Vacuum energy of CP(1) solitons (2001)

Author(s): Moss IG, Shiiki N, Takashi T

    Abstract: The vacuum energy of two CP(1) solitons on a torus is computed numerically. A numerical technique for zeta-function regularisation is proposed to remove the divergences of the vacuum energy. After performing the numerical regularisation, we observe the effect of the vacuum energy on the two soliton interactions.
