The cover illustration is an artistic impression of surfaces of constant baryon density for a bound state of three SU(3) Skyrmions, obtained from an ansatz involving rational maps. We briefly discuss Skyrmions, which are solitons that model nuclei, together with the rational map ansatz; giving just enough detail to explain the illustration.
