We have constructed a very different type of particle than any presently known. It is a boson and resides in the ##IMG## [http://ej.iop.org/images/0295-5075/131/4/41001/epl20257ieqn1.gif] {$(1/2,0)\oplus(0,1/2)$} representation space. The associated local field has mass dimension three-half. These new bosons can only be created or destroyed in pairs. When paired with a fermion the total zero point

The place and role of an Observer in quantum mechanics has been a subject of an ongoing debate since the theory's inception. Wigner brought this question to the fore in a celebrated scenario in which a super-Observer observes a Friend making a measurement. Here we briefly review why this “Wigner Friend scenario” has been taken to require the introduction of the Observer's consciousness, or alternatively

We explore the whole parameter space of the singlet fermionic cold-dark-matter model with respect to constraints on, first, the relic density and second, gamma-ray lines up to 10 TeV. We investigate 44000 random sample models which comprehensively scan the parameter space for dark-matter mass below 10 TeV, and compare our results with the latest experimental data from H.E.S.S., for the first time.

We report the observation of inhomogeneous superconductivity (ISC) in the recently discovered high-density nonmagnetic (NM) phase of Co in thin films below an onset temperature ( ##IMG## [http://ej.iop.org/images/0295-5075/131/4/47001/epl20262ieqn1.gif] {$T_{\mathrm{C}}$} ) of 5.4 K in the absence of external magnetic field, via four-probe measurements of resistivity. Further, the point-contact spectroscopy
