Classical solutions in the Born-Infeld theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Locally concentrated solutions in the Born-Infeld theory are presented. In particular, existence and uniqueness theorems are established for multicentred magnetic string solutions induced from a Higgs field over a closed Riemann surface or a Euclidean plane. On any given compact surface, the Born-Infeld parameter may be adjusted under a necessary and sufficient condition to allow the existence of an arbitrarily large number of strings.
