Skyrmions and the alpha-particle model of nuclei.

Battye, R. A. and Manton, N. S. and Sutcliffe, P. M. (2007) 'Skyrmions and the alpha-particle model of nuclei.', Proceedings of the Royal Society A : mathematical, physical and engineering sciences., 463 (2077). pp. 261-279.


We compute new solutions of the Skyrme model with massive pions. Concentrating on baryon numbers which are multiples of four, we find low-energy Skyrmion solutions that are composed of charge four subunits, as in the alpha-particle model of nuclei. We summarize our current understanding of these solutions, and discuss their relationship to configurations in the alpha-particle model.
