Attractive Channel Skyrmions and the Deuteron

  title={Attractive Channel Skyrmions and the Deuteron},
  author={R. A. Leese and Nicholas S. Manton},
The deuteron is described as a quantum state on a ten-dimensional manifold M 10 of Skyrme fields of degree two, which are obtained by calculating the holonomy of SU (2) instantons. The manifold M 10 includes both toroidal configurations of minimal energy and configurations which are approximately the product of two Skyrmions in the most attractive relative… CONTINUE READING
