Field Theories and Vortices with Nontrivial Geometry

This thesis investigates aspects of field theories and soliton solutions with nontrivial topology. In particular we explore the following effective models: a limited sector of the scalar Electrowea

Analytical Analysis and Numerical Solution of Two Flavours Skyrmion

Two flavours Skyrmion will be analyzed analytically, in case of static and rotational Skyrme equations. Numerical solution of a nonlinear scalar field equation, i.e. the Skyrme equation, will be



Topological structures in field theories

The authors outline homotopy theory and its application to field theory. They describe topologically non-trivial field configurations occurring in the Abelian Higgs model, CPN models, O(N) sigma

The Geometry and Dynamics of Magnetic Monopoles

Systems governed by non-linear differential equations are of fundamental importance in all branches of science, but our understanding of them is still extremely limited. In this book a particular
