A type of quasi-particles called Majorana fermions have been predicted to occur in vortices of topological superconductors. In this presentation a background in topological band theory, and its application to superconductors is presented. Preliminary results on what possible signatures of Majorana fermions can look like when probing the band structure or LDOS with techniques such as ARPES and STM is also presented.
