Modern Aspects of Quantum Physics and Topology The content will revolve around the modern applications of quantum topology to quantum information and condensed matter, with some comments about the ‘prehistory’ of these new developments. I will use very general and conceptual ideas with little technical details in the first half or so. The main topics will be on what topology tries to solve in quantum information and what new quantum states of matter are consequences of these applications, namely: topological orders and topological insulators/superconductors. I will make emphasis in their similarities and differences. I will use plain words and basic/fundamental facts. I will introduce modern applications of thermal and noise effects on topological systems as an example.
