Interactions and excitations of non-Abelian vortices.

Abstract:

We examine bosonic zero modes of vortices formed in the gauge breaking G → H. For non-Abelian G, zero modes are generic. Their solutions depend on global symmetry structure. Vortices render the embedding H ⊂ G space dependent, with a dynamically determined subgroup H̃ single valued. They Aharonov-Bohm scatter gauge bosons associated with multivalued generators. Alice strings [H = O(2), H̃ = ℤ2] attract charges and scatter SO(2) "photons," and a two-string system has zero modes with unlocaliza...
