This project report elaborates condensed matter system of topological superconductors and their link to Majorana fermions. It pedagogically reviews the fundamental concepts and theory by creating a doorway from topology and superconductivity to topological superconductivity. A concise comparison of Dirac and Majorana fermions gives an insight to these two classes of fermions. Bogoliubov-de Gennes (BdG) Hamiltonian via mean-field theory is described in detail and elaborate by discussing the simplest case of spinless one-dimensional p-wave topological superconductor.
