Topological insulators and free fermions: from Hermitian to non-Hermitian

    Project: Research

    Project Details


    The development of smart electronic devices and materials is a major challenge for the growth of Australias technology sector. Particularly important among electronic devices are topological insulators, which are materials that are insulating in their interior but can support the flow of electricity on their surface. This project aims to develop new mathematical models for topological insulators. The project will also develop the application of powerful data analysis techniques to detect transitions between insulating and non-insulating phases. When fully operational, the data analysis approach can be applied to fully understand and explore a wide class of topological insulators. The project will build on Australia's outstanding international reputation in the mathematical sciences and provide a unique training ground for students and young researchers of relevance to emerging quantum t
