Conjugate linear perturbations of Dirac operators and Majorana fermions

  title={Conjugate linear perturbations of Dirac operators and Majorana fermions},
  author={'Akos Nagy},
We study a canonical class of perturbations of Dirac operators that are defined in any dimension and on any Hermitian Clifford module bundle. These operators generalize the 2-dimensional Jackiw–Rossi operator, which describes electronic excitations on topological superconductors. We also describe the low energy spectrum of these operators on complete surfaces, under mild hypotheses. 


Perturbations of Dirac operators
Abstract We study general conditions under which the computations of the index of a perturbed Dirac operator D s = D + s Z localize to the singular set of the bundle endomorphism Z in the
Vortices in holomorphic line bundles over closed Kähler manifolds
We apply a modified Yang-Mills-Higgs functional to unitary bundles over closed Kähler manifolds and study the equations which govern the global minima. The solutions represent vortices in holomorphic

From the properties of the solutions to Bogoliubov-de Gennes equations in the vortex core, the non-Abelian statistics of vortices are derived identical to that for the Moore-Read (Pfaffian) quantum Hall state.
Vortex scattering
The geodesic approximation to vortex dynamics in the critically coupled abelian Higgs model is studied. The metric on vortex moduli space is shown to be Kähler and a scheme for its numerical
Zero modes of the vortex-fermion system
Abstract Electric charge of a fermion that is coupled only to the gauge field of an abelian vortex need not be quantized, in contrast the situation for a magnetic monopole field. Correspondingly,

Quantizing Majorana fermions in a superconductor
A Dirac-type matrix equation governs surface excitations in a topological insulator in contact with an s-wave superconductor. The order parameter can be homogenous or vortex valued. In the homogenous
Analytic aspects of periodic instantons
The main result is a computation of the Nahm transform of a SU(2)-instanton over R × T 3, called spatially-periodic instanton. It is a singular monopole over T 3, a solution to the Bogomolny
Equivariant Brill-Noether theory for elliptic operators and super-rigidity of $J$-holomorphic maps
The space of Fredholm operators of fixed index is stratified by submanifolds according to the dimension of the kernel. Geometric considerations often lead to questions about the intersections of
