Compact vortices

We study a family of Maxwell–Higgs models, described by the inclusion of a function of the scalar field that represent generalized magnetic permeability. We search for vortex configurations which

Localized non-Abelian gauge fields in non-compact extra dimensions

Dynamical localization of non-Abelian gauge fields in non-compact flat $D$ dimensions is worked out. The localization takes place via a field-dependent gauge kinetic term when a field condenses in a

Small and hollow magnetic monopoles

We deal with the presence of magnetic monopoles in a non Abelian model that generalizes the standard 't~Hooft-Polyakov model in three spatial dimensions. We investigate the energy density of the

2 2 A ug 2 01 8 BPS Cho – Maison monopole

Dirac’s monopole [1], later generalized to the dyon by Schwinger [2], remains the most fruitful theoretical idea that is yet to be experimentally verified to date. Dirac’s famous quantization

BPS Cho–Maison monopole

We present exact solutions to Cho--Maison magnetic monopole in a family of effective electroweak models, which have a BPS limit. We find that the lower bound to the mass of the magnetic monopole is



Analytical BPS Maxwell-Higgs vortices

We have established a prescription for the calculation of analytical vortex solutions in the context of generalized Maxwell-Higgs models whose overall dynamics is controlled by two positive functions

BPS solutions to a generalized Maxwell–Higgs model

We look for topological BPS solutions of an Abelian Maxwell–Higgs theory endowed by non-standard kinetic terms to both gauge and scalar fields. Here, the non-usual dynamics are controlled by two

Dirac Born Infeld (DBI) Cosmic Strings

Motivated by brane physics, we consider the non-linear Dirac-Born-Infeld (DBI) extension of the Abelian-Higgs model and study the corresponding cosmic string configurations. The model is defined by a

Gravity of a noncanonical global monopole: conical topology and compactification

We obtain solutions of Einstein’s equations describing gravitational field outside a noncanonical global monopole with cosmological constant. In particular, we consider two models of k-monopoles: the

Gauge k-vortices

We consider gauge vortices in symmetry-breaking models with a noncanonical kinetic term. This work extends our previous study on global topological k-defects [Phys. Rev. D 74, 085004 (2006),

Higher-dimensional DBI solitons

We study the theory of a (global) texture with DBI-like Lagrangian, the higher-dimensional generalization of the previously known chiral Born-Infeld theory. This model evades Derrick's theorem and

Global topological k-defects

We consider global topological defects in symmetry-breaking models with a noncanonical kinetic term. Apart from a mass parameter entering the potential, one additional dimensional parameter arises in

Flux compactifications in Einstein-Born-Infeld theories

We investigate the flux compactification mechanism in simple toy models of Einstein-Born-Infeld theories. These are the direct generalizations of the Einstein-Maxwell flux compactifications that
