Screening three-form fields

T. Barreiro, U. Bertello, N. J. Nunes

Abstract
Screening mechanisms for a three-form field around a dense source such as the Sun are investigated. Working with the dual vector, we can obtain a thin-shell where field interactions are short range. The field outside the source adopts the configuration of a dipole which is a manifestly distinct behaviour from the one obtained with a scalar field or even a previously proposed vector field model. We identify the region of parameter space where this model satisfies present solar system tests. (C) 2017 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V.
