Determining Static Stresses of Deformed Solitons
Abstract
An equation for the quasistatic soliton ansatz depending on an arbitrary set of collective variables is covariantly derived on the basis of the variational approach to the method of collective variables. The field configuration and the static stresses of the deformed $\Phi ^4$kink that are produced by the excitation of the internal soliton mode are exactly determined. The kink interaction potential at large distances is considered for the example of the nonlinear KleinGordon system. A general approach to the problem of exactly determining the intersoliton potential for the entire set of physically admissible twosoliton configurations is discussed.
