Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield solitons in models with spontaneously broken gauge symmetry have been intensively studied at infinite gauge coupling limit, where the governing equation -- so-called master equation -- is exactly solvable. Except for a handful of special solutions, the standing impression is that analytic results at finite coupling are generally unavailable. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate, using domain walls in Abelian-Higgs models as the simplest example, that exact…

D-brane solitons in supersymmetric sigma models

- Physics

Massive $D=4,$ $N=2$ supersymmetric sigma models typically admit domain wall $(Q$-kink) solutions and string $(Q$-lump) solutions, both preserving 1/2 supersymmetry. We exhibit a new static 1/4…
