Topological Effects in Ultra-Cold Atoms

The engineering of Abelian and Non-Abelian fields in ultra-cold atoms allows for the study of topological phases of matter, including topological insulators and superfluids, for the emergence of exotic excitations, such as Majorana fermions, and for behaviors similar to quantum hall and fractional quantum hall systems. Furthermore, non-equilibrium properties of topological excitations or topological phases can be well studied in cold atoms, because the dynamics is very slow, allowing for real time imaging. Therefore, the time is ripe to have an international meeting that focuses on new research frontiers covering topological aspects of the physics of cold atoms, as much of the activity in this field supplements studies of topological effects in standard condensed matter systems, where the degree of control of tunable properties is much more limited.
