I am reading this research paper authored by NS Manton on the Force between 't Hooft-Polyakov monopoles. I have a doubt in equation 3.6 and 3.7. We assume the gauge field for a slowly accelerating ...
I want to prove that the the scalar field of the yang-mills lagrangian tends to some constant value which is a function of theta at infinity and that this value is a zero of the potential, when we ...
I had asked a similar question about a calculation involving the winding number here. But i haven't got a satisfactory response. So, I am rephrasing this question in a slightly different manner. What ...
I am reading on magnetic monopoles from a variety of sources, eg. the Jeff Harvey lectures.. It talks about something called the winding $N$, which is used to calculate the magnetic flux. I searched ...
Today I read articles and texts about Dirac monopoles and I have been wondering about the insistence on gauge potentials. Why do they seem (or why are they) so important to create a theory about ...
