Speaker: Yasha Shnir (LTP, JINR)
Subject: Gravitating solitons and hairy black holes

We overview the pattern of evolution of self-gravitating solitons in the Einstein gravity coupled to matter field. We consider transformation of the matric and links between the Skyrmions and monopoles in flat space-time and Bartnik-McKinnon solitons and hairy black holes. We also briefly discuss corresponding solitons in asymptotycally AdS spacetime

The weekly calendar is also available via subscription to the physics-announce mailing list, and by RSS feed.
