We find the N-soliton solution at infinite theta, as well as the metric on the moduli space corresponding to spatial displacements of the solitons. We use a perturbative expansion to incorporate the leading 1/theta corrections, and find an effective short range attraction between solitons. We study the stability of various solutions. We discuss the finite theta corrections to scattering, and find metastable orbits. Upon quantization of the two-soliton moduli space, for any finite theta, we find…

We study one- and two-soliton solutions of noncommutative Chern-Simons theory coupled to a nonrelativistic or a relativistic scalar field. In the nonrelativistic case, we find a tower of new

Moduli-space dynamics of noncommutative abelian sigma-model solitons

In the noncommutative (Moyal) plane, we relate exact U(1) sigma-model solitons to generic scalar-field solitons for an infinitely stiff potential. The static k-lump moduli space k/Sk features a

Sigma-Model Solitons in the Noncommutative Plane: Construction and Stability Analysis

Noncommutative multi-solitons are investigated in Euclidean two-dimensional U(n) and Grassmannian sigma models, using the auxiliary Fock-space formalism. Their construction and moduli spaces are

The moduli space of noncommutative vortices

The Abelian Higgs model on the noncommutative plane admits both BPS vortices and non-BPS fluxons. After reviewing the properties of these solitons, we discuss several new aspects of the former. We

The Decay of Unstable Noncommutative Solitons

Abstract: We study the classical decay of unstable scalar solitons in noncommutative field theory in 2+1 dimensions. This can, but does not have to, be viewed as a toy model for the decay of D-branes

On Noncommutative Multi-Solitons

Abstract: We find the moduli space of multi-solitons in noncommutative scalar field theories at large θ, in arbitrary dimension. The existence of a non-trivial moduli space at leading order in 1/θ is

Noncommutative solitons on Kahler manifolds

We construct a new class of scalar noncommutative multi-solitons on an arbitrary Kahler manifold by using Berezin's geometric approach to quantization and its generalization to deformation

Seiberg-Witten transforms of noncommutative solitons

We evaluate the Seiberg-Witten map for solitons and instantons in noncommutative gauge theories in various dimensions. We show that solitons constructed using the projection operators have

The Existence and Stability of Noncommutative Scalar Solitons

Abstract: We establish existence and stability results for solitons in noncommutative scalar field theories in even space dimension 2d. In particular, for any finite rank spectral projection P of the



Noncommutative Solitons

We find classically stable solitons (instantons) in odd (even) dimensional scalar noncommutative field theories whose scalar potential, V ( φ ), has at least two minima. These solutions are bubbles of

The stability of noncommutative scalar solitons

We determine the stability conditions for a radially symmetric non-commutative scalar soliton at finite noncommutivity parameter θ. We find an intriguing relationship between the stability and

Unstable solitons in noncommutative gauge theory

We find a class of exact solutions of noncommutative gauge theories corresponding to unstable non-BPS solitons. In the two-dimensional euclidean (or 2+1 dimensional lorentzian) U(1) theory we find

Quantum Corrections to Noncommutative Solitons

Noncommutative solitons are easier to find in a noncommutative field theory. Similarly, the one-loop quantum corrections to the mass of a noncommutative soliton are easier to compute, in a real

On Noncommutative Multi-Solitons

Abstract: We find the moduli space of multi-solitons in noncommutative scalar field theories at large θ, in arbitrary dimension. The existence of a non-trivial moduli space at leading order in 1/θ is

Noncommutative Tachyons

When unstable Dp-branes in type II string theory are placed in a B-field, the resulting tachyonic world-volume theory becomes noncommutative. We argue that for large noncommutativity parameter,

Non-commutative soliton scattering

We study solitons in three dimensional non-commutative scalar field theory at infinite non-commutativity parameter. We find the metric on the relative moduli space and show that it is Kahler. We then

Exact Multi-Vortex Solutions in Noncommutative Abelian-Higgs Theory

We consider the noncommutative Abelian-Higgs theory and construct new types of exact multi-vortex solutions that solve the static equations of motion. They in general do not follow from the BPS

Monopoles and strings in noncommutative gauge theory

We study some non-perturbative aspects of non-commutative gauge theories. We find analytic solutions of the equations of motion, for non-commutative U(1) gauge theory, that describe magnetic
