4 What is topological superconductor ? Topological superconductorsBulk:gapped state withnon-zero topological #Boundary:gapless state with Majorana condition
5 Bulk: gapped by the formation of Cooper pair In the ground state, the one-particle states below the fermi energy are fully occupied.
6 Topological # can be defined by the occupied wave function empty bandoccupied bandEntire momentum spaceHilbert space of occupied stateTopological # = “winding number”

26 SummaryTopological SCs are a new state of matter in condensed matter physics.Majorana fermions are naturally realized as gapless boundary states.Topological SCs are realized in spin-triplet (odd-parity) SCs, but with SO interaction, they can be realized in spin-singlet SC as well.文献を書く
