We investigate the presence of vortex solutions in potentials without vacuum state. The study is conducted considering Maxwell and Chern-Simons dynamics. Also, we use a first-order formalism that helps us to find the solutions and their respective electromagnetic fields and energy densities. As a bonus, we get to calculate the energy without knowing the explicit solutions. Even though the solutions present a large “tail” which goes far away from the origin, the magnetic flux remains a well… 
Incompressible topological solitons
We discover a new class of topological solitons. These solitons can exist in a space of infinite volume like, e.g., $\mathbb{R}^n$, but they cannot be placed in any finite volume, because the


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
Compact Chern–Simons vortices
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),
Vortices in a Generalized Maxwell-Higgs Model with Visible and Hidden Sectors
We investigate the presence of vortices in generalized Maxwell-Higgs models with a hidden sector. The model engenders U(1)×U(1) symmetry, in a manner that the sectors are coupled via the visible
Classical vortex solution of the Abelian Higgs model
An exact vortex solution for the Abelian Higgs model is found when a particular relation between the coupling constants is satisfied. For this case (in which the masses of the scalar and vector
