A conference to celebrate the 60th birthday of Professor N. Manton
Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics
University of Cambridge
19th - 22nd Sept, 2012
Topological solitons constitute a research area at the interface of geometry, nuclear and particle physics, cosmology and solid state physics. Nick Manton has fundamentally shaped the field through several pioneering contributions, among them the discovery of the sphaleron (together with Klinkhamer), the introduction of the moduli space approximation to soliton dynamics, and work on Skyrmions. The purpose of the meeting is to mark Nick Manton's 60th birthday with two days of talks reviewing recent developments in the subject.
