The Aharonov-Bohm effect is often called "topological." But it seems no more topological than magnetostatics, electrostatics or Newton-Poisson gravity (or just about any radiation, propagation from a source). I distinguish between two senses of "topological." © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
