Soliton solutions in the SU(2) chiral quark model are studied for different values of a constituent mass M and quark axial-vector coupling g,4. It is shown that there exists a critical quark mass M,, above which the energetically stable soliton solutions appear. Moreover, as the constituent quark mass increases the soliton mass becomes smaller than the free-quark threshold.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
