As shown by Taubes, in the Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield limit the SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs model possesses smooth finite energy solutions, which do not satisfy the first order Bogomol'nyi equations. We construct numerically such a non-Bogomol'nyi solution, corresponding to a monopole-antimonopole pair, and extend the construction to a finite Higgs potential.

Monopole-Antimonopole Solutions of the Skyrmed SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs Model
Axially symmetric monopole–antimonopole dipole solutions to the second-order equations of a simple SU(2) Yang–Mills–Higgs model featuring a quartic Skyrme-like term are constructed numerically. The
Exact Solutions of the SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs Theory
Some exact static solutions of the SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs theory are presented. These solutions satisfy the first order Bogomol'nyi equations, and possess infinite energies. They are axially
Axially symmetric Yang-Mills-Higgs solutions in AdS spacetime
We consider axially symmetric solutions of SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs theory in globally AdS spacetime and a fixed Schwarzschild-AdS black hole background. The solutions are characterized by two integers
Cho Abelian decomposition of monopole-antimonopole pair gauge potentials
Recently we have reported on standard MAP and generalized Jacobi Elliptic monopole-antimonopole pair (MAP) solutions of the SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs model. Here we apply Cho Abelian decomposition to

We present a new classical generalized one-monopole solution of the SU(2) Yang–Mills–Higgs theory with the Higgs field in the adjoint representation. We show that this generalized solution with
Dyon in the SU(2) Yang–Mills theory with a gauge-invariant gluon mass toward quark confinement
In the previous paper, we have shown the existence of magnetic monopoles in the pure SU (2) Yang–Mills theory with a gauge-invariant mass term for the gluon field being introduced. In this paper, we
Deformed vortices in (4+1)-dimensional Einstein-Yang-Mills theory
We study vortex-type solutions in a (4+1)-dimensional Einstein-Yang-Mills-SU(2) model. Assuming all fields to be independent on the extra coordinate, these solutions correspond in a four-dimensional

We discuss static axially symmetric solutions of SU(2) Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs theory. These regular asymptotically flat solutions represent monopole-antimonopole chain and vortex ring solutions,
