Nicholas S. Manton (University of Cambridge) | Skyrmions, Topology and Instantons  |


I will review the Skyrme model, and how Skyrmions are used to model nucleons and nuclei. I will then discuss the relationship, both topological and energetic, between Skyrmions in 3-dimensions and Yang-Mills instantons in 4-dimensions.
