Spontaneous skyrmion ground states in magnetic metals

  author={Ulrich K. R{\"o}\ssler and Alexei N. Bogdanov and Christian Pfleiderer},
Since the 1950s, Heisenberg and others have addressed the problem of how to explain the appearance of countable particles in continuous fields. Stable localized field configurations were searched for an ingredient for a general field theory of elementary particles, but the majority of nonlinear field models were unable to predict them. As an exception, Skyrme succeeded in describing nuclear particles as localized states, so-called ‘skyrmions’. Skyrmions are a characteristic of nonlinear… CONTINUE READING
