"Chirality in Nature" Monday November 5th 2018


Katsuya Inoue (kxi @

(Hiroshima University, Japan) 



Chirality can be found at all time and space scale in nature. In this seminar I shall explore what is important from basic particle physics to large scale natural world. I shall start from chiral spin system and show how to connect static chirality and spin chirality. Next, I shall introduce the common properties to biomolecules and chiral (magnetic) liquid crystals. Next, I shall make efforts to find out the commonality between the chiral spin and the QCD systems. Based on these facts, I discuss the nature of nonlinear defects of chiral solitons, skyrmions, Hopfions. In conclusion, I shallpresent prospects in chiral science.
