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, concept of strong necessary conditions. It turns out that Bogomolny decomposition can be derived for restricted baby Skyrme model for arbitrary form of the potential term, while for full baby Skyrme model, such derivation is possible only for some class of the potentials.

Bogomolny equations in certain generalized baby BPS Skyrme models
By using the concept of strong necessary conditions (CSNCs), we derive Bogomolny equations and Bogomol’nyi–Prasad–Sommerfield (BPS) bounds for two certain modifications of the baby BPS Skyrme model:

Using the concept of strong necessary conditions (CSNC), we derive Bogomolny equations and BPS bounds for two modifications of the gauged baby BPS Skyrme model: the nonminimal coupling to the gauge
Bogomolny equations for the BPS Skyrme models with impurity
We show that the BPS Skyrme model, as well as its (2+1) dimensional baby version (restricted), can be coupled with an impurity in the BPS preserving manner. The corresponding Bogomolny equations are
Topological phase transitions in the gauged BPS baby Skyrme model
A bstractWe demonstrate that the gauged BPS baby Skyrme model with a double vacuum potential allows for phase transitions from a non-solitonic to a solitonic phase, where the latter corresponds to a

A bstractIn many nonlinear field theories, relevant solutions may be found by reducing the order of the original Euler-Lagrange equations, e.g., to first order equations (Bogomolnyi equations,

Boundary or initial conditions have been formulated for the solutions of ordinary and partial differential equations created by the strong necessery conditions.

Using the concept of strong necessary conditions (CSNC), we derive a complete decomposition of the minimal Skyrme model into a sum of three coupled BPS submodels with the same topological bound. The


Investigation of restricted baby Skyrme models
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
Compact baby skyrmions
For the baby Skyrme model with a specific potential, compacton solutions, i.e., configurations with a compact support and parabolic approach to the vacuum, are derived. Specifically, in the
Easy plane baby Skyrmions
The baby Skyrme model is studied with a novel choice of potential, V = 1/2φ 2 3 . This "easy plane" potential vanishes at the equator of the target two-sphere. Hence, in contrast to previously
Solitons in a baby-Skyrme model with invariance under area-preserving diffeomorphisms
We study the properties of soliton solutions in an analogue of the Skyrme model in 2+1 dimensions whose Lagrangian contains the Skyrme term and the mass term, but no usual kinetic term. The model
Compactons and semi-compactons in the extreme baby Skyrme model
The static baby Skyrme model is investigated in the extreme limit where the energy functional contains only the potential and Skyrme terms, but not the Dirichlet energy term. It is shown that the
Fun with Baby-Skyrmions
We consider the limiting case of the O(3) nonlinear sigma model where the kinetic term (equivalently the spin-stiffness term) is absent. The model obtained has an interesting integrability. The

We study static solutions of the Skyrme model on the 2-sphere of radius L, for various choices of potential. The high-density Skyrmion phase corresponds to the ratio β = L/(size of Skyrmion) being

The concept of strong necessary conditions for the extremum of a functional to exist, has been applied to analyse the existence of the Bogomolny decomposition for a system of two coupled nonlinear
Towards a phase diagram of the 2D Skyrme model
We discuss calculations of the phase diagram of the baby Skyrme model, a two-dimensional version of the model that has been so successful in the description of baryons. Contact is made with the
