Relations among topological solitons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We clarify relations among topological solitons in various dimensions: a domain wall, non-Abelian vortex, magnetic monopole, and Yang-Mills instanton, together with a (non-Abelian) sine-Gordon soliton, baby skyrmion (lump), and skyrmion. We construct a composite configuration consisting of a domain wall, vortex, magnetic monopole, and Yang-Mills instanton (wall-vortex-monopole-instanton) using the effective theory technique or moduli approximation. Removing some solitons from such a composite, we obtain all possible composite solitons in the form of solitons within a soliton, including all the previously known configurations, yielding relations among topological solitons.
