Linear magnetic response of external constant backgrounds to an applied Coulomb field. Magnetic-monopole solution

  title={Linear magnetic response of external constant backgrounds to an applied Coulomb field. Magnetic-monopole solution},
  author={Tiago Adorno and D. M. Gitman and Anatoly E. Shabad},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
Linear Maxwell equations, corresponding to the first-power deviations from a constant-field background, are studied within the infrared approximation. Linear magnetic responses, linearly induced currents and vector potentials to an imposed static finite-sized charge in an arbitrary combination of constant and homogeneous electric and magnetic fields are discussed. Two class of solutions are found, namely, magnetically neutral responses whose corresponding magnetic charges are zero, as a result…

Collective behavior of light in vacuum

Under the action of light-by-light scattering, light beams show collective behaviors in vacuum. For instance, in the case of two counterpropagating laser beams with specific initial helicity, the

Electric and magnetic axion quark nuggets, their stability and their detection

The present work studies the dynamics of axion quark nuggets introduced in Zhitnitsky (JCAP 0310:010, 2003) and developed further in the works (Zhitnitsky in Phys Rev D 74:043515, 2006; Lawson and



Moving point charge as a soliton in nonlinear electrodynamics

The field of a moving pointlike charge is determined in nonlinear local electrodynamics. As a model Lagrangian for the latter we take the one whose nonlinearity is the Euler-Heisenberg Lagrangian of

The OVAL experiment: a new experiment to measure vacuum magnetic birefringence using high repetition pulsed magnets

Abstract A new experiment to measure vacuum magnetic birefringence (VMB), the OVAL experiment, is reported. We developed an original pulsed magnet that has a high repetition rate and applies the

The study of the Heisenberg‐Euler Lagrangian and some of its applications

The Heisenberg‐Euler Lagrangian (HEL) is not only a topic of fundamental interest, but also has a rich variety of diverse applications in astrophysics, nonlinear optics and elementary particle

Evidence for light-by-light scattering in heavy-ion collisions with the ATLAS detector at the LHC

Light-by-light scattering (gamma gamma -> gamma gamma) is a quantum-mechanical process that is forbidden in the classical theory of electrodynamics. This reaction is accessible at the Large Hadr ...
