This proposal outlines theoretical research into newly discovered and newly predicted quantum phases of matter, particularly topological superfluids, liquid helium-three, and unconventional superconductors, including candidates for topological superconductivity, strontium ruthenate and uranium platinum-three, and heavy electron materials exhibiting coexistent ferromagnetism and superconductivity. The proposed research is focused on investigations of topological condensed matter out of equilibrium, with the goal of predicting and interpreting experimental observations on, and signatures of, topological quantum phases of matter under non-equilibrium conditions. Non-equilibrium transport equations, quantum statistical field theory and computational methods will be developed for inhomogeneous quantum states confined on edges, surfaces and domain walls of topological superfluids and superconductors.
