Higher-spin wave dark matter and polarized solitons

Tuesday October 12, 2021
2:00 pm

 Presenter:  Mudit Jain, Rice University
 Series:  Nuclear, Particle, Astroparticle and Cosmology (NUPAC) Seminars
 Abstract:  I will first show that the effective non-relativistic theory of a gravitationally interacting, bosonic spin s field is described by a 2s+1 component Schrodinger-Poisson action. Then, I will show that the theory contains infinitely many 'classical' bound states (known as solitons), that can have macroscopically large intrinsic spin! Such solitons can be probed through their gravitational and/or non-gravitational interactions. Time permiting, I will also discuss vector solitons arising in self-interacting (without gravity) Proca theory.
