Majorana fermions are exotic quasiparticles predicted to emerge in certain superconducting devices and to display topological features related to fault-tolerant schemes for quantum computation. In this seminar, after an introduction to Majorana fermions and a glance at some of their recently experimentally confirmed signatures, I shall discuss how Majoranas can lead to strong correlation phenomena and associated transport characteristics that may allow one to probe their, yet untested, non-local quantum dynamics, a key feature behind potential Majorana based topological qubits.
