Some aspects of self-duality and generalised BPS theories.

Adam, C. and Ferreira, L.A. and da Hora, E. and Wereszczynski, A. and Zakrzewski, W.J. (2013) 'Some aspects of self-duality and generalised BPS theories.', Journal of high energy physics., 2013 (8). p. 62.

Abstract

If a scalar field theory in (1+1) dimensions possesses soliton solutions obeying first order BPS equations, then, in general, it is possible to find an infinite number of related field theories with BPS solitons which obey closely related BPS equations. We point out that this fact may be understood as a simple consequence of an appropriately generalised notion of self-duality. We show that this self-duality framework enables us to generalize to higher dimensions the construction of new solitons from already known solutions. By performing simple field transformations our procedure allows us to relate solitons with different topological properties. We present several interesting examples of such solitons in two and three dimensions.
