Correlated topological insulator in a triangular lattice

This paper investigates the possibility of a correlated topological insulator called a magnetic Chern insulator in the Kondo lattice model on a triangular lattice. Using variational Monte Carlo simulations, the authors find a noncoplanar triple-Q magnetic ordered phase becomes the ground state at quarter filling for an intermediate Kondo coupling strength. They calculate the many-body Chern number based on polarization operators, showing this triple-Q state has a quantized Chern number of 1, confirming it as a many-body Chern insulator.
