Abstract
The Skyrme model is a nonlinear field theory whose solitonic solutions, once quantised, describe atomic nuclei. The classical static soliton solutions, socalled Skyrmions, have interesting symmetries and can only be calculated numerically. Mathematically, these Skyrmions can be viewed as maps between two threemanifolds and, as such, their stable singularities can only be folds, cusps and swallowtails. Physically, the occurrence of singularities is related to negative baryon density. In this paper, we calculate the charge three Skyrmion to a high resolution in order to examine its singularity structure in detail. Thereby, we explore regions of negative baryon density. We also discuss how the negative baryon density depends on the pion mass.
