Slow processes in physics are typically related to the existence of high (free)
energy barriers, which require strong fluctuations, or to nearly integrable
regions in the phase space, which determine a slow onset of equipartition.
In this talk we intend to discuss a different mechanism appearing in the
Discrete Nonlinear Schroedinger Equation (DNLSE), when we analyze the...
We describe a method to probe the quantum phase transition between the short-range and the long-range topological phase in the superconducting Kitaev chain with long-range pairing. We show that, when the leads are biased at a voltage V, the Fano factor is either zero or 2e. As a result, we find that the Fano factor works as a directly measurable quantity to probe the quantum phase transition...
We study the out-of-equilibrium properties of (1+1)-dimensional quantum electrodynamics (QED), discretized via the staggered-fermion Schwinger model with an Abelian Z_n gauge group. We look at two relevant phenomena: first, we analyze the stability of the Dirac vacuum with respect to particle/antiparticle pair production, both spontaneous and induced by an external electric field; then, we...
After a general introduction on
Dirac and (multi-)Weyl semimetals,
I will discuss the abelian axial anomaly
in multi-Weyl and triple-point semimetals,
commenting on its physical consequences.

Bound states in the continuum are extensively studied both theoretically and experimentally, with the aim of implementing noiseless memories. In quantum optics, models adopted for their description make use of the dipolar interaction, representing an exactly solvable case in the one-excitation sector. We characterize the eigensystem for any number of equally spaced qubits embedded in one...
The NEMSYS specific initiative, a condensed matter project devoted to the
fundamental physics of correlated fermion and boson systems, confined to low
dimensions, has involved about 20 researchers, from two Universities
[Universita' della Calabria (UNICAL), Universita' di Roma Tor Vergata (ToV)]
and two research institutes [Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati (LNF), Trento
