Twistor structures and boost-invariant solutions to field equations
- 29 Downloads
We start with a brief overview of a non-Lagrangian approach to field theory based on a generalization of the Kerr-Penrose theorem and algebraic twistor equations. Explicit algorithms for obtaining the set of fundamental (Maxwell, SL(2,ℂ)-Yang-Mills, spinor Weyl and curvature) fields associated with every solution of the basic system of algebraic equations are presented. The notion of a boost-invariant solution is introduced, and the unique axially-symmetric and boost-invariant solution which can be generated by twistor functions is obtained, together with the associated fields. It is found that this solution possesses a wide variety of point-, string- and membrane-like singularities exhibiting nontrivial dynamics and transmutations.
