Description

Standard solitons in two dimensions (one space, one time)- such as those in the sine-Gordon model - will be reviewed along with a selection of their properties. This leads on to a description of the role of the solitons within quantum field theory, especially their scattering and bound states. There are many questions concerning the generalisation to affine Toda field theory and some of these will also be described.
