Instantons Versus Monopoles

We review results of the last two years concerning caloron solutions of unit charge with non-trivial holonomy, revealing the constituent monopole nature of these instantons. For SU(n) there are n

Calorons and constituent monopoles

. We study anti-self-dual Yang–Mills instantons on R 3 × S 1 , also known as calorons, and their behaviour under collapse of the circle factor. In this limit, we make explicit the decomposition of

Chirality Carried by Monopoles

The lattice is classified by elementary 3-cubes associated to dual links which are occupied by monopoles or free of them. The quark condensate, the quark charge and the chiral density are computed on

Instantons, Monopoles and Toric HyperKähler Manifolds

Abstract:In this paper, the metric on the moduli space of the k=1 SU(n) periodic instanton – or caloron – with arbitrary gauge holonomy at spatial infinity is explicitly constructed. The metric is

A compact expression for periodic instantons

Dynamics of 3D SUSY gauge theories with antisymmetric matter

A bstractWe investigate the IR dynamics of N$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 SUSY gauge theories in 3D with antisymmetric matter. The presence of the antisymmetric fields leads to further splitting of the

Instanton contributions to the low-lying hadron mass spectrum

The role of instanton-like objects in the QCD vacuum on the mass spectrum of low-lying light hadrons is explored in lattice QCD. Using over-improved stout-link smearing, tuned to preserve

0 DFUB 2000-9 Bologna , May 2000 Magnetic Monopole Bibliography

We present a bibliography compilation on magnetic monopoles updated to include references till the end of year 1999. It is intended to contain nearly all the experimental papers on the subject and



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

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

Exact Classical Solution for the 't Hooft Monopole and the Julia-Zee Dyon

We present an exact solution to the nonlinear field equations which describe a classical excitation possessing magnetic and electric charge. This solution has finite energy and exhibits explicitly

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

QCD and instantons at finite temperature

The current understanding of the behavior of quantum chromodynamics at finite temperature is presented. Perturbative methods are used to explore the high-temperature dynamics. At sufficiently high

Thermodynamics of the Yang-Mills gas

The contribution of nonlinear fluctuations (instantons) to the thermodynamics of the Yang-Mills gas at high temperature is estimated.
