Monopoles , Vortices , Domain Walls and D-Branes : The Rules of Interaction

  title={Monopoles , Vortices , Domain Walls and D-Branes : The Rules of Interaction},
  author={Norisuke Sakai and David Tong},
Non-abelian gauge theories in the Higgs phase admit a startling variety of BPS solitons. These include domain walls, vortex strings, confined monopoles threaded on vortex strings, vortex strings ending on domain walls, monopoles threaded on strings ending on domain walls, and more. After presenting a selfcontained review of these objects, including several new results on the dynamics of domain walls, we go on to examine the possible interactions of solitons of various types. We point out the… CONTINUE READING
