Stability of topological phases of matter (ENGLISH)

**( Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (Caltech))**

Spyridon MichalakisSpyridon Michalakis

Stability of topological phases of matter (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

The first lecture will be an introduction to quantum mechanics and a proof of Lieb-Robinson bounds for constant range interaction Hamiltonians. The second lecture will build on the first to prove a powerful lemma on the transformation of the interactions of generic gapped Hamiltonians to a new set of rapidly-decaying interactions that commute with the groundstate subspace. I call this "The Energy Filtering Lemma". Then, the third lecture will be on the construction of the Spectral Flow unitary (Quasi-adiabatic evolution) and its properties; in particular, the perfect simulation of the evolution of the groundstate subspace within a gapped path. I will end with a presentation of the recent result on the stability of the spectral gap for frustration-free Hamiltonians, highlighting how the previous three lectures fit into the proof.

Dirac families and 1-cocycles (ENGLISH)

**Pedram Hekmati**(Univ. Adelaide)Dirac families and 1-cocycles (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

Families of Dirac type operators, transforming covariantly under the projective action of the loop group $LG$, determine a class in twisted K-theory on compact Lie groups $G$. The loop group is the gauge group of a principal $G$-bundle over the circle and an interesting problem is to try to generalise the circle to a higher dimensional compact manifold. This is far from obvious and some of the difficulties can be modelled in a slightly simpler setting, by replacing $LG$ and gauge connections by objects which have only small differentiability in the Sobolev sense. In this talk, I will provide some background to this problem and explain how 1-cocycles naturally appear in this construction.
