Abstract

The comparison of symmetries in the interior and the exterior of a domain wall is relevant when discussing the correspondence between domain walls and branes, and also when studying the interaction of walls and magnetic monopoles. I discuss the symmetries in the context of an [Formula Presented] model (for odd N) with a single adjoint scalar field. Situations in which the wall interior has less symmetry than the vacuum are easy to construct while the reverse situation requires significant engineering of the scalar potential.
