Abstract

We solve the equations of motion of classical scalar electrodynamics for a fixed source in electromagnetic interaction with a scalar field. We find that above some critical coupling strength there exist field configurations corresponding to a partial screening of the external source, which have a lower energy than the pure Coulomb (with zero scalar field) solution. Thus, in classical scalar electrodynamics, there is an upper limit on the charge of stable external sources.
