Topological insulators belong to the new class of substances that have recently been called Dirac materials ([1] and references therein). These include very different objects in their structure, in particular the low- and high-temperature d-wave superconductors, superfluid phases 3Не, graphene, and two- and three-dimensional insulators [1].
