Strange solitons in a chiral quark-meson model

  • J Segar
  • M S Sri Ram


We consider aSU(3) quark soliton model based on chiral invariant quark-meson coupling. We find soliton solutions with nonzero strangeness andB=1 in the model with nontrivial kaonic fields, for values of the coupling constant greater than the phenomenologically acceptable number. Hence they do not correspond to known strange baryons.
