### Adding crust to BPS Skyrme neutron stars

- PhysicsPhysical Review D
- 2020

The Skyrme model and its generalisations provide a conceptually appealing field-theory basis for the description of nuclear matter and, after its coupling to gravity, also of neutron stars. In…

### BPS Skyrme neutron stars in generalized gravity

- PhysicsJournal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics
- 2020

We study the coupling of nuclear matter described by the BPS Skyrme model to generalized gravity. Concretely, we consider the Starobinsky model which provides the leading-order correction to the…

### Neutron stars within the Skyrme model

- PhysicsInternational Journal of Modern Physics E
- 2019

The Skyrme model is a low energy effective field theory of strong interactions where nuclei and baryons appear as collective excitations of pionic degrees of freedom. In the last years, there has…

### A false vacuum Skyrme model for nuclear matter

- PhysicsJournal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics
- 2022

The low energy regime of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) presents enormous challenges due to its large coupling. Eﬀective ﬁeld theories, like the Skyrme model, are useful approaches to study…

### Baryon chemical potential and in-medium properties of BPS skyrmions

- Physics
- 2015

We continue the investigation of thermodynamical properties of the Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) Skyrme model. In particular, we analytically compute the baryon chemical potential both in the…

### Quasiuniversal relations for generalized Skyrme stars

- PhysicsPhysical Review D
- 2021

First proposed in 2013 by Yagi and Yunes, the quasi-universal \emph{I-Love-Q relations} consist of a set of relations between the moment of inertia, the spin-induced quadrupole moment and the…

### BPS sectors of the Skyrme model and their non-BPS extensions

- Physics
- 2017

Two recently found coupled Bogomol’nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) submodels of the Skyrme model are further analyzed. First, we provide a geometrical formulation of the submodels in terms of the…

### A new consistent neutron star equation of state from a generalized Skyrme model

### Slowly rotating anisotropic neutron stars in general relativity and scalar–tensor theory

- Physics
- 2014

Some models (such as the Skyrme model, a low-energy effective field theory for quantum chromodynamics) suggest that the high-density matter prevailing in neutron star (NS) interiors may be…

### Gravitating gauged BPS baby Skyrmions

- PhysicsPhysical Review D
- 2019

We show that the minimally gauged BPS baby Skyrme model remains a BPS theory after coupling with gravity that is the topologically nontrivial configurations called baby Skyrmions carrying magnetic…

### Near-BPS Skyrmions: Non-shell configurations and Coulomb effects

- Physics
- 2012

The relatively small binding energy in nuclei suggests that they may be well represented by near-BPS Skyrmions since their mass is roughly proportional to the baryon number $A.$ For that purpose, we…

### Nuclear binding energies from a Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield Skyrme model

- Physics
- 2013

Recently, within the space of generalized Skyrme models, a submodel with a Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) bound was identified that reproduces some bulk properties of nuclear matter already on…

### Phase Transition and Anisotropic Deformations of Neutron Star Matter

- Physics, Geology
- 2012

The Skyrme model is a low energy, effective field theory for QCD which when coupled to a gravitational field provides an ideal semi-classical model to describe neutron stars. We use the Skyrme…

### Light Nuclei of Even Mass Number in the Skyrme Model

- Physics
- 2009

We consider the semiclassical rigid-body quantization of Skyrmion solutions of mass numbers $B=4,6,8,10$, and 12. We determine the allowed quantum states for each Skyrmion and find that they often…

### Skyrmions, instantons and holography

- Physics
- 2010

Some time ago, Atiyah and Manton observed that computing the holonomy of Yang-Mills instantons yields good approximations to static Skyrmion solutions of the Skyrme model. This paper provides an…

### Skyrmions in a truncated BPS theory

- Physics
- 2011

Recently, it has been shown that (4 + 1)-dimensional Yang-Mills theory may be written as a (3 + 1)-dimensional BPS Skyrme model, in which the Skyrme field is coupled toan infinite tower of vector…

### Thermodynamics of the BPS Skyrme model

- Physics
- 2014

One problem in the application of the Skyrme model to nuclear physics is that it predicts too large a value for the compression modulus of nuclear matter. Here we investigate the thermodynamics of…
