We examine the 5d Yang-Mills matrix model in 0 + 1-dimensions with U(4N) gauge symmetry and a mass deformation term. We determine the explicit SU(4) ≈ SO(6) equivariant parametrizations of the gauge field and the fluctuations about the classical four concentric fuzzy four sphere configuration and obtain the low energy reduced actions(LEAs) by tracing over the SF 4s for the first five lowest matrix levels. The LEAs so obtained have potentials bounded from below indicating that the equivariant fluctuations about the SF 4 do not lead to any instabilities. These reduced systems exhibit chaos, which we reveal by computing their Lyapunov exponents. Using our numerical results, we explore various aspects of chaotic dynamics emerging from the LEAs. In particular, we model how the largest Lyapunov exponents change as a function of the energy. We also show that, in the Euclidean signature, the LEAs support the usual kink type soliton solutions, i.e. instantons in 1+ 0-dimensions, which may be seen as the imprints of the topological fluxes penetrating the concentric SF 4s due to the equivariance conditions, and preventing them to shrink to zero radius. Relaxing the Gauss law constraint in the LEAs in the manner recently discussed by Maldacena and Milekhin leads to Goldstone bosons.

Chaos from massive deformations of Yang-Mills matrix models
Başkan, K.; Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin; Oktay, O.; Taşcı, Cankut (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-10-01)
We focus on an SU(N) Yang-Mills gauge theory in 0 + 1-dimensions with the same matrix content as the bosonic part of the BFSS matrix model, but with mass deformation terms breaking the global SO(9) symmetry of the latter to SO(5) x SO(3) x Z(2). Introducing an ansatz configuration involving fuzzy four and two spheres with collective time dependence, we examine the chaotic dynamics in a family of effective Lagrangians obtained by tracing over the aforementioned ansatz configurations at the matrix levels N = ...

We discuss the appearance of theta vacua and solitons with fractional spin in the S2-valued nonlinear sigma model in two space dimensions. We use a formulation of the sigma model in terms of Euler angles and work within the context of canonical quantization. We show that when the model is coupled to an SU(2) topologically massive theory, the theta sectors disappear and the topological mass is not quantized.
Extended dynamical symmetries of Landau levels in higher dimensions
Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin; YURDUŞEN, İSMET (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-02-14)
Continuum models for time-reversal (TR) invariant topological insulators (Tis) in d >= 3 dimensions are provided by harmonic oscillators coupled to certain SO(d) gauge fields. These models are equivalent to the presence of spin-orbit (SO) interaction in the oscillator Hamiltonians at a critical coupling strength (equivalent to the harmonic oscillator frequency) and leads to flat Landau Level (LL) spectra and therefore to infinite degeneracy of either the positive or the negative helicity states depending on...
Approximate Pseudospin and Spin Solutions of the Dirac Equation for a Class of Exponential Potentials
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan; TEZCAN, CEVDET (2010-02-01)
The Dirac equation is solved for some exponential potentials the hypergeometric-type potential, the generalized Morse potential, and the Poschl-Teller potential with any spin-orbit quantum number kappa in the case of spin and pseudospin symmetry. We have approximated for non s-waves the centrifugal term by an exponential form. The energy eigenvalue equations and the corresponding wave functions are obtained by using a generalization of the Nikiforov-Uvarov method.
Discrete symmetries in quantum theory
Taşdan, İsmail Ufuk; Pak, Namık Kemal; Department of Physics (2015)
In this thesis, one of the most central problems of modern physics, namely the discrete symmetries, is discussed from various perspectives ranging from classical mechanics to relativistic quantum theory. The discrete symmetries, namely charge conjugation (C), parity (P), time reversal (T), which are connected by the so-called CPT Theorem are studied in detail. The anti-particles with a view to matter-anti-matter symmetry is also addressed and the anti-unitarity nature of the time reversal, as well as the CP...
