Self duality of the gauge field equations and the cosmological constant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper considers the Einstein equations coupled with the nonabelian gauge and Higgs fields. It is shown that, when cosmic string solutions are sought in the Einstein-Georgi-Glashow system and the Einstein-Weinberg-Salam system governing the gravitational-electromagnetic-weak interaction forces, the self duality conditions lead to positive values of the cosmological constant which can be expressed by some fundamental parameters in particle physics.
