Helical buckling of Skyrme-Faddeev solitons    [PDF]

David Foster, Derek Harland
Solitons in the Skyrme-Faddeev model on R^2xS^1 are shown to undergo buckling
transitions as the circumference of the S^1 is varied. These results support a
recent conjecture that solitons in this field theory are well-described by a
much simpler model of elastic rods.
