Using a recently developed method, based on a generalization of the zero curvature representation of Zakharov and Shabat, we study the integrability structure in the Abelian Higgs model. It is shown that the model contains integrable sectors, where integrability is understood as the existence of infinitely many conserved currents. In particular, a gauge invariant description of the weak and strong integrable sectors is provided. The pertinent integrability conditions are given by a U(1… 

Infinitely many conservation laws in self-dual Yang-Mills theory

Using a nonlocal field transformation for the gauge field known as Cho-Faddeev-Niemi-Shabanov decomposition as well as ideas taken from generalized integrability, we derive a new family of infinitely


We review our proposal to generalize the standard two-dimensional flatness construction of Lax–Zakharov–Shabat to relativistic field theories in d+1 dimensions. The fundamentals from the theory of

Hitchin's equations and integrability of BPS Z(N) strings in Yang-Mills theories

We show that ZN string's BPS equations are equivalent to the Hitchin's equations (or self-duality equation) and also to the zero curvature condition. We construct the general form for BPS ZN string

Bogomolny equations in certain generalized baby BPS Skyrme models

By using the concept of strong necessary conditions (CSNCs), we derive Bogomolny equations and Bogomol’nyi–Prasad–Sommerfield (BPS) bounds for two certain modifications of the baby BPS Skyrme model:

An integrable subsystem of Yang–Mills dilaton theory

With the help of the Cho–Faddeev–Niemi–Shabanov decomposition of the SU(2) Yang–Mills field, we find an integrable subsystem of SU(2) Yang–Mills theory coupled to the dilaton. Here integrability



Integrability and Conformal Symmetry in Higher Dimensions: A Model with Exact Hopfion Solutions

We use ideas on integrability in higher dimensions to define Lorentz invariant field theories with an infinite number of local conserved currents. The models considered have a two dimensional target

New integrable sectors in the Skyrme and four-dimensional CPn models

The application of a weak integrability concept to the Skyrme and CPn models in four dimensions is investigated. A new integrable subsystem of the Skyrme model, allowing also for non-holomorphic

Conservation laws in Skyrme-type models

The zero curvature representation of Zakharov and Shabat [V. E. Zakharov and A. B. Shabat, Soviet Phys. JETP 34, 62 (1972)] has been generalized recently to higher dimensions and has been used to

Integrability from an Abelian Subgroup of the diffeomorphisms group

It has been known for some time that for a large class of nonlinear field theories in Minkowski space with two-dimensional target space the complex eikonal equation defines integrable submodels with

Dynamics of Abelian Higgs vortices in the near Bogomolny regime

The aim of this paper is to give an analytical discussion of the dynamics of the Abelian Higgs multi-vortices whose existence was proved by Taubes ([JT82]). For a particular value of a parameter of
