This approach relies on a
Klein bottle partition function (defined by twisting the usual partition
function in imaginary-time axis) and is relevant for situations where
non-chiral conformal field theories govern the bulk or edge physics (e.g. 1d
critical states and 2d time-reversal invariant topological insulators).
Benchmark results will be provided for several 1d critical models.
