The present research project uses techniques from integrable field theories and soliton theory to study non-linear phenomena and non-perturbative aspects of field theories of physical interest. It consists of three main topics: i) the study of global aspects of non-abelian gauge theories (Yang-Mills) using their integral equations, and their connection with integrable field theories, ii) applications of the concept of self-duality to soliton solutions for field theories of physical interest, iii) the construction, through numerical techniques, of Skyrmion solutions for a modified Skyrme model, recently proposed, that possesses an exact self-dual sector.
