  • We give a unifying description of the Dirac monopole on the 2-sphere S2, of a graded monopole on a (2, 2)-supersphere S2, 2 and of the BPST instanton on the 4-sphere S4, by constructing a suitable global projector p via equivariant maps. This projector determines the projective modules of finite type of sections of the corresponding vector bundle. The canonical connection ∇ = p ◦ d is used to compute the topological charge which is found to be equal to -1 for the three cases. The transposed… CONTINUE READING
