Hybrid bags and solitons

In the hybrid model the inner part of the Skyrmion is replaced by a bag with quarks. This procedure nicely illustrates the meaning of the topological quantum number. Also the role of NC and the way it enters in scaled quantities like e√NC, fπR/√NC, etc. is illustrated. Many problems, among them the nature of the subtractions and the quantization procedure, still require more study.
