Topological Effects in Particle Physics
monopoles, instantons, sphalerons, vortices and skyrmions
We dedicate the workshop to the memory of our unforgettable friend and collaborator Ricardo VazquezAs always, the aim of this informal workshop is to increase interactions (and possible future collaboration) between topological solitons oriented physicists and mathematicians. And as always, we are mainly focused on discussion. Therefore, there will be only two talks per day with a lot of time for informal talks and discussions. This year we want to look closer on the role of topological solitons in Particle Physics, which includes both fundamental theories as Electroweak theory or Quantum Chromodynamics but also related effective models like the Skyrme model. To keep the informal and cosy atmosphere we have to have a reasonable upper bound for the number of the participants, which we estimate to be 15 persons in each week. However, the workshop will be held in a hybrid form with unlimited access for online participants.
