  • Skyrmions -- beyond rigid body quantisation 

    Halcrow, Christopher James (2017-10-01)
    In the Skyrme model, nuclei are described as topological solitons known as Skyrmions. To make contact with nuclear data one must quantise these Skyrmions; most calculations to date have used rigid body quantisation, where ...
  • Zonal flows in accretion discs and their role in gravito-turbulence 

    Vanon, Riccardo (2017-10-01)
    This thesis focuses on the evolution of zonal flows in self-gravitating accretion discs and their resulting effect on disc stability; it also studies the process of disc gravito-turbulence, with particular emphasis given ...
  • Newtonian Twistor Theory 

    Gundry, James Michael (2017-10-01)
    In twistor theory the nonlinear graviton construction realises four-dimensional antiself- dual Einstein manifolds as Kodaira moduli spaces of rational curves in threedimensional complex manifolds. We establish a Newtonian ...
  • BPS Approaches to Anyons, Quantum Hall States and Quantum Gravity 

    Turner, Carl Peter (2017-10-03)
    We study three types of theories, using supersymmetry and ideas from string theory as tools to gain understanding of systems of more general interest. Firstly, we introduce non-relativistic Chern-Simons-matter field ...
