Solitons and Their Arrays: from Quasi One-Dimensional Conductors to Stripes
We suggest a short review of literature on various solitonic lattices and individual solitons in quasi one-dimensional conductors. This information seems to be quite relevant to topics of stripes and their melted phases correspondingly. We shall quote also the latest experiments, which access solitons as elementary excitations in organic conductors and in charge density waves. We shall outline a theory for ordered phases, where solitons should acquire forms of combined topological configurations (kink-roton complexes). The extension of this picture to cuprates allows interpretation the latest STM observations on local rod-like structures.
