Soliton-like solutions of some nonlinear theories and transformations among them
G P Malik J Subba Rao Gautam Johri
The observation that the soliton-like solutions of a given second-order nonlinear differential equation define the separatrix of the equivalent autonomous system is used to obtain the one-soliton solutions for the

A virial theorem for solitons derived by Friedberg, Lee and Sirlin is used to reduce a system of second order equations to an equivalent first order set. It is shown that this theorem, when used in conjunction with our earlier observation that soliton-like solutions lie on the separatrix, helps in obtaining soliton-like solutions of theories involving coupled fields. The method is applied to a system of equations studied extensively by Rajaraman. The ’t-Hooft-Polyakov monopole equations are then studied and we obtain the well-known monopole solutions in the Prasad-Sommerfeld limit (λ=0); for the case λ≠0, we succeed in obtaining a non-trivial algebraic constraint between the fields of the theory.

On the solutions of the Wick-Cutkosky model in the instantaneous approximation
By reexamining the analysis of Basu and Biswas, based on the stereographic projection method of Fock and Levy, it is shown that the general solution of the Wick-Cutkosky model in the instantaneous approximation, hitherto unreported, involves only one quantum number; this is contrasted with the well-known solution which involves two quantum numbers, but for which the spectrum is degenerate with respect to one of them. The latter situation is shown to hold under a rather special circumstance.

Temperature-modified Coulomb potential for the electron-proton system
The finite-temperature Schrödinger equation, derived recently from the Bethe-Salpeter equation for the bound states of an electron and a proton interacting via the instantaneous Coulomb interaction, is studied in the coordinate space. An expression for the temperature-modified Coulomb potential is obtained and briefly discussed.

Relativistic remnants in the reduction of the Bethe-Salpeter equation to the Schrödinger equation
G P Malik Santokh Singh Vijaya S Varma
Following Salpeter, the Bethe-Salpeter equation for the bound system of two oppositely charged particles is reduced to a Schrödinger equation for each of the following cases: (a) both particles are spin 1/2 particles, (b) one particle is a spinor while the other is spinless, and (c) both particles are spinless. It is shown that if

Mass spectrum of elementary particles in a temperature-dependent model
G P Malik Santokh Singh Vijaya S Varma
We show that the temperature-generalization of a popular model of quark-confinement seems to provide a rather interesting insight into the origin of mass of elementary particles: as the universe cooled, there was an era when particles did not have an identity since their masses were variable; the temperature at which the conversion of these ‘nomadic’ particles into ‘elementary’ particles took place seems to have been governed by the value of a dimension-less coupling constant
