## Classical Non-Abelian Solitons

• Recently renewed interest in solitons has arisen in connection with exceptional statistics occuring in low-dimensional quantum field theory. The nonperturbative approach to quantum solitons [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], based on the notion of a disorder variable [6, 7], does not make use of the well-known semiclassical quantisation procedure around classical soliton solutions [8]. In a recent article [9] the author introduced multicomponent scalar field models, treated nonperturbatively on a Euclidean space-time lattice. The exponentially decaying disorder correlation functions are connected with soliton fields showing nonAbelian braid group statistics. It is the aim of this note to present the corresponding classical soliton solutions, which do not seem to have appeared in the literature.
