It is shown that the Born–Infeld nonlinear electrodynamics with a polynomial type nonlinearity accommodates finite-energy electric point charges but rejects finite-energy magnetic point charges, or monopoles, thereby spelling out an electromagnetic asymmetry. Moreover, it is demonstrated, in a systematic way, that the curvature singularities of finite-energy charged black holes in the context of the Born–Infeld theory may effectively be relegated or in some cases removed under a critical mass… 

Vortices and cosmic strings in a generalized Born-Infeld model

. In this paper, we consider two types of topological solitons in a generalized Born-Infeld-Higgs model. We explore the self-dual structure of the model and prove the existence of planar vortex

Dyonic Matter Equations, Exact Point-Source Solutions, and Charged Black Holes in Generalized Born--Infeld Theory

We derive the equations of motion governing static dyonic matters, described in terms of two real scalar fields, in nonlinear electrodynamics of the Born–Infeld theory type. We then obtain some exact



Electrically charged black holes in linear and nonlinear electrodynamics: Geodesic analysis and scalar absorption

Along the last decades, several regular black hole (BH) solutions, i.e., singularity-free BHs, have been proposed and associated to nonlinear electrodynamics models minimally coupled to general

Magnetic monopoles in gauge field theories

An account is given of the new insight into the theory of magnetic monopoles originating from the work of 't Hooft (1976) and Polyakov (1974). Their magnetic monopole, associated with the

No compelling cosmological models come out of magnetic universes which are based on nonlinear electrodynamics

Here we investigate the cosmic dynamics of Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universes – flat spatial sections – which are driven by nonlinear electrodynamics (NLED) Lagrangians. We pay special attention to

Nonlinear electrodynamics and FRW cosmology

Maxwell electrodynamics, considered as a source of the classical Einstein field equations, leads to the singular isotropic Friedmann solutions. We show that this singular behavior does not occur for

The exact solution for a static spherically symmetric field outside a charged point particle is found in a non-linear $U(1)$ gauge theory with a logarithmic Lagrangian. The electromagnetic self-mass

New take on the inflationary quintessence

The quintessence field coupled to the cosmic neutrino background (CNB) has been widely discussed as an alternative mechanism to address the coincidence problem. As it is well known, it is possible to

Constraints on field flows of quintessence dark energy

The quest for understanding the late-time acceleration is haunted by an immense freedom in the analysis of dynamical models for dark energy in extended parameter spaces. Often-times having no prior
