We study the motion of a spin-½ particle in a scalar as well as a magnetic field within the framework of supersymmetric quantum mechanics. We also introduce the concept of shape invariant scalar and magnetic fields and it is shown that the problem admits exact analytical solutions when such fields are considered.

Supersymmetry of a spin particle on the real line
Abstract We study one dimensional supersymmetric (SUSY) quantum mechanics of a spin 1 2 particle moving in a rotating magnetic field and scalar potential. We also discuss SUSY breaking and it is
Supersymmetry of the Pauli equation in the presence of a magnetic monopole
Abstract It is shown that the Pauli hamiltonian for a spin 1 2 particle in the presence of a Dirac magnetic monopole possesses a dynamical conformal OSp(1,1) supersymmetry. Using this symmetry, the

Supersymmetry in Quantum Mechanics
We give some illustrations and interpretations of supersymmetry in quantum mechanics in simple models. We show that the value of 2 for the g factor of the electron expresses the presence of

Factorization of spin-dependent Hamiltonians
We generalize the formalism of the factorization method by introducing spin degrees of freedom, in addition to local potential terms. We compare this construction with conventional factorization
Dynamical Breaking of Supersymmetry
General conditions for dynamical supersymmetry breaking are discussed. Very small effects that would usually be ignored, such as instantons of a grand unified theory, might break supersymmetry at a
Matrix Hamiltonians: SUSY approach to hidden symmetries
A new supersymmetric approach to dynamical symmetries for matrix quantum systems is explored. In contrast to standard one-dimensional quantum mechanics where there is no role for an additional
