Symmetry break in a scalar field theory in a $(1 + 1)$-spacetime

  title={Symmetry break in a scalar field theory in a \$(1 + 1)\$-spacetime},
  author={Gilberto N. Santos Filho},
In this work we are considering a relativistic scalar field theory in a (1 + 1) Minkowski spacetime for a class of periodic potentials. These potentials exhibit solutions known as kinks and antikinks with topological charges, energy density and mass dependent of the potentials parameters. We break the symmetry from a vacuum expectation value (vev) zero for a non zero vev, that means that the supersymmetry (SUSY) and internal symmetry are also spontaneously broken.
