Solitary waves for nonlinear Klein–Gordon equations coupled with Born–Infeld theory
Annales de l'I.H.P. Analyse non linéaire, Volume 27 (2010) no. 1, p. 351-376
We consider the nonlinear Klein–Gordon equations coupled with the Born–Infeld theory under the electrostatic solitary wave ansatz. The existence of the least-action solitary waves is proved in both bounded smooth domain case and 3 case. In particular, for bounded smooth domain case, we study the asymptotic behaviors and profiles of the positive least-action solitary waves with respect to the frequency parameter ω. We show that when κ and ω are suitably large, the least-action solitary waves admit only one local maximum point. When ω, the point-condensation phenomenon occurs if we consider the normalized least-action solitary waves.
