In this talk, I will introduce the Integer Quantum Hall Effect, focusing on the topological invariants associated with the Hall conductivity and the role of disorder in this phenomenon. I will discuss the disorder-induced phase transition, and the potential mechanisms at play. Additionally, I will present results from calculations of conductivity, the Thouless-Kohmoto-Nightingale-den Nijs (TKNN) invariant, and localization length. My aim is to understand whether the system remains insensitive to changes in boundary conditions across the phase transition, thereby testing the validity of the TKNN invariant in this context.
