Nonlinear Electrodynamics and NED-Inspired Chiral Solitons

Article

Abstract

A nonlinear electrodynamics Lagrangian is considered and the electric field associated to an electric point-like charge is derived. The corresponding expression for the total field energy which has finite value in our model, is obtained. The chiral form of the Lagrangian is also presented. Topological, finite-energy, spherically symmetric solutions of the chiral model are studied and some of their properties are discussed.
