LMS DURHAM SYMPOSIUM
Mathematics and Physics of
20th - 28th July 1998 University
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
We expect most participants to arrive on Monday 20th July and
the lecture programme starting
in the morning of 21st July.
The LMS has provided with funds which allow us to cover the accommodation
