects of topological insulators and superconductors
  • Jean-Louis TU, Lorraine University, Metz: KR-theory
