Self-dual sectors for scalar field theories in (1 + 1) dimensions.

Ferreira, L. A. and Klimas, P. and Zakrzewski, Wojtek J. (2019) 'Self-dual sectors for scalar field theories in (1 + 1) dimensions.', Journal of high energy physics., 2019 (1). 020.

Abstract

We use ideas of generalized self-duality conditions to construct real scalar field theories in (1 + 1)-dimensions with exact self dual sectors. The approach is based on a pre-potential U that defines the topological charge and the potential energy of these theories. In our algebraic method to construct the required pre-potentials we use the representation theory of Lie groups. This approach leads naturally to an infinite set of degenerate vacua and so to topologically non-trivial self-dual solutions of these models. We present explicit examples for the groups SU(2), SU(3) and SO(5) and discuss some properties of these solutions.
