A new type of three-dimensional magnetic soliton in easy-axis ferromagnets is predicted by taking simultaneous account of the Dzyaloshinsky-Moriya interaction and an external magnetic field. The numerically obtained static three-dimensional solitons with a finite energy are characterized by a Hopf topological index H=0 and have a vortex structure. The structure of these solitons and the dependence of their energy on the external field are determined. The asymptotic behavior of these solitons is…

Skyrmions and spirals in cubic chiral magnets
Magnetic skyrmions are two-dimensional topologicallyprotected spin textureswith particle like properties which may crystallize inlattices that are typically oriented perpendicular to the magnetic
Contact topology and the structure and dynamics of cholesterics
Using tools and concepts from contact topology we show that non-vanishing twist implies conservation of the layer structure in cholesteric liquid crystals. This leads to a number of additional
Finite-element dynamic-matrix approach for propagating spin waves: Extension to mono- and multilayers of arbitrary spacing and thickness
In our recent work (Ref. 1), we presented an efficient numerical method to compute dispersions and spatial mode profiles of spin waves propagating in waveguides with translationally invariant


Closed-vortex-type solitons with Hopf index
The structure of three dimensional solitons with non-trivial Hopf index is investigated for the S2 nonlinear sigma -model. It is shown that the corresponding regular solutions are of closed-vortex
The Properties of Isolated Magnetic Vortices
Isolated magnetic vortices are stabilized by an antisymmetric exchange interaction, the so-called Dzyaloshinsky interaction, which can be represented as an energy contribution linear in the first
Propagating Magnetic Vortex Rings in Ferromagnets
It is shown that bulk ferromagnets support propagating nonlinear modes that are analogous to the vortex rings, or ``smoke rings,'' of fluid dynamics. These are circular loops of magnetic vorticity
Static solitons with nonzero Hopf number
We investigate a generalized nonlinear O(3) {sigma} model in three space dimensions where the fields are maps from R{sup 3}{union}{l_brace}{infinity}{r_brace} to S{sup 2}. Such maps are classified by
