Delicate topology protected by rotation symmetry: Crystalline Hopf insulators and beyond

Pontrjagin's seminal topological classification of two-band Hamiltonians in three momentum dimensions is hereby enriched with the inclusion of a crystallographic rotational symmetry. The enrichment is attributed to a new topological invariant which …

Electric-circuit realization of a hyperbolic drum

The Laplace operator encodes the behaviour of physical systems at vastly different scales, describing heat flow, fluids, as well as electric, gravitational, and quantum fields. A key input for the Laplace equation is the curvature of space. Here we …

Universal higher-order bulk-boundary correspondence of triple nodal points

Triple nodal points are degeneracies of energy bands in momentum space at which three Hamiltonian eigenstates coalesce at a single eigenenergy. For spinless particles, the stability of a triple nodal point requires two ingredients: rotation symmetry …
