# Fluctuation-induced magnetization dynamics and criticality at the interface of a topological insulator with a magnetically ordered layer

We consider a theory for a two-dimensional interacting conduction electron system with strong spin-orbit coupling on the interface between a topological insulator and the magnetic (ferromagnetic or antiferromagnetic) layer. For the ferromagnetic case we derive the Landau-Lifshitz equation, which features a contribution proportional to a fluctuation-induced electric field obtained by computing the topological (Chern-Simons) contribution from the vacuum polarization. We also show that fermionic quantum fluctuations reduce the critical temperature $\tilde T c$ at the interface relative to the critical temperature $T c$ of the bulk, so that in the interval \$\tilde T c\leq T
