The quantum properties of solitons at one loop can be related to phase shifts of waves on the soliton background. These can be combined with heat kernel methods to calculate various parameters. The vacuum energy of a CP(1) soliton in 2 + 1 dimensions is calculated as an example. (C) 1999 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
