Physical symmetries and gauge choices in the Landau problem

Due to a special nature of the Landau problem, in which the magnetic field is uniformly spreading over the whole two-dimensional plane, there necessarily exist three conserved quantities, i.e. two

Energy and Magnetic Moment of a Quantum Charged Particle in Time-Dependent Magnetic and Electric Fields of Circular and Plane Solenoids

TLDR
Explicit results are found in the cases of the sudden jump of magnetic field, the parametric resonance, the adiabatic evolution, and for several specific functions B(t), when solutions can be expressed in terms of elementary or hypergeometric functions.

Role of guiding center in Landau level system and mechanical and pseudo orbital angular momenta

There is an interesting but not so popular quantity called pseudo orbital angular momentum (OAM) in the Landau-level system, besides the well-known canonical and mechanical OAMs. The pseudo OAM can

On the two remaning issues in the gauge-invariant decomposition problem of the nucleon spin

The question whether the total angular momentum of the gluon in the nucleon can be decomposed into its spin and orbital parts without conflict with the gauge-invariance principle has been an object

Suppose a classical electron is confined to move in the $xy$ plane under the influence of a constant magnetic field in the positive $z$ direction. It then traverses a circular orbit with a fixed

Gauge and frame-independent decomposition of nucleon spin

In a recent paper, we have shown that the way of gauge-invariant decomposition of the nucleon spin is not necessarily unique, but there still exists a preferable decomposition from the observational

Is gauge-invariant complete decomposition of the nucleon spin possible?

Is gauge-invariant complete decomposition of the nucleon spin possible? Although it is a difficult theoretical question which has not reached a complete consensus yet, a general agreement now is that
