Special Issue on Topological Solitons as Particles

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

This special issue is devoted to the 70th birthday of Nicholas Manton and the centenary of the birth of Tony Skyrme.

The general scope of the special issue is the theory of topological solitons and their application to physics. Submissions should report new and original results on topological solitons, interpreted widely. Examples include, but are not restricted to, kinks, vortices, textures, baby Skyrmions, magnetic Skyrmions, Skyrmions, magnetic monopoles, sphalerons or instantons. Papers dealing with particle-like aspects of topological solitons are particularly welcome.

There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is February 28, 2023.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

All articles will go through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.

If you have your paper ready earlier than the deadline, we encourage you to send it now. The reviewing process starts once the paper is submitted and we will publish the paper as soon as the positive publication decision is made. The paper will be indexed in the relevant databases as soon as it is published without waiting for completion of the special issue.
