  title={Oscillatons revisited},
  author={L. Arturo Ure{\~n}a-L{\'o}pez},
In this paper, we study some interesting properties of a spherically symmetric oscillating soliton star made of a real time-dependent scalar field which is called an oscillaton. The known final configuration of an oscillaton consists of a stationary stage in which the scalar field and the metric coefficients oscillate in time if the scalar potential is quadratic. The differential equations that arise in the simplest approximation, that of coherent scalar oscillations, are presented for a… 
A review on radiation of oscillons and oscillatons
Numerical simulations show that a massive real scalar field in a nonlinear theory can form long-lived oscillating localized states. For a self-interacting scalar on a fixed background these objects
Numerical studies of Phi^2-Oscillatons
We present an exhaustive analysis of the numerical evolution of the Einstein-Klein-Gordon equations for the case of a real scalar field endowed with a quadratic self-interaction potential. The
Geodesics around oscillatons
Oscillatons are spherically symmetric solutions to the Einstein–Klein–Gordon equations. These solutions are non-singular, asymptotically flat, and with periodic time dependency. In this paper, we
Geodesics around oscillatons made of exponential scalar field potential
Some of the spherically symmetric solutions to the Einstein–Klein–Gordon (EKG) equations can describe the astronomical soliton objects made of a real time-dependent scalar fields. The solutions are
Oscillons in dilaton-scalar theories
It is shown by both analytical methods and numerical simulations that extremely long living spherically symmetric oscillons appear in virtually any real scalar field theory coupled to a massless
Numerical evidence for “multiscalar stars”
We present a class of general relativistic solitonlike solutions composed of multiple minimally coupled, massive, real scalar fields which interact only through the gravitational field. We describe a
Numerical simulation of oscillatons: extracting the radiating tail
Spherically symmetric, time-periodic oscillatons -- solutions of the Einstein-Klein-Gordon system (a massive scalar field coupled to gravity) with a spatially localized core -- are investigated by
The fate of dense scalar stars
Long-lived pseudo-solitonic objects, known as oscillons/oscillatons, which we collectively call real scalar stars, are ubiquitous in early Universe cosmology of scalar field theories. Typical
Evolution and stability Φ4 oscillatons
We solve numerically the Einstein–Klein–Gordon (EKG) system, assuming spherical symmetry, for a real scalar field endowed with a quartic self-interaction potential, and obtain the so-called
