Periodically driven ultracold atomic systems can be used to engineer topologically nontrivial phases, and can give rise to anomalous topological phases with chiral edge modes in the presence of a trivial bulk (AFTI). We have investigated the role of additional quenched disorder and two-particle interactions on this state. Within an exact diagonalization study we have found signatures of the anomalous Floquet Anderson insulator (AFAI) phase within an experimentally realized model by calculating several indicators [1]. It supports quantized charge pumping through chiral edge states, while the bulk states remain completely localized. Moreover, we have developed an efficient new algorithm for calculating higher-order Chern numbers [2].
