Special seminar
Z-3 graded generalization of Dirac's equation and modified color dynamics
Richard Kerner

Sacta-Rashi Building for Physics (54), room 207
Abstract: We propose a generalization od Dirac's equation including the discrete Z3 symmetry in order to incorporate the colour variable along with spin and charge, both representing Z2-symmetries. The resulting discrete symmetry group is Z3 x Z2 x Z2, and the corresponding wave functions have 12 components. The corresponding Dirac operator is a 12 x 12 matrix, and diagonalizes only at sixth power, leading to a sixth-order dispersion relations for energy-momentum. The Lorentz invariance is recovered via introduction of extra mutiplets, i.e. flavours and families. The gauge fields reproduce the usual Standard Model, and confinement is obtained via algebraical exclusion principle.

Insulating phases of topological superconductors - the Majorana-Zero Modes point of view

Sacta-Rashi Building for Physics (54), room 207
Abstract: I will discussed few aspects of topological superconductor - insulator transitions. I'll argue that the insulating phases of topological superconductors have unique properties that are dual to several spin liquid phases supporting exotic non-Abelian particles. We will discuss the stabilization of these spin liquids by interactions between Majorana-zero modes in a Cooper box and their possible utilization for universal quantum computation.

Physics Colloquium
Probing new physics with long-lived particles
Abner Soffer
Tue, 28 May 2019, 15:30
Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science & Technology (51), room 015
Abstract: Despite the amazing success of the Standard Model of particle physics, its glaring omissions clearly indicate the existence of a more fundamental theory, dubbed "new physics". Searching for new, long-lived particles is a particularly sensitive way to probe new physics in an interesting region of phase space. I will describe the physics of long-lived particles, and discuss recent ideas and opportunities in existing and future experiments.
Refreshments are served at 15:15.
