Abstract
We study spherically symmetric finite energy solutions of two HiggsChernSimonsYangMillsHiggs (HCSYMH) models in 3+1 dimensions, one with gauge group SO(5) and the other with SU(3). The ChernSimons (CS) densities are defined in terms of both the YangMills (YM) and Higgs fields and the choice of the two gauge groups is made so they do not vanish. The solutions of the SO(5) model carry only electric charge and zero magnetic charge, while the solutions of the SU(3) model are dyons carrying both electric and magnetic charges like the JuliaZee (JZ) dyon. Unlike the latter however, the electric charge in both models receives an important contribution from the CS dynamics. We pay special attention to the relation between the energies and charges of these solutions. In contrast with the electrically charged JZ dyon of the YangMillsHiggs (YMH) system, whose mass is larger than that of the electrically neutral (magnetic monopole) solutions, the masses of the electrically charged solutions of our HCSYMH models can be smaller than their electrically neutral counterparts in some parts of the parameter space. To establish this is the main task of this work, which is performed by constructing the HCSYMH solutions numerically. In the case of the SU(3) HCSYMH, we have considered the question of angular momentum, and it turns out that it vanishes.
