Thesis Abstract: I am interested in theories related to Higgs mode appearing in superconductors. A superconducting phase breaks global U(1) symmetry spontaneously, leading to a non-zero gap (the order parameter). From a field theory perspective, this corresponds to the appearance of massive photons, and correspondingly of Higgs bosons within the system. Theoretical details of emergence of these Higgs bosons are of great interest to me.
