Q-balls – whether in the single-field or multi-field context – are usually studied in theories containing only one stabilising symmetry. However, this is not the most general scenario. In this paper, we study a class of theories with multiple symmetries. We consider both the traditional thinand thick-wall limits of these theories, deriving sufficient conditions for existence in the latter case. Moreover, we also introduce a new state that could exist in this class of theory – a cored Q-ball. We…

Charge-swapping Q-balls in a logarithmic potential and Affleck-Dine condensate fragmentation

Abstract We study charge-swapping Q-balls, a kind of composite Q-ball where positive and negative charges co-exist and swap with time, in models with a logarithmic potential that arises naturally in



Non-Canonical Q-balls

Theories possessing non-canonical kinetic terms are often studied for Q-ball states in an ad-hoc manner. This paper seeks to generalise their study for both thinand thick-wall Q-balls. Specifically,

Stable Q-balls from extra dimensions

Mapping gauged Q -balls

Scalar field theories with particular Uð1Þ-symmetric potentials contain nontopological soliton solutions called Q-balls. Promoting the Uð1Þ to a gauge symmetry leads to the more complicated situation

Some non-abelian Q-balls

Understanding Q -balls beyond the thin-wall limit

Complex scalar fields charged under a global $U(1)$ symmetry can admit nontopological soliton configurations called $Q$-balls, which are stable against decay into individual particles or smaller

Gauged Q balls.

Classical nontopological soliton configurations are considered within the theory of a complex scalar field with a gauged U(1) symmetry. Their existence and stability against dispersion are

Solitosynthesis of Q-balls

We study the formation of Q-balls in the early universe, concentrating on potentials with a cubic or quartic attractive interaction. Large Q-balls can form via solitosynthesis, a process of gradual

Higgs assisted Q-balls from pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone bosons

A bstractMotivated by recent constructions of TeV-scale strongly-coupled dynamics, either associated with the Higgs sector itself as in pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson (pNGB) Higgs models or in theories

Barnacles and gravity

A bstractTheories with more than one vacuum allow quantum transitions between them, which may proceed via bubble nucleation; theories with more than two vacua posses additional decay modes in which

Class of scalar-field soliton solutions in three space dimensions

A class of three-space-dimensional soliton solutions is given; these solitons are made of scalar fields and are of a nontopological nature. The necessary conditions for having such soliton solutions
