New branches of electrically charged Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs solutions
- 37 Downloads
We consider dyons and electrically charged monopole-antimonopole pairs in Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs theory. In the presence of an electric charge, bifurcations arise and new branches of solutions appear. For large values of the electric charge, spherically symmetric dyons approach limiting solutions related to the Penney solution of Einstein-Maxwell-scalar theory.

- 25.As the non-Abelian branch merges with the RN branch, the space-time splits into interior and exterior regions, where, in the exterior region, the limiting solution corresponds to the extremal RN solution, whereas in the interior region the solution retains its non-Abelian character [16, 18].Google Scholar
- 34.Expanding the solution H 2(r¯) of the Yang-Mills equation (30) in a power series, H 2(r¯) = 1+h 1 r¯ + h 2 r¯ 2/2 + O(r¯ 3), shows that h 1 = 0 while h 2 is a free parameter, characterizing the solution. Solving the equation numerically in the interval 0 ≤ r¯ ≤ 1 with the boundary conditions H 2(0) = 1, H 2(1) = h *, and varying h *, we observe that h 2(h *) increases with increasing h *. and tends to a finite value h 2max ≈ 3.047 when h * tends to infinity. In comparison with the numerical dyon solutions for a large charge Q, we find some evidence that H 2″ (0) indeed tends to the value h 2max for Q → ∞ i.e., H2 diverges at r¯ = 1 in the limit. The convergence is, however, very slow, approximately like \(1/\sqrt Q \) Google Scholar
