I will look at two cases of the interplay of geometry (curvature) and topology:
(1) 3D Topological metals: how to understand their surface "Fermi arcs" in terms of their emergent conservation laws and the Streda formula for the non-quantized anomalous Hall effect.
(2) The Hall viscosity tensor in the FQHE as a local field, and its Gaussian-curvature response that allows local compression or expansion of the fluid to accommodate substrate inhomogeneity.
