This book introduces the main examples of topological solitons in classical field theories, discusses the forces between solitons, and surveys in detail both static and dynamic multi-soliton solutions. Kinks in one dimension, lumps and vortices in two dimensions, monopoles and Skyrmions in three dimensions, and instantons in four dimensions are all discussed.
