Conference paper
Part of the Springer Series in Nonlinear Dynamics book series (SSNONLINEAR)


Finite energy solitary wave solutions obtained by Polyakov and Belavin for the isotropic 2-dimensional ferromagnet are briefly reviewed. The ideas of Bogomolnyi connecting the winding number and potential energy of the system play an important role in the discussion.
