Electroweak skyrmions in the HEFT
Skyrmions are energetically stable static field configurations, initially proposed to describe baryons as topological solitons in an effective field theory of mesons. In this talk, we will see how they arise in the electroweak sector. We will also discuss how neural networks can be used for computing the skyrmion solutions and the shape of the energy functional. Finally, we will consider some phenomenological aspects of skyrmions: the collider signatures of their stabilizing operators, and their potential as Dark Matter candidates.
