The ZN Berry phase is defined in a N−1-dimensional parameter space of local gauge twists, which we call the “synthetic Brillouin zone,” and an appropriate choice of an integration path consistent with the symmetry of the system ensures exact quantization of the Berry phase. We demonstrate the usefulness of the ZN Berry phase by studying two 1D models of bosons, SU(3) and SU(4) Affleck-Kennedy-Lieb-Tasaki models, where topological phase transitions are captured by Z3 and Z4 Berry phases, respectively. We find that the exact quantization of the ZN Berry phase at the topological transitions arises from a gapless band structure (e.g., Dirac cones or nodal lines) in the synthetic Brillouin zone.journal articleAmerican Physical Society2018-06application/pdfPhysical review letters241200031-9007AA00773679https://tsukuba.repo.nii.ac.jp/record/47730/files/PRL_120-24-247202.pdfeng10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.247202© 2018 American Physical Society
