The study of topological superconductivity is largely based on the analysis of mean-field Hamiltonians that violate particle number conservation and have only short-range interactions. Although this approach has been very successful, it is not clear that it captures the topological properties of real superconductors, which are described by number-conserving Hamiltonians with long-range interactions. To address this issue, we study topological superconductivity directly in the number-conserving setting.
We study the two point correlation function of a local operator on an \(n\)-sheeted replica manifold corresponding to the half-space in the vacuum state of a conformal field theory. We calculate the Renyi transform in \(2d\) conformal field theories, and use it to extract the off-diagonal elements of (modular) ETH.
