An important application of spin dynamics is the response of a magnetic material subjected to an external stimuli. In the previous chapter we discussed the response of primarily ferromagnets to temperature fluctuations that manifest itself to spin excitations and magnons. In this chapter, we are concerned about magnetic materials with more complicated magnetic texture, such as spin spirals and topological magnetic structures, in particular magnetic skyrmions. Magnetic skyrmions has many appealing and intriguing features that make them interesting both for possible applications but also from a pure theoretical point of view.

Keywords:   Skyrmion, topology, winding number, topological charge, skyrmion lattice, topological protection, vortex
