A restriction of the baby Skyrme model consisting of the quartic and potential terms only is investigated in detail for a wide range of potentials. Further, its properties are compared with those of the corresponding full baby Skyrme models. We find that topological (charge) as well as geometrical (nucleus/shell shape) features of baby Skyrmions are captured already by the soliton solutions of the restricted model. Further, we find a coincidence between the compact or noncompact nature of…

A BPS Skyrme model
Within the set of generalized Skyrme models, we identify a submodel which has both infinitely many symmetries and a Bogomolny bound which is saturated by infinitely many exact soliton solutions.
Symmetries and exact solutions of the BPS Skyrme model
The BPS Skyrme model is a specific subclass of Skyrme-type field theories which possesses both a BPS bound and infinitely many soliton solutions (skyrmions) saturating that bound. A related property,
The existence of Bogomolny decomposition for baby Skyrme models
We derive the Bogomolny decompositions (Bogomolny equations) for: full baby Skyrme model and for its restricted version (so called, pure baby Skyrme model), in (2+0) dimensions, by using so called,
The gauged BPS baby Skyrme model
The baby Skyrme model is a well-known nonlinear field theory supporting topological solitons in two space dimensions. In the limit where the term quadratic in derivatives (the "sigma model term")
Baby Skyrme model, near-BPS approximations, and supersymmetric extensions
We study the baby Skyrme model as a theory that interpolates between two distinct BPS systems. For this a near-BPS approximation can be used which, however, involves a small deviation from each of
Extended supersymmetry and BPS solutions in baby Skyrme models
A bstractWe continue the investigation of supersymmetric extensions of baby Skyrme models in d = 2 + 1 dimensions. In a first step, we show that the CP(1) form of the baby Skyrme model allows for the
Near-BPS baby Skyrmions
We consider the baby-Skyrme model in the regime close to the so-called restricted baby-Skyrme model, which is a BPS model with area-preserving diffeomorphism invariance. The perturbation takes the
BPS Skyrme model and baryons at large N c
Within the class of field theories with the field content of the Skyrme model, one submodel can be found which consists of the square of the baryon current and a potential term only. For this


Review of Rotational Symmetry Breaking in Baby Skyrme Models
We discuss one of the most interesting phenomena exhibited by baby skyrmions – breaking of rotational symmetry. The topics we will deal with here include the appearance of rotational symmetry
Q-balls in the regularized signum-Gordon model
The regularized signum-Gordon potential has a smooth minimum and is linear in the modulus of the field value for higher amplitudes. The Q-ball solutions in this model are investigated. Their
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)
