Topological Solitons in Discrete Space-Time as the Model of Fermions

A.I. Musienko
Pages: 219 - 224
In the present work we discuss arguments in favour of the view that massive fermions represent dislocations (i.e. topological solitons) in discrete space-time, with Burgers vectors parallel to the axis of time. If we assume that the symmetrical parts of tensors of distortions (i.e. derivatives of atomic...

Searching for CAC-maps

Jarmo Hietarinta
Pages: 223 - 230
For two-dimensional lattice equations the standard definition of integrability is that it should be possible to extend the map consistently to three dimensions, i.e., that it is "consistent around a cube" (CAC). Recently Adler, Bobenko and Suris conducted a search based on this principle, together with...

Lax Matrices for Yang-Baxter Maps

Yuri B. Suris, Alexander P. Veselov
Pages: 223 - 230
It is shown that for a certain class of Yang-Baxter maps (or set-theoretical solutions to the quantum Yang-Baxter equation) the Lax representation can be derived straight from the map itself. A similar phenomenon for 3D consistent equations on quagraphs has been recently discovered by A. Bobenko and...
