We find the angular Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov (FFLO) states (or the twisted kink crystals) in which a phase and an amplitude of a pair potential modulate simultaneously in a quasi-one-dimensional superconducting ring with a static Zeeman magnetic field applied on the ring and static Aharonov-Bohm magnetic flux penetrating the ring. The superconducting ring with magnetic flux produces a persistent current, whereas the Zeeman split of Fermi energy results in the spatial modulation of the…

Twisted kink crystal in holographic superconductor
Holographic superconductor model represents various inhomogeneous solutions with homogeneous sources. In this paper, we study inhomogeneous structures in the presence of the homogeneous current and
Spatially modulated vacua in a Lorentz-invariant scalar field theory
Spatial modulation has been studied for a long time in condensed matter, nuclear matter and quark matter, where the manifest Lorentz invariance is lost due to the finite density/temperature effects
Kink crystalline condensate and multi-kink solution in holographic superconductor
The theory of superconductivity can be divided into two groups depending on whether it has multi-kink solutions. For example, the BCS theory and the Gross-Neveu model have metastable multi-kink
Self-consistent large-N analytical solutions of inhomogeneous condensates in quantum ℂPN − 1 model
A bstractWe give, for the first time, self-consistent large-N analytical solutions of inhomogeneous condensates in the quantum ℂPN − 1 model in the large-N limit. We find a map from a set of gap
Four-Fermion Interaction Model on $\mathcal{M}^{D-1} \otimes S^1$
Four-fermion interaction models are often used as simplified models of interacting fermion fields with the chiral symmetry. The chiral symmetry is dynamically broken for a larger four-fermion

A bstractThe quantum ℂPN −1 model is in the confining (or unbroken) phase with a full mass gap in an infinite space, while it is in the Higgs (broken or deconfinement) phase accompanied with
Supersymmetry breaking and ghost Goldstino in modulated vacua
We discuss spontaneous supersymmetry (SUSY) breaking mechanisms by means of modulated vacua in four-dimensional ${\cal N} =1$ supersymmetric field theories. The SUSY breaking due to spatially

The various methods developed in the Nambu-Jona Lasinio model reveal the inhomogeneous phase structures and also yield new inhomogeneity solutions in the nonlinear sigma model owing to the duality.
The role of quantum recurrence in superconductivity, carbon nanotubes and related gauge symmetry breaking
Pure quantum phenomena are characterized by intrinsic recurrences in space and time. We use this intrinsic periodicity as a quantization condition to derive a heuristic description of the essential
