On the global behaviour of symmetric Skyrmions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

It is shown that the chiral angle, θ(r), of the hedgehog (symmetric) Skyrmions with an arbitrary baryon number, is a strictly decreasing or increasing function. For large values of r>0, θ(r) is strictly convex or concave. As r→∞, θ(r) and θ′(r) approach their limit values at the rate O rfor any α∈(0,2).
