The complex sine-Gordon model on a half line

  title={The complex sine-Gordon model on a half line},
  author={P.Bowcock and G.Tzamtzis},
In this paper, we examine the complex sine-Gordon model in the presence of a boundary, and derive boundary conditions that preserve integrability. We present soliton and breather solutions, investigate the scattering of particles and solitons off the boundary and examine the existence of classical solutions corresponding to boundary bound states.

Aspects of integrability in string sigma-models

The recent success in applying integrability-based methods to study examples of gauge/gravity dualities in highly (super)symmetric settings motivates the question of whether such methods can be

String theory in AdS 3 × S 3 × T 4 ?> with mixed flux: semiclassical and 1-loop phase in the S-matrix

We present a semiclassical derivation of the tree-level and 1-loop dressing phases in the massive sector of string theory on AdS 3 × S 3 × T 4 ?> supplemented by Ramond–Ramond and

Quantum complex sine-Gordon model on a half line

In this paper, we examine the quantum complex sine-Gordon model on a half line. We obtain the quantum spectrum of boundary bound states using the the semi-classical method of Dashen, Hasslacher and

Aspects of the Homogeneous Sine-Gordon models

The physical mass scales that determine the behaviour of general (simply-laced) Homogeneous Sine-Gordon models are investigated by means of a study of their finite-size effects, using the



Unified Approach to Strings and Vortices with Soliton Solutions

A classical relativistic theory of one-dimensional extended objects interacting through a massless scalar field, of which they are in turn the source, is constructed. In the no-coupling limit, the

Integrable Hamiltonian systems and interactions through quadratic constraints

On-invariant classical relativistic field theories in one time and one space dimension with interactions that are entirely due to quadratic constraints are shown to be closely related to integrable

Self-Induced Transparency by Pulsed Coherent Light

Example of a Relativistic, Completely Integrable, Hamiltonian System

The initial value problem for a system of two relativistic scalar fields in two space-time dimensions is solved. One of them has a self-interaction of the sine-Gordon type, while the other is

New Lorentz-invariant system with exact multisoliton solutions

A Lorentz-invariant equation is derived for a scalar complex field in two-dimensional space-time. Exact two-soliton solutions are obtained for this equation and can be generalized in trivial fashion
