Solitons in the Presence of Chemical Potential Academic Article uri icon


  • We study non-trivial effects associated to the introduction of chemical potential on spontaneous symmetry breaking, and in particular on the existence of solitons. Special attention is paid to the fact that vortex solutions appear in certain models when the chemical potential is raised above a certain critical value. Possible cosmological scenarios that incorporate these effects are briefly mentioned.
