Certain varieties of transition metal oxides possess both significant
interactions and strong spin-orbit coupling. In this talk I will
describe materials-motivated models that predict topological phases in
heterostructured and bulk transition metal oxides. We find Z2
topological insulators, Chern insulators, topological crystalline
insulators, and interaction-driven topological phases not adiabatically
connected to non-interacting topological phases.
