Numerical evidence is presented for the existence of a new family of static, globally regular 'cosmological' solutions of the spherically symmetric Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs equations. These solutions are characterized by two natural numbers (m ≥ 1, n ≥ 0), the number of nodes of the Yang-Mills and Higgs field respectively. The corresponding spacetimes are static with spatially compact sections with 3-sphere topology. (C) 2000 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
