Topological Solitons Seminar: A Skyrme model approach to the spin-orbit force

Presented by Christopher Halcrow, DAMTP, Cambridge

5 November 2014 13:00 in CM221

The spin-orbit force is a vital tool in describing finite nuclei and nucleon interactions; however its microscopic origin is not fully understood. The Skyrme Model provides a classical explanation for the force based on the pion field structure of separated Skyrmions. In this talk I will briefly review the Skyrme Model and the spin-orbit force before setting up and solving a precise, simplified model of interacting Skyrmions.
