Berry's Phase, $\operatorname{TKN}^2$ Integers and All That: My work on Topology in Condensed Matter Physics 1983-1993

I will give an overview of my work on topological methods in condensed matter physics almost 40 years ago. Include will be Homotopy and $\operatorname{TKN}^2$ integers, holonomy and Berry's phase and quarternions and Berry's phase for Fermions. If time allows, I'll discuss supersymmetry and pairs of projections.
