Supercharge Operator of Hidden Symmetry in the Dirac Equation
Abstract
We require that there exist some additional symmetry of the Dirac Hamiltonian in an arbitrary central potential which describes the degeneracy of spectrum with respect to the two signs of eigenvalues of famous Dirac's K operator. It is proved that this happens only for the Coulomb potential. In this particular case symmetry operator reduces to the wellknown JohnsonLippmann operator, which plays a role of supercharge in the DiracCoulomb problem and generates a Witten's superalgebra.

Hidden symmetry of the LandauLifshitz equation, hierarchy of higher equations, and the dual equation for an asymmetric chiral field
A grouptheoretical scheme is developed for constructing higher stationary LandauLifshitz equations in the form of Euler equations on the orbits of the algebra of su(2)valued functions on an elliptic curve. Duality between the LandauLifshitz equation and the equation for the currents of an asymmetric chiral O(3) field is established. 
Exact supersymmetry in the relativistic hydrogen atom in general dimensionssupercharge and the generalized JohnsonLippmann operator
A Dirac particle in general dimensions moving in a 1/r potential is shown to have an exact supersymmetry, for which the two supercharge operators are obtained in terms of (a Ddimensional generalization of) the JohnsonLippmann operator, an extension of the RungeLenzPauli vector that relativistically incorporates spin degrees of freedom. So the extra symmetry (S(2)) in the quantum Kepler problem, which determines the degeneracy of the levels, is so robust as to accommodate the relativistic case in arbitrary dimensions. 
Study of chiral symmetry in quenched QCD using the overlap Dirac operator
We compute fermionic observables relevant to the study of chiral symmetry in quenched QCD using the overlap Dirac operator for a wide range of fermion mass. We use analytical results to disentangle the contribution from exact zero modes and simplify our numerical computations. Details concerning the numerical implementation of the overlap Dirac operator are presented. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society} 
Supersymmetric analysis of the DiracWeyl operator within PT symmetry
Twodimensional effective Hamiltonian for a massless Dirac electron interacting with a hyperbolic magnetic field is discussed within PT symmetry. Factorization method and polynomial procedures are used to solve Dirac equation for the constant Fermi velocity and the effective potential which is complex Scarf II potential. The more general effective Scarf II potential models are also obtained within pseudosupersymmetry. Finally, an extension of Panella and Roy's work [Phys. Lett. A 376, 2580–2583 (2012)] to the both PT symmetric and real Scarf II partner potentials is given using the position dependent Fermi velocity.
