Mathematics and Physics of Higher-Dimensional Solitons

 20th - 28th July 1998  University of Durham

The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers from many diverse areas such as: BPS solitons
(eg monopoles), soliton scattering, baby-skyrmions and applications to solid-state physics, skyrmions and applications to nuclear physics, Hopfions (knot-like solitons having nonzero Hopf number, with possible applications in cosmology), non-topological solitons, and solitons in integrable systems..
We expect most participants to arrive on Monday 20th  July and the lecture programme starting
in the morning of 21st July.

Financial Arrangements

The LMS has provided with funds which allow us to cover the accommodation expenses
of the invited participants and make a contribution to the travel costs which in some cases is no
more than the registration fee.


Durham is conveniently located on the east-coast railway line, for which time-tables are available on-line. A map of Durham showing the location of the railway station, the Mathematics department and Grey College can be found here.


All nonlocal participants will be accommodated in  rooms (with en-suite facilities) in
in Grey College . Participants are expected to arrive on Monday 20th July (in time for dinner at 19.00)
and depart in the morning of 28th July.
