Introduction This book offers a theoretical description of topological matter in terms of effective field theories, and in particular topological field theories, focusing on two main topics: topological superconductors and topological insulators. Notes on String Topology. String topology is the study of algebraic and differential topological properties of spaces of paths and loops in manifolds. Topics covered includes: Intersection theory in loop spaces, The cacti operad, String topology as field theory, A Morse theoretic viewpoint, Brane topology. These are notes made by a graduate student for graduate and undergrad- uate students. The intention is purely educational. They are a review of one the most beautiful elds on Physics and Mathematics, the Quantum Field Theory, and its mathematical extension, Topological Field Theories. One then has to "deframe" in order to arrive at the usual knot invariants. There is also a distinction to be made between "topological field theory" and "cohomological field theory", the latter computing invariants once a class of metrics (say, fixing the holonomy) has been chosen. $\endgroup$ – José Figueroa-O'Farrill Jan 4 '10 at
The book begins with simple concepts such as Berry phases, Dirac fermions, Hall conductance and its link to topology, and the Hofstadter problem of lattice electrons in a magnetic field. It moves on to explain topological phases of matter such as Chern insulators, two- and three-dimensional topological insulators, and Majorana p-wave wires. Dedekind Domains.
