Mass loss and longevity of gravitationally bound oscillating scalar lumps (oscillatons) in D dimensions

Spherically symmetric oscillatons (also referred to as oscillating soliton stars) i.e. gravitationally bound oscillating scalar lumps are considered in theories containing a massive self-interacting real scalar field coupled to Einstein’s gravity in 1+D dimensional spacetimes. Oscillations are know...
