Vorton solutions in 2D and 3D
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
We will present strong evidence for the existence of ring solutions in 2D and 3D known as vortons. In 2D we have are able to find analytic solutions for a twisted domain wall solutions which we use with a semi-analytic model to asset the existence of vortons and this is tested against numerical field theory solutions. We go on to the more difficult problem of vortons in 3D. We present solutions both in the cases of global and local U(1)xU(1) symmetries.
