TopDyn Workshop

Scope of the Workshop

Topology and Dynamics unite key fields of research that have recently spurred intense scientific interest but also cover the key functionalities of devices that require stable properties combined with ultra-fast and/or low power operation. The concept of topology plays an important role in nature and has implications in many fields of science as diverse as cosmology, particle physics, quantum manybody systems, superfluidity, liquid crystals, and metal-lurgy. The topology of a system is described by a topological charge, which emerges from the winding of an order parameter that lives in a space characterizing the eigenstates of the system. Topological properties of states of diverse nature now underpin such branches of applied science as topological electronics, skyrmion-based spintronics or quantum computing. This virtual workshop will provide an international forum to discuss about those topics and to identify potential future challenges. This workshop is organized with the TopDyn project ( funded in July 2019 as a collaboration of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern and Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research Mainz.
