Our article on non-hermitian band touching for strongly correlated systems has been published in PTEP (Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics), "Exceptional band touching for strongly correlated systems in equilibrium", by Tsuneya Yoshida, Robert Peters, Norio Kawakami, Yasuhiro Hatsugai. Focusing on the non-hermitian topological phenomena for the equilibrium Green function of correlated electrons, a compact review of the exceptonal band touching that is intrinsic for non-hermitian matrices is described as well. Have a look at.

Mass points on a periodic lattice connected by springs (spring-mass model) is a simple mechanical system described by an energy-momentum dispersion, that is a macroscopic phonon. We hereby discuss it on the Lieb lattice with chiral symmetry. It possesses extra degeneracy at some momentum compared with well investigated electronic systems (due to extra degree of freedoms). Have a look at "Topological Modes Protected by Chiral and Two-Fold Rotational Symmetry in a Spring-Mass Model with a Lieb Lattice Structure", J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 89, 083702 (2020) by Hiromasa Wakao, Tsuneya Yoshida , Tomonari Mizoguchi , and Yasuhiro Hatsugai. Also arXiv:2005.00752.

Linear electric circuits are one more non-quantum platform of the topological phenomena such as bulk-edge correspondence we have been working around. Then its non-hermitian extension with/without symmetry is surely of the important targets. We have here discussed mirror skin effects of the non-hermitian electric circuit where the boundary states dominate on the mirror symmetric lines. Also possible realization is proposed. Have a look at "Mirror skin effect and its electric circuit simulation" by Tsuneya Yoshida, Tomonari Mizoguchi, and Yasuhiro Hatsugai, Phys. Rev. Research 2, 022062(R) (2020) (Open access).

We have been proposing a systematic construction scheme of flat bands by molecular orbitals (MO). Now it is extended for systems with non trivial topology where non trivial bands with non zero Chern numer may cross the flat bands although the Chern number of the flat band itself is vanishing. We have presented a various other examples such as the Haldane model and the Kane-Mele model of the MOs'. Have a look at Systematic construction of topological flat-band models by molecular-orbital representation" by Tomonari Mizoguchi and Yasuhiro Hatsugai, Phys. Rev. B 101, 235125 (2020) also arXiv:2001.10255.

Topological phases are everywhere. Higher order topological phases are realized in a spring mass model on a Kagome lattice. Berry phases quantized in a unit of 2π/3 predict localized vibration modes near the corner of the system. This quantization is due to a symmetry protection. Have a look at our paper in Physical Review B. Most of the topological phenomena are realized in a mechanical analogue, which are much accessible without any real high-tech. Of course, it is still a non-trivial task.
