# Generalized monopoles in six-dimensional non-Abelian gauge theory

@article{Kihara2004GeneralizedMI, title={Generalized monopoles in six-dimensional non-Abelian gauge theory}, author={Hironobu Kihara and Yutaka Hosotani and Muneto Nitta}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004}, volume={71}, pages={041701} }

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.
