Abstract: We give a rigorous proof that for small positive values of the cosmological constant the Einstein equations coupled to an SU(2) Yang-Mills connection yield oscillating spacetimes. These are static, spherically symmetric spacetimes that have the same topology as particle-like spacetimes but differ in geometry. We also give a strict upper bound on values of the cosmological constant that admit such spacetimes.
