On the Topological Charges of Affine Toda Solitons

  title={On the Topological Charges of Affine Toda Solitons},
  author={Jonathan Underwood},
We provide a proof of a formula conjectured in [1] for some coefficients relevant in the principal vertex operator construction of a simply-laced affine algebra ĝ. These coefficients are important for the study of the topological charges of the solitons of affine Toda theories, and the construction of representations of non-simply-laced ĝ and their associated Toda solitons.
