Remarks on excited states of affine Toda solitons

G. M. Gandenberger, Niall MacKay

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The identification in affine Toda field theory of the quantum particle with the lowest breather allows us to re-interpret discrete modes of excitation of solitons breathers bound to solitons, and thus to investigate them through the proposed solition-breather S-matrices. There are implications for the physical spectrum and for the semiclassical soliton mass corrections.
