We present a new mechanism of fluctuation-induced Nambu–Goldstone bosons in a scalar field theory of Higgs–Josephson systems. We consider a simple scalar field model with rotational symmetry. When there is an interaction which violates the rotational symmetry, the Nambu–Goldstone bosons become massive and massless bosons are concealed. We present a model where the massive boson becomes a massless boson as a result of the perturbative fluctuation. In our model the -symmetry associated with the…

Nambu-Goldstone-Leggett and Higgs Modes in Multi-Condensate Superconductors
Multi-condensate superconductors have multiple excitation modes. Among them, the Nambu-Goldstone mode, Leggett mode, and Higgs mode are important in superconductors. The dispersion relations and mass

Massless and quantized modes of kinks in the phase space of superconducting gaps
Abstract We investigated quantized modes of kinks in the phase space of superconducting gaps in a superconductor with multiple gaps. The kink is described by the sine-Gordon model in a two-gap

Multi-Phase Physics of Multi-Condensate Superconductivity
Multi-gap superconductors exhibit interesting properties. In N-gap superconductors, the U(1)N phase invariance is spontaneously broken. When N is greater than 2, N ≥ 3, several interesting phenomena

Emergence of an Interband Phase Difference and Its Consequences in Multiband Superconductors
Since the idea of a topology based on the interband phase difference was proposed for multiband superconductors without degenerate superconducting components, many feasible and interesting
Current-induced massless mode of the interband phase difference in two-band superconductors
Abstract There is a current-induced massless mode of an interband phase difference in two-band superconductors. For a thin wire, the externally applied current always invokes a finite interband phase

We examine fundamental properties of Green’s functions of Nambu-Goldstone and Higgs modes in superconductors with multiple order parameters. Nambu-Goldstone and Higgs modes are determined once the
Mechanism of High-Temperature Superconductivity in Correlated-Electron Systems
It is very important to elucidate the mechanism of superconductivity for achieving room temperature superconductivity. In the first half of this paper, we give a brief review on mechanisms of


Spontaneous Symmetry Breakdown without Massless Bosons
We examine a simple relativistic theory of two scalar fields, first discussed by Goldstone, in which as a result of spontaneous breakdown of U(1) symmetry one of the scalar bosons is massless, in
