Topological Solitons Seminar: Hyperbolic monopoles and symmetric instantons
26 February 2014 13:00 in CM219
Non-abelian monopoles in Euclidean space have been intensively studied since their discovery in the 70's, but explicit solutions are quite rare. This situation can be improved by moving to a hyperbolic space background, where one can exploit a connection to Euclidean instantons. I will discuss some new techniques based on this approach. The solutions include some examples with Platonic symmetry, as well as one-parameter families analogous to geodesics describing Euclidean monopole scattering.
