SIG IV - 24-26 June and 07-09 July 2015

Solitons and non-perturbative QCD

Lectures on solitons and QCD in non-perturbative regime - mathematical properties and applications to baryon physics, nuclear matter and neutron stars.

As always, the aim of this informal workshop is to increase interaction (and possible future collaboration) between Skyrme oriented physicists and mathematicians. So, we are mainly focused on discussions. Therefore, we plan to have only 2-3 talks every day. The tentative detailed topics are:

  • QCD effective models: Nambu-Jona-Lasino, Bag model, Skyrme models
  • nuclear matter EoS
  • neutron stars and quark stars
  • Skyrme fluids
  • supersymmetric skyrmions
  • topological defects and Bogomolny equations
