quantum material

quantum algorithms:

**Topological Physics** – Phenomena in physics controlled by the topology (often: the homotopy theory) of the physical system.

General theory:

In electromagnetism:

In solid state physics, by a *quantum material* one means – broadly and somewhat vaguely – a phase of matter whose properties are deeply controlled by quantum physics and often by topology. Prime examples are superconductors and, more recently and more prominently, topological phases of matter controlled by topological order, such as topological insulators; also quasicrystals. A concrete example is graphene.
