Semiclassical methods for unstable states

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We find a role for previously rejected unstable solitons. They describe processes by which a metastable vacuum state decays. Using these solutions we find a halflife for such states which agrees with that obtained by more restrictive methods.
