    Topological states of matter are phases of matter that go beyond the Landau symmetry-breaking theory, which are characterized by topological invariants and topological edge states. Physicist David J. Thouless, in collaboration with F. Duncan, M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz, unveiled these unique states of matter, winning the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016.
