A spherically symmetric monopole solution is found in SO(5) gauge theory with Higgs scalar fields in the vector representation in six-dimensional Minkowski spacetime. The action of the Yang-Mills fields is quartic in field strengths. The solution saturates the Bogomolny bound and is stable.

Gravitating BPS monopoles in all d = 4p spacetime dimensions

We have constructed, numerically, both regular and black hole static solutions to the simplest possible gravitating Yang–Mills–Higgs (YMH) systems in 4p spacetime dimensions. The YMH systems consist

Finite Energy Monopoles in Non-Abelian Gauge Theories on Odd-dimensional Spaces

In higher-dimensional gauge theory, we need energies with higher power terms of field strength in order to realize pointwise monopoles. We consider new models with higher power terms of field

Gauge symmetry breaking in ten-dimensional Yang-Mills theory dynamically compactified on S 6

We study fluctuation modes in ten-dimensional Yang-Mills theory with a higher derivative term for the gauge field. We consider the ten-dimensional space-time to be a product of a four-dimensional

Classical solution in six-dimensional gauge theory with higher derivative coupling

We show that the spin connection of the standard metric on a six-dimensional sphere gives an exact solution to the generalized self-duality equations suggested by Tchrakian some years ago. We work on

Exact solutions of Einstein-Yang-Mills theory with higher-derivative coupling

We construct an exact classical solution of an Einstein-Yang-Mills system in ten space-time dimensions whose action contains a term quartic in Yang-Mills field strength. The solution provides

Five-dimensional monopole equation with hedgehog ansatz and Abel's differential equation

We consider the generalized monopole in the five-dimensional Euclidean space. A numerical solution with the hedgehog ansatz is studied. The Bogomol'nyi equation becomes a second-order autonomous

Dirac-Yang monopoles in all dimensions and their regular counterparts

The Dirac-Yang monopoles are singular Yang-Mills field configurations in all Euclidean dimensions. The regular counterpart of the Dirac monopole in D = 3 is the’ t Hooft-Polyakov monopole, the former

Generalized instantons on complex projective spaces

We study a class of generalized self-duality relations in gauge theories on the complex projective space with the Fubini–Study metric. Our theories consist of only gauge fields with gauge group U(n).

We study cosmology of the Einstein-Yang-Mills theory in ten dimensions with a quartic term in the Yang-Mills field strength. We obtain analytically a class of cosmological solutions in which the
