Fermion self-trapping in the optical geometry of Einstein-Dirac solitons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We analyze gravitationally localized states of multiple fermions with high angular momenta, in the formalism introduced by Finster, Smoller, and Yau [Phys Rev. D 59, 104020 (1999)]. We show that the resulting solitonlike wave functions can be naturally interpreted in terms of a form of self-trapping, where the fermions become localized on shells the locations of which correspond to those of “bulges” in the optical geometry created by their own energy density.
