Building on direct analogies with electronic matter, the concept of topological state has been successfully applied to a host of different physical systems as diverse as photonics metamaterials, geophysical fluids and mechanical structures. In this talk we focus on a special class of systems enjoying a sublattice or chiral symmetry such as bead-and-spring networks and the SSH model describing polyacetylene.
