Abstract We construct multisphaleron solutions in the weak interactions. The multisphaleron solutions carry Chern-Simons charge n 2 , where n is an integer. The well-known sphaleron has n = 1 and is spherically symmetric for vanishing mixing angle. In contrast the multisphalerons with n > 1 are only axially symmetric, even for vanishing mixing angle. The greater n , the stronger the energy density deforms. While for small Higgs masses the energy of the multisphalerons is smaller than n times… Expand
