Electroweak Vortices

Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


In this chapter we present multivortex solutions in the theory of Weinberg—Salam for unified electromagnetic and weak interactions. In §7.1 we present an illustrative study of a simplified theory describing the interactions of electromagnetism and the W-particles. In §7.2 we consider the electroweak theory of Weinberg—Salam and state an existence theorem for multivortex solutions. In §7.3 we prove the existence theorem through a multiconstrained variational approach. In §7.4 we study an extended electroweak theory containing two Higgs fields, a topic of much recent focus.
