Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications (SIGMA)

Special Issue on Topological Solitons as Particles

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

Bernd J. Schroers (Heriot-Watt University, UK)
Martin Speight (University of Leeds, UK)
Paul Sutcliffe (Durham University, UK)

This special issue is devoted to the 70th birthday of Nicholas Manton and the centenary of the birth of Tony Skyrme.

The general scope of the special issue is the theory of topological solitons and their application to physics. Submissions should report new and original results on topological solitons, interpreted widely. Examples include, but are not restricted to, kinks, vortices, textures, baby Skyrmions, magnetic Skyrmions, Skyrmions, magnetic monopoles, sphalerons or instantons. Papers dealing with particle-like aspects of topological solitons are particularly welcome.

There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is May 31, 2023.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

All articles will go through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.
