  • Abstract
    A soliton state with both topological and non-topological charges is shown to exist in a certain spontaneously broken gauge theory with an additional global U(1) symmetry. This new soliton state, the Q-monopole-ball, is shown to be stable from decaying into an isolated Q-ball and a magnetic monopole state. There exists a minimum global charge for a Q-monopole-ball to be stable from decaying into free global U(1)-charged particles and an isolated monopole. Q-monopole-balls with a large magnetic charge are shown to be also stable if the topological charge is smaller than the cubic root of the global charge. Q-monopole-balls could be produced from a phase transition in the early universe and account for all dark matter.
