  title={Selected papers, with commentary, of Tony Hilton Royle Skyrme},
  author={G. E. Brown},
The most important papers of Tony Hilton Royle Skyrme are collected in this volume which also includes commentaries by G. Brown, selected papers by Tony Skyrme and also articles related to the life as well as the work of Tony Skyrme, R. Dalitz, E. Witten and others. Skyrme's work provided an original solution to the problem of constructing fermions from bosons, formulating the topological soliton model of the nucleon. His two-parameter model of effective interactions in nuclei has yielded a… Expand
A Planar Skyrme-Like Model
After an introduction of solitons with emphasis in elementary particle theory, we present a non-linear O(3) model in (2 + 1) dimensions modified by the addition of both a potential-like and aExpand
Solitons and black holes in a generalized Skyrme model with dilaton-quarkonium field
Skyrme theory is among the viable effective theories which emerge from the low-energy limit of quantum chromodynamics. Many of its generalizations include also a dilaton. Here we find newExpand
Geiger–Nuttall law for Schrödinger solitons
Based on the formal analogy between soliton tunneling through a classically forbidden potential barrier and –particle tunneling and decay we introduce a ‘toy solitonic model of a nucleus’ and showExpand
Review of Nontopological Solitons in Theories with U(1)-Symmetry
We provide a review of non-topological solitonic solutions arising in theories with a complex scalar field and global or gauge $U(1)$-symmetry. It covers Q-balls, homogeneous charged scalarExpand
Conditional Global Existence and Scattering for a Semi-Linear Skyrme Equation with Large Data
We study a generalization of energy super-critical wave maps due to Adkins and Nappi that can also be viewed as a simplified version of the Skyrme model. These are maps from 1 + 3 dimensionalExpand
Chiral bag model for the nucleon
Abstract We review the chiral bag model for the nucleon at low energy. The model is a hybrid model of quark and meson degrees of freedom, interpolating the two limits of the Skyrme model at R → 0 andExpand
Low-lying pentaquark baryons in pseudoscalar-vector SU(3) Skyrme model
For the first time the low-lying J = 1/2 pentaquark states are investigated in the pseudoscalar-vector Skyrme model. Once the conventional baryon properties are fit, other states are predictedExpand
A finite element approach to the two-Skyrmion problem☆
Abstract A finite element approach is applied to find the static solution of two solitions in the Skyrme model for low-energy QCD. Because of the possibility to use unevenly spaced lattices,Expand
Revisiting the Faddeev-Skyrme model and Hopf solitons
We observe that the Faddeev-Skyrme model emerges as a low-energy limit of scalar QED with two charged scalar fields and a selfinteraction potential of a special form (inspired by supersymmetric QCD).Expand
Time Evolution of the Radial Perturbations and Linear Stability of Solitons and Black Holes in a Generalized Skyrme Model
We study the time evolution of the radial perturbation for self-gravitating soliton and black-hole solutions in a generalized Skyrme model in which a dilaton is present. The background solutions wereExpand
