• On Topological Solitons in The Faddeev-Skyrme Model and its Extensions 

      Jäykkä, Juha (Annales Universitatis Turkuensis AI 399, 26.06.2009)
      The topological solitons of two classical field theories, the Faddeev-Skyrme model and the Ginzburg-Landau model are studied numerically and analytically in this work. The aim is to gain information on the existence and ...
    • Spinor Bose-Einstein Condensates and Topological Defects 

      Mäkelä, Harri (Annales Universitatis Turkuensis AI 378, 01.12.2007)
      This thesis concentrates on the topological defects of spin-1 and spin-2 Bose-Einstein condensates, the ground states of spin-3 condensates, and the inert states of spinor condensates with arbitrary spin. Our work is based ...
