# Introduction
# Online course on topology in condensed matter
+++
This is a open online course on topology in condensed matter.
Initially developed for the [edX platform](https://www.edx.org/course/topology-in-condensed-matter-tying-quantum-knots) in 2015, its development continues here.
## Course structure
After following this course you will:
- Discover how topological concepts manifest in condensed matter systems
- Get an overview of different research directions and important developments
- Learn to combine the relevant math with simulations and physical arguments to improve your understanding
Each section consists of several relatively self-contained topics, each introduced and summarized by an expert.
Go right to the [introduction](w0_background/intro) for in-depth information about the course.
