Welcome to the Smörgåsbord of Skyrmions!



Click on a Skyrmion to see all the solutions of a given baryon number, first reported in this paper by Sven Bjarke Gudnason and Chris Halcrow. Please cite our paper if you find this page useful for your research. The solutions are calculated for a dimensionless pion mass equal to one. Hover over a Skyrmion to discover its baryon number.
The above Skyrmions are the global minimizers of their respective baryon number; notice though that there are two B=5 and two B=8 Skyrmions, which are so close in energy that we cannot tell which is the global minimizer within our numerical precision.

If you find any mistakes, or think you have a better description of any of solutions, please let us know. Our contact details can be found in the paper.
