Abstract

Oscillons are remarkably long living, localized and nearly periodic configurations that form in a variety of nonlinear theories. In this short note we review oscillons in the spherically symmetric sector of φ4 theory in 3 + 1 dimensions. Oscillons can be characterized as the core part of strictly periodic weakly localized solutions, called quasi-breathers.
