The ambitious aim of this project is to provide the missing link between fundamental theory and nuclear physics.At the heart of the methodology for this audacious proposal is a concept known as a topological soliton -- a particle-like solution of a nonlinear wave equation, where stability is due to a topological twisting or winding.
This section will focus on extracting the shock wave solutions to the KGZ equation (1) and (2) that are also known as topological soliton solution.
Finally, the numerical simulation that was conducted using finite difference scheme leads to the simulations for the topological soliton solutions.
In [5, 6], the ansatz method is applied to obtain the topological soliton solution of the generalized Rosenau-KdV equation.

In this model, there appear particle-like excitations as topological solitons. Their mass is field energy only.
The investigations seem to support the conjecture that the particles we find in experiments are topological solitons characterised by topological quantum numbers.
of Kent, UK) provide discussion of the state of research concerning topological solitons. Chapters contain discussion of solitons in classical field theories and the forces that exist between solitons, a survey of static and dynamic multi-soliton solutions, and discussion of kinks in one dimension, lumps and vortices in two dimensions, monopoles and Skyrmions in three dimensions, and instantons in four dimensions.
The thesis of the project is: that by careful control of the constituent nanostructure properties, a 3-dimensional medium can be created in which a large number of topological solitons can exist.
