Creating Vortons and Knot Solitons via Domain Wall Pair Annihilation in BEC and Field Theory

Presented by: 
M Nitta Keio University
Friday 7th December 2012 - 11:20 to 11:40
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Topological Solitons
Session Chair: 
Konrad Bajer
We show that when a vortex-string is stretched between a pair of a domain wall and an anti-domain wall in two component Bose-Einstein condensates, there remains a vorton after the pair annihilation. We also show that the same configuration in the mass deformed Faddeev-Skyrme model results in a knot soliton (Hopfion) after the pair annihilation.
