R soliton in the Wess-Zumino model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Wess-Zumino model involving a renormalizable interaction potential and possessing R symmetry is considered. It is shown that an R soliton, which is a nontopological soliton state, is present in this model. Characteristic properties of the R soliton are discussed. Problems associated with the stability of the R soliton are considered. The results obtained by numerically calculating the energy and the charge of the R soliton are presented for several values of the model parameters. The scalar field configurations in this supersymmetric model are characterized by the presence of fermionic zero modes. Expressions for the fermionic zero modes of the R soliton are obtained, and some of their properties are considered.
