We investigate the most general form of the one-dimensional Dirac Hamiltonian HD in the presence of scalar and pseudoscalar potentials. To seek embedding of supersymmetry (SUSY) in it, as an alternative procedure to directly employing the intertwining relations, we construct a quasi-Hamiltonian K, defined as the square of HD, to explore the consequences. We show that the diagonal elements of K under a suitable approximation reflects the presence of a superpotential thus proving a useful guide…

Equivalent non-rational extensions of the harmonic oscillator, their ladder operators and coherent states

In this work, we generate a family of quantum potentials that are non-rational extensions of the harmonic oscillator. Such a family can be obtained via two different but equivalent supersymmetric

We present a new approach to study the one-dimensional Dirac equation in the background of a position-dependent mass m. Taking the Fermi velocity v f to be a local variable, we explore the resulting



Supersymmetric Dirac Hamiltonians in ($$1+1$$) dimensions revisited

The most general Dirac Hamiltonians in $$(1+1)$$ ( 1 + 1 ) dimensions are revisited under the requirement to exhibit a supersymmetric structure. It is found that supersymmetry allows either

The realization of supersymmetric quantum mechanics is demonstrated in the standard first-order Dirac equation describing a massless Dirac particle in a magnetic field and the superalgebra osp(1/2) obtained is discussed.

Planar massless fermions in Coulomb and Aharonov-Bohm potentials

Solutions to the Dirac equation are constructed for a massless charged fermion in Coulomb and Aharonov--Bohm potentials in 2+1 dimensions. The Dirac Hamiltonian on this background is singular and
