## Berry Phase

Foucault pendulum. It precesses it’s plane as it is transported around the earth. Proportional to solid angle it sweeps out. Adiabatic changes to systems can induce subtle effects. Chern numbers geometric / berry phase

## Topological defects

This is kind of another thing, but it does classify as topological physics
