We investigate spin-one color superconductivity of a single quark flavor using the Ginzburg--Landau theory. First we examine the classic analysis of Bailin and Love and show that by restricting to the so-called inert states, it misses the true ground state in a part of the phase diagram. This suggests the use of the more general, noninert states, in particular, within three-flavor quark matter where the color neutrality constraint imposes stress on the spin-one pairing and may disfavor the…

Symmetry breaking patterns and collective modes of spin-one color superconductors
Abstract Spin-one color superconductor is a viable candidate phase of dense matter in the interiors of compact stars. Its low-energy excitations will influence the transport properties of such matter
Spin-one color superconductors: collective modes and effective Lagrangian
Abstract We investigate the collective excitations in spin-one color superconductors. We classify the Nambu–Goldstone modes by the pattern of spontaneous symmetry breaking, and then use the
Some aspects of color superconductivity: an introduction
A pedagogical introduction to color superconductivity in the weak coupling limit is given. The focus is on the basic tools of thermal field theory necessary to compute observables of color
Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking and Nambu-Goldstone Bosons in Quantum Many-Body Systems
This work focuses on manifestations of spontaneously broken symmetries in systems that are not Lorentz invariant, which include both nonrelativistic systems as well as relativistic system at nonzero density, providing a self-contained review of the properties of spontaneously break symmetry specific to such theories.
Chiral random matrix theory for single-flavor spin-one Cooper pairing
We propose a new non-Hermitian chiral random matrix model that describes single-flavor spin-one Cooper pairing of quarks. For three colors the model shows spontaneous breaking of color
Interweaving chiral spirals
Abstract We elaborate how to construct interweaving chiral spirals in ( 2 + 1 ) dimensions, defined as a superposition of chiral spirals oriented in different directions. We divide a two-dimensional
Some Recent Progress on Quark Pairings in Dense Quark and Nuclear Matter
In this review article we give a brief overview on some recent progress in quark pairings in dense quark/nuclear matter mostly developed in the past five years. We focus on following aspects in
