Abstract

Possible topological solitons (skyrmions) of four-dimensional supersymmetric nonlinear σ-models are investigated. The requirements of supersymmetry limit our study to the CP1 model. A stable soliton seems possible, but in the absence of a demonstrated lower-bound for the mass, the stability of the soliton is unproved. The semi-classical spectrum of the CP1 skyrmion, as well as its supersymmetric extension, is studied.
