Title

Topological Defects in the Solid State

Abstract

Yttrium Manganite (YMnO3) naturally forms interesting patterns in its domains which form one-dimensional topological defects in the solid. By use of symmetries of the crystal, it is possible to understand why these domain patterns form and predict similar patterns that might form in other materials.
