Abstract This article is based on a series of lectures given at ELAF 93 on the description of low-energy hadronic systems in and out of hadronic medium. The focus is put on identifying, with the help of a Cheshire Cat philosophy, the effective degrees of freedom relevant for the strong interactions from a certain number of generic symmetry properties of QCD. The matters treated are the ground-state and excited-state properties of light- and heavy-quark baryons and applications to nuclei and… Expand
▪ Abstract This review is devoted to discussion of hadron properties in the nuclear medium and their relationship to the partial restoration of chiral symmetry. Special attention is given to theExpand
Cheshire Cat Scenario in a 3 + 1 dimensional Hybrid Chiral Bag
Abstract The total energy in the two-phase chiral bag model is studied, including the contribution due to the bag (Casimir energy plus energy of the valence quarks), as well as the one coming fromExpand
Baryon as a Quantum Hall Droplet and the Cheshire Cat Principle
We show that the recent proposal to describe the $N_f=1$ baryon in the large number of color limit as a quantum Hall droplet, can be understood as a chiral bag in a 1+2 dimensional strip using theExpand
Baryons in a covariant and confining diquark - quark model
In a covariant model where constituent quarks and diquarks interact through quark exchange, the Bethe-Salpeter equation in ladder approximation for octet and decuplet baryons is solved. Quark andExpand
Model of a hybrid chiral bag involving constituent quarks
A three-phase modification of the hybrid quark-bag model is considered. In addition to the asymptotic-freedom and the hadronization phase, it includes the intermediate phase of constituent quarks. InExpand
The nucleon as a holographic Cheshire cat
Abstract The Cheshire cat principle emerges naturally from the holographic approach of the nucleon in terms of a bulk instanton. The cat hides in the holographic direction. I briefly review theExpand
Fractionalized Quasiparticles and the Hadron-Quark Duality in Dense Baryonic Matter
Drawing from certain analogies to highly correlated condensed matter, I sketch an admittedly speculative scenario on how baryonic matter could turn into a Fermi liquid of fractionalized baryonsExpand
Renormalization of the casimir energy in the (1+1)-dimensional fermion-bag models
The ground-state energy in the two-phase hybrid chiral fermion-bag model involving boson-fermion interaction is studied in (1+1)-dimensional spacetime. A procedure for renormalizing the divergentExpand
A new topological “twist” to BR scaling
Abstract When vector mesons are considered on the same footing as pions as suggested by hidden local symmetry, the property of the nuclear tensor forces is strongly controlled by the behavior of theExpand
Chiral symmetry and effective field theories for hadronic, nuclear and stellar matter
Abstract Chiral symmetry, first entering in nuclear physics in the 1970s for which Gerry Brown played a seminal role, has led to a stunningly successful framework for describing strongly-correlatedExpand


Are all hadrons alike
Abstract Using the existing knowledge of the chromodynamic vacuum as a basis we investigate mesons built from u, d, s quarks and/or gluons. A new classification of hadrons is proposed which reflectsExpand
The hyperons as skyrmions with vector mesons
Abstract We show that when “strong” vector mesons are suitably incorporated, the SU(3) skyrmion model of Callan and Klebanov works very well to O ( 1 N c ) . A simplified model with an ω and φ isExpand
Bound-state approach to strangeness in the Skyrme model
Abstract We show that baryons carrying heavy flavors, such as strangeness and charm, can be described by bound states of the corresponding heavy mesons in the background field of the basic SU(2)Expand
Charmed baryons as soliton - D meson bound states
We show that charmed baryons are remarkably well described as bound states of the D mesons with a soliton. The scheme exploits the isospin-spin transmutation that takes place when a doubletExpand
On the Casimir energy of a skyrmion
Abstract We evaluate the leading correction to the classical skyrmion mass, that is, the Casimir energy. We use a method which is well defined in the chiral limit. The main ultraviolet divergence isExpand
Skyrmions and the nuclear force.
It is shown that a calculation using the Born-Oppenheimer approximation, properly taking into account the mixing of nucleon resonances, leads to substantial central attraction and a potential is obtained in qualitative agreement with phenomenological potentials. Expand
A Unified Field Theory of Mesons and Baryons
Abstract Some aspects of a field theory, similar to but more realistic than, that examined in the preceding paper are discussed. The way in which a non-linear meson field theory of this type mayExpand
Quantum corrections to nucleon and delta mass in the Skyrme model
Abstract In analogy to recent results for low-energy π N scattering the self-energy corrections due to the O(1) background scattering are approximated by including only the zero-mode contributions toExpand
Chiral symmetry breaking in the bound state hyperon model
Abstract It is shown that the effective binding of the flavoured meson in the bound state model for the hyperons is significantly reduced if the chiral symmetry breaking term in the lagrangianExpand
Static properties of baryons from an SU(3) pseudoscalar vector meson lagrangian
Abstract We study static properties of 1 2 + baryons in the context of the collective treatment of the SU(3) Skyrme model with vector mesons, which recently has provided a good fit to massExpand
