Learnings and research diaries.
Placeholder. Need to find a better way to upload things.
Test: Gapped boundary theory of (2+1)d toric code in the continuum
Test: Dimensional analysis
Test: The Chinese translation of Memories of a Theoretical Physicist by Joseph Polchinski：《一名理论物理学家的回忆》.
Food for thought
Definitely not a complete list of anything - This collection is updated very irregularly.
Iqbal and McGreevy: Mean string field theory: Landau-Ginzburg theory for 1-form symmetries.
Thorngren, Vishwanath and Verresen: Intrinsically Gapless Topological Phases.
Kapustin and Seiberg: Coupling a QFT to a TQFT and duality
Beni Yoshida: Exotic topological order in fractal spin liquid.
A Weird collection
Here is a collection of non-mainstream works (for now) that I found intriguing.
Hyperbolic band theory https://arxiv.org/abs/2008.05489
Drilling a fractal set of holes in toric code https://meetings.aps.org/Meeting/MAR21/Session/A31.12
Using 2d materials to detect dark matter https://journals.aps.org/prd/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevD.98.115034
Dynamics: Euler class
- To be continued
