    New automatic methods for enumerating permutation classes are introduced. The first is Struct, which is an algorithm that conjectures a structural description using rules similar to generalized grid classes. These conjectured structural descriptions ...

    We show that stable skyrmions with diameters of a few nanometers can emerge in atomic Pd/Fe bilayers on the Rh(111) surface. Based on density functional theory we calculate the exchange and the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction as well as the ...
