Vortons and their stability

Volkov, MS (University of Tours)
Tuesday 04 December 2012, 15:30-15:50

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We present classical field theory solutions describing stationary vortex loops carrying persistent currents and balanced against contraction by the centrifugal force. Objects of this type, sometimes called vortons, may exist in various physical contexts, ranging from domains of condensed matter physics described by the non-linear Schroedinger equation and/or Ginzburg-Landau equations, till models of high energy physics such as Witten's theory of superconducting cosmic strings. We also analyze the vorton stability, both at the linear and non-linear levels.
