In this dissertation, we have studied the effect of disorder and interaction on some classes of topological superconductors and semimetals. In the superconducting phase, we studied various phases and critical phenomena that arise by the effect of disorder on the surface states of topological superconductors with different and higher winding numbers. In particular, we investigated topological protection of topological superconductors with effective spin-3/2 systems. Moreover, we have shown that the almost all the nite-energy states at the surface of topological superconductors in the presence of disorder are also protected (delocalized) and sit at the spin quantum plateau transition point without ne tuning. Finally, through the Floquet formalism we showed that the irradiated Luttinger semimetal is a suitable platform for engineering various Weyl semimetals, from Type-I to type-II as well as single and double Weyl semimetals.
