Remarks on the interaction between Born–Infeld solitons

  title={Remarks on the interaction between Born–Infeld solitons},
  author={Yves Brihaye and Betti Hartmann},
We consider the abelian Higgs model as well as the SU(2) Georgi–Glashow model in which the gauge field action is replaced by a nonlinear Born–Infeld (BI) action. We study soliton solutions arising in these models, namely the vortex and monopole solutions, respectively. We construct formulae which provide good approximations for the mass of the BI deformed solitons using only the data of the undeformed solutions. The results obtained indicate that in the self-dual limit, the BI interaction leads…

Monopoles and dyons in SO(3) gauged Skyrme models: Corrigendum
The axially symmetric solutions of a gauged Skyrme model previously studied in an earlier work [J. Math. Phys. 42, 3270 (2001)] are reconsidered.


Classical solutions in the Einstein-Born-Infeld-Abelian-Higgs model
We consider the classical equations of the Born-Infeld-Abelian-Higgs model (with and without coupling to gravity) in an axially symmetric ansatz. A numerical analysis of the equations reveals that
Classical glueballs in non-Abelian Born-Infeld theory.
New classical glueballs, which are of a sphaleronic nature, exhibit a striking similarity to the Bartnik-McKinnon solutions to the Yang-Mills theory coupled to gravity.
Interaction energy of superconducting vortices
By means of a constrained variational calculation we determine the interaction energy of two-vortex configurations in the Ginzburg-Landau theory or, equivalently, in the Abelian Higgs model. The
Multimonopole solutions in the Prasad-Sommerfield limit
A variational search for multimonopole solutions of the Yang-Mills-Higgs equations in the Prasad-Sommerfield limit is performed. An ansatz where two monopoles are superimposed at the origin is shown
Particlelike solutions of the Einstein-Yang-Mills equations.
We study the static spherically symmetric Einstein-Yang-Mills equations with SU(2) gauge group and find numerical solutions which are nonsingular and asymptotically flat. These solutions have a
Axially symmetric monopoles and black holes in Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs theory
We investigate static axially symmetric monopole and black hole solutions with a magnetic charge $ng~1$ in Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs theory. For a vanishing and small Higgs self-coupling,
Foundations of the New Field Theory
THE new field equations proposed recently1 can be derived from either of two principles, the first being a rather obvious physical statement, the other an equally obvious mathematical postulate.
