### Non-relativistic limit in a Lagrangian density

What criteria should I consider when determining the non-relativistic limit of a Lagrangian density? For example, how would I take the non-relativistic limit of the following Lagrangian density: ...

### Finding out Energy value

A Lagrangian is given by, $$L= \left(\frac{\pi}{2}\right)^2 R^d \left[\frac{1}{2}\dot A^2 - V(A_{max})\right]$$ $$E=\left(\frac{\pi}{2}\right)^2R^d V(A_{max})$$ where V (A) now includes nonlinear ...

### Difference between oscillon and quasi breather

How do we differentiate between oscillon and quasi breather ? Which equation can give me the property of these wave? I know the solition equation and got it for different potential, need to know when ...

### Vortex in D dimensions soliton

let us consider the two-dimensional configuration shown in Fig. 3.1a. The lengths of the arrows represent the magnitude of φ, while their directions indicate the orientation in the $φ_1 -φ_2$ plane. ...

### sine-Gordon equation

I have derived a solition equation (2 dimensions) from scalar field theory $$\varphi(x) = v\tanh\Bigl(\tfrac{1}{2}m(x - x_0)\Bigr),\tag{1}$$ and also I have got sine-Gordon equation for solition ...

### Domain wall and kink solutions from solitions equations

A general solition equation can be obtaion from scalar field theory $$\varphi(x) = v\tanh\Bigl(\tfrac{1}{2}m(x - x_0)\Bigr),\tag{92.6}$$ where $x_0$ is a constant of integration when we drived this ...

### Definition of Local Function

Now a days I am studying Srednicki's QFT book. In its third chapter it is written that Any local function of φ(x) is a Lorentz scalar, [...] . Now my question is: What is a local function?

### Scalar field lagrangian and potential

This question is a continuation of this Phys.SE post. Scalar field theory does not have gauge symmetry, and in particular, $\phi\to\phi−1$ is not a gauge transformation. but why? and I want see the ...

### Is Inflation modelled by a field?

If Inflation is modelled by a field - is this a classical field or a quantum field? If classical are there good reasons not to quantise it? What are the implications of such a quantisation?

### Why is the Yang-Mills gauge group assumed compact and semi-simple?

What is the motivation for including the compactness and semi-simplicity assumptions on the groups that one gauges to obtain Yang-Mills theories? I'd think that these hypotheses lead to physically ...

### Auxiliary fields in supersymmetry

I know that auxiliary fields can be used to close the supersymmetry algebra in case the bosonic and fermionic on-shell degrees of freedom do not match. Could somebody please elaborate on this concept ...

### Lorentz Invariant Equation of Motion for Scalar Field

I'm trying to understand why you can't write down a first order equation of motion for a scalar field in special relativity. Suppose $\phi(x)$ a scalar field, $v^{\mu}$ a 4-vector. According to my ...
