We consider generalized self-duality equations for U(2r) Yang–Mills theory on ℝ4k with quaternionic structure and self-dual Moyal deformation. We employ the extended ADHM method in 4k dimensions to construct new noncommutative generalizations of the 't Hooft as well as of the BPST instantons. It is shown that in the commutative limit the BPST-type configurations coincide with the standard instantons on ℍPk written in local coordinates. 
Noncommutative deformation of instantons
We study instanton solutions on noncommutative Euclidean 4-space which are deformations of instanton solutions on commutative Euclidean 4-space. We show that the instanton numbers of theseExpand

Explicit Non-Abelian Monopoles in SU(N) Pure Yang-Mills Theory
It is well known that there are no static non-Abelian monopole solutions in pure Yang-Mills theory on Minkowski space R. We show that such solutions exist in SU(N) gauge theory on the spaces R2×S2Expand

Noncommutative Moduli for Multi-Instantons
There exists a recursive algorithm for constructing BPST-type multi-instantons on commutative ℝ4. When deformed noncommutatively, however, it becomes difficult to write down non-singular instantonExpand

The Octonionic Instanton
