  • Physics Stack Exchange Questions and Answers

    I find particularly interesting the Physics Stack Exchange forum since it allows for the discussion of all kinds of physics questions at a very good level. In fact, one can realize how badly some concepts are understood by trying to answer some of these questions.

  • Derivation of Expression for Berry curvature in a two-level system (of particular interest for topological insulators)
  • Chern-Simons term: Integrating out Gapped fermions in 2+1 dimensions coupled to external gauge field
