Abstract

We present a direct connection between torus knots and Hopfions by finding stable and static solutions of the extended Faddeev-Skyrme model with a ferromagnetic potential term. (P, Q)-torus knots consisting of |Q| sine-Gordon kink strings twisted P/Q times into the poloidal cycle along the toroidal cycle on a toroidal domain wall carry the Hopf charge P Q, which demonstrates that Hopfions can be further classified according to torus knot type.
