End modes in arrays of modulated Su--Schrieffer--Heeger chains
In this article, an extended and modulated version of the classic Su--Schrieffer--Heeger model is analysed. The nature of the end modes and the effect of cyclic modulation of the hopping parameters are studied in detail. The analysis is extended to the case of an array of linear chains described by the Su--Schrieffer--Heeger model, where the robustness of the end states for a large range of coupling strengths between the chains is found.
