# Boson Stars with Self-Interacting Quantum Scalar Fields

@article{Ho2002BosonSW, title={Boson Stars with Self-Interacting Quantum Scalar Fields}, author={Jeongwon Ho and Faqir C. Khanna and Chul Hoon Lee}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2002} }

The Klein-Gordon-Einstein equations of classical real scalar fields have time-dependent solutions (periodic in time). We show that quantum real scalar fields can form non-oscillating (static) solitonic objects, which are quite similar to the solutions describing boson stars formed with classical and quantum complex scalar fields (the latter will be studied in this paper). We numerically analyze the difference between them concerning the mass of boson stars. On the other hand, we suggest an…
