In my thesis I study Majorana fermions from three different perspectives. The first one corresponds to the case of non-interacting Majorana fermions that have, hovewer, non-trivial topological properties. The second one are interacting Majoranas that form maximally chaotic state. The third one are relic neutrinos. No one knows for sure whether they are Majorana or Dirac fermions.
