Fermions coupled to skyrmions on S**3

Krusch, Steffen (2003) Fermions coupled to skyrmions on S**3. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and General, 36 (29). pp. 8141-8163. ISSN 0305-4470. (doi:10.1088/0305-4470/36/29/318) (KAR id:6067)


This paper discusses Skyrmions on the 3-sphere coupled to fermions. The resulting Dirac equation commutes with a generalized angular momentum G. For G = 0 the Dirac equation can be solved explicitly for a constant Skyrme configuration and also for a SO(4) symmetric hedgehog configuration. We discuss how the spectrum changes due to the presence of a non-trivial winding number, and also consider more general Skyrme configurations numerically.
