In the fermionic systems with topologically stable Fermi points, the emergent two-component Weyl fermions appear. We propose the topological classification of these fermions based on the two invariants composed of the two-component Green’s function. We define these invariants using the Wigner–Weyl formalism also in case of essentially inhomogeneous systems. In the case where values of these invariants are minimal (±1), we deal with emergent relativistic symmetry. The emergent gravity appears, and our classification of Weyl fermions gives rise to the classification of vielbein. Transformations between emergent relativistic Weyl fermions of different types correspond to parity conjugation, time reversal, and charge conjugation.
