Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs solitons

Research Articles


The classical theory of the gravitational field coupled to an SO(3) gauge field and to a ghost Higgs field in (3+1) dimensions is found to admit regular localized solutions of the electric or magnetic type. These solutions, which generalize solutions previously found for the Abelian case, are characterized by a non-Euclidean spatial topology, with two points at infinity.
