Stabilizing Chern and fractional Chern insulators — •Adolfo G. Grushin, Johannes Motruk, and Frank Pollmann — Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, Dresden

The experimental realization of Chern insulators (CI) and fractional Chern insulators (FCI), zero field lattice analogues of the integer and fractional Hall effects respectively, is still a major open problem in condensed matter. For the former, it was proposed that short range interactions at the mean-field level can drive a trivial insulator into a CI. For the latter, the effect of band dispersion and sizes of the single-particle gaps with respect to the interaction strength have been argued to be important to stabilize an FCI state. In this talk we will examine the robustness and fate of these statements both with exact diagonalization and infinite density matrix renormalization group (iDMRG).
