This tutorial will take you through all the basic steps of using Z2Pack. Since Z2Pack is a Python library, you might need some knowledge of Python along the way. If you’ve never used Python before, you might want to check out the excellent Python Tutorial first.
I have also written a
book chapter for the “Topological Matter” book, which explains the physical background of Z2Pack in more detail.

- Installation and Setup
- Creating a Z2Pack System
- Calculating a Surface
