Analytic tunneling solutions for particle physics models

This paper develops new mathematical techniques to find exact, analytical solutions for quantum tunneling rates in particle physics models with multiple scalar fields. These solutions illuminate dependencies of decay rates on parameters. They serve as approximations and benchmarks for realistic potentials and numerical codes studying vacuum instability. The method is extended to include gravitational effects.
