  • SU(N) monopoles and Platonic symmetry 

    HOUGHTON, CONOR JAMES (American Institute of Physics, 1997)
    We discuss the ADHMN construction for SU(N) monopoles and show that a particular simplification arises in studying charge N?1 monopoles with minimal symmetry breaking. Using this we construct families of tetrahedrally ...
  • Tetrahedral and cubic monopoles 

    HOUGHTON, CONOR JAMES (Springer Science + Business Media, 1996)
    Using a numerical implementation of the ADHMN construction, we compute the fields and energy densities of a charge three monopole with tetrahedral symmetry and a charge four monopole with octahedral symmetry. We then ...
  • Timescales in songbird auditory processing. 

    HOUGHTON, CONOR JAMES (2006)
  • Tuning for criticality: A new hypothesis for sleep 

    HOUGHTON, CONOR JAMES (MIT, 2009)
    We propose that the critical function of sleep is to prevent uncontrolled neuronal feedback while allowing rapid responses and prolonged retention of short-term memories. Through learning, the brain is tuned to react ...
  • A zero-mode quantization of the Skyrmion 

    HOUGHTON, CONOR JAMES (Elsevier, 2006)
    In the semi-classical approach to the Skyrme model, nuclei are approximated by quantum mechanical states on a finite-dimensional space of field configurations; in zero-mode quantization this space is generated by rotations ...
