    added publication data for this:

    • Samuel Lomonaco, The modern legacies of Thomson’s atomic vortex theory in classical electrodynamics, in: Louis Kauffman (ed.) The Interface of Knots and Physics, Proceedings of Symposia in Applied Mathematics Volume 51 (1996) (pdf, doi:10.1090/psapm/051)

    Added pointer to

    • Filipp N. Rybakov, Julien Garaud, Egor Babaev, Kelvin knots in superconducting state, Phys. Rev. B 100, 094515 (2019) (arXiv:1807.02509)

    Also added cross-link to the entry Skyrmion. I thought I had had a comment here that Skyrmions effectively realize the idea of “votex atoms”, but apparently I didn’t. Maybe later…

    Ah, found this:

    According to Ranada-Trueba 01, p. 200:

    Skyrme had studied with attention Kelvin’s ideas on vortex atoms.

    If anyone else has something on Skyrme channeling Kelvin, I’d be grateful for a pointer.
