Topological Solitons Seminar: Dyonic Instanton and Motion on the Moduli Space with Potential

Presented by M. Zamaklar and K. Peeters, Durham

31 January 2007 14:15 in CM221

In this talk we will first revise various ways in which known field theory solitons apear in the context of string theory. We will then describe a new soliton in gauge theory, the "dyonic intanton" whose construction is inspired by string theory. (this part by M. Zamaklar)

In the second part part of the talk, we will revise the basic idea of the moduli space approximation. We will then show how this approximation, generalised to include a potential, can be used to
describe the dynamics of multiple dyonic instantons (this part by K. Peeters)
