Abstract

The correlations in charge transport in multiple Majorana fermions systems contain much richer physics and carry more information than the conventional transport coefficients. We calculate the auto- and cross-correlations in the spinful topological Kondo model (SKTM) and point out the frequencies dependencies of the correlations that may serve as a proof of the existence of the Majorana fermions in our system, particularly the change of the cross-correlation from positive to negative at higher frequency.
