Abstract.– For many years, topological materials have been the subject of great interest from condensed matter experimentalists and theorists. While there is a continued push to predict and measure new topological phenomena there exists a large class of “well-known” topological materials, or those that have been thoroughly characterized for their basic topological properties, that may serve as a testbed for new physics and applications by utilizing the inherent properties of these topological materials. To this end, recent work attempting to exploit the properties of topological materials has focused on the interactions between topological and magnetic materials yet little is understood about the physics of these interactions. In this talk, I will address some of the open problems associated with magnetic interactions in topological materials with a focus on understanding recent experimental results.
