“On the mathematical theory of graphene and its artificial analogues” Professor Michael I Weinstein, Columbia University Graphene is a two-dimensional material made up of a single atomic layer of carbon atoms arranged in honeycomb pattern. Many of its remarkable electronic properties, e.g. quasi-particles (wave-packets) that propagate as massless relativistic particles and topologically protected edge states, are closely related to the spectral properties of the underlying single-electron Hamiltonian: -Laplacian + V(x),where V(x) is a potential with the symmetries of a hexagonal tiling of the plane.
