Topological solitons in chiral magnetism
Topological solitons in nonlinear field theories have attracted the interest of physicists, e.g. in the context of elementary particles, and mathematicians, e.g. in the context of large solutions to geometric PDE. A common goal is to understand the mechanisms which lead to the stabilization of such localized and topologically nontrivial field configurations. In this talk we shall focus on the effect of chiral symmetry breaking due to Lifshitz invariants featured in various condensed matter systems including in particular magnets without inversion symmetry, where the recent experimental discovery of so-called "chiral skyrmions" has raised the hope to use topology as a concept for future information technologies.
