Spin Vortices in Single-electron Systems

Spin vortices are topological entities described by integer winding numbers and conventionally are sought in many-spin systems, e.g. ferromagnets. As advances in nanoscale physics made it possible to trap and manipulate single electrons in the laboratory, it has become relevant to ask whether it is possible to realize these topological features at a single-electron level. We present a study on the spin texture of an electron and show that an inhomogeneous magnetic field can turn the spin texture into a spin vortex. An analytical relation between the phases of the asymptotic eigenfunct ...

Search for FCNC interactions at the colliders


Within the Standard Model (SM), Flavor Changing Neutral Current (FCNC) transitions only occur at loop level and are strongly suppressed due to the Glashow Iliopoulos Maiani (GIM) Mechanism. On the other hand, it has been shown that several extensions of the SM are able to relax the GIM suppression of the FCNC transitions due to additional loop diagrams mediated by new particles. As a result, the observation of any excess for these rare decays would be indicative of indirect effects of new physics. In this talk, some proposed methods to search for FCNC interactions at the LHC and the future colliders will be discussed.

Algorithmic Human Development versus Algorithmic Machine Learning


Driven by gigantic profits, a stunningly huge amount of human intellect, resources and funds are now devoted globally by governments and tech giants to make programmes and machines more intelligent, a quest which has had by now a mesmerizing impact on the global scientific and technological communities and on humans in general. In comparison, there is almost no effort in today's world to develop protocols that can effectively increase emotional and social intelligence and creativity in human beings. Yet, it is precisely the enhancement of these three traits, uniquely defining our species, which is vital to enable us to tackle the grave ecolo ...
