Abstract

We compute new solutions of the Skyrme model with massive pions. Concentrating on baryon numbers which are multiples of four, we find low-energy Skyrmion solutions that are composed of charge four subunits, as in the alpha-particle model of nuclei. We summarize our current understanding of these solutions, and discuss their relationship to configurations in the alpha-particle model.
