Periodic instantons with non-trivial holonomy
Instantons on Gravitons
Yang-Mills instantons on ALE gravitational instantons were constructed by Kronheimer and Nakajima in terms of matrices satisfying algebraic equations. These were conveniently organized into a quiver.
Constituent monopoles without gauge fixing
Monopole constituents inside SU(n) calorons
Exact T-duality between calorons and Taub-NUT spaces
Periodic Euclidean Solutions and the Finite Temperature Yang-Mills Gas
We present explicit periodic solutions for SU(2) Euclidean gauge theory and briefly consider the contribution of the corresponding finite-temperature configurations to the partition function of the
Self-dual monopoles and calorons
The study of nonlinear partial differential equations remained outside the mainstream of mathematics, because their solution spaces seemed to be rather arbitrary and complicated. But physicists
SU(2) calorons and magnetic monopoles
We investigate the self-dual Yang-Mills gauge configurations on R{sup 3}{times}S{sup 1} when the gauge symmetry SU(2) is broken to U(1) by the Wilson loop. We construct the explicit field
