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

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

Gluino zero-modes for non-trivial holonomy calorons

We couple fermion fields in the adjoint representation (gluinos) to the SU(2) gauge field of unit charge calorons defined on R 3 × S1. We compute corresponding zero- modes of the Dirac equation.

Multi-Calorons Revisited

Analytic Nahm data is re-examined for SU(2) calorons, or periodic instantons, of instanton charge 2. The Nahm equations are solved analytically in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions and the possible

Adjoint fermion zero-modes for SU(N) calorons

We derive analytic formulas for the zero-modes of the Dirac equation in the adjoint representation in the background field of Q = 1 SU(N) calorons. Solutions with various boundary conditions are

Determinant of the SU(N) caloron with nontrivial holonomy

The 1-loop quantum weight of the SU(N) Kraan-van Baal-Lee-Lu caloron with nontrivial holonomy is calculated. The caloron is the most general self-dual solution with unit topological charge in the 4d

SU(N) caloron measure and its relation to instantons

Calorons of the SU(N) gauge group with nontrivial holonomy, i.e. periodic instantons with arbitrary eigenvalues of the Polyakov line at spatial infinity, can be viewed as composed of N

1/4 BPS dyonic calorons

We explore the 1/4 BPS configurations of the supersymmetric gauge theories on $R^{1+3} \times S^1$. The BPS bound for energy and the BPS equations are obtained and the characteristics of the BPS



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

Morse Theory and Monopoles: Topology in Long Range Forces

Consider the t’Hooft-Polyakov monopole [1]. This is a static, finite energy solution to the evolution equations of a non-Abelian Higgs model with adjoint Higgs. For simplicity, take G = SU(2), but

Kac-Moody monopoles and periodic instantons

It is shown that calorons, or periodic instantons are the same as monopoles with the loop group as their structure group. Their twistor correspondences and spectral data are defined. The spectral

Dyons in N=4 supersymmetric theories and three-pronged strings

We construct and explore BPS states that preserve 1/4 of supersymmetry in N=4 Yang-Mills theories. Such states are also realized as three-pronged strings ending on D3-branes. We correct the electric

Monopoles and instantons on partially compactified D-branes

Motivated by the recent D-brane constructions of world-volume monopoles and instantons, we study the supersymmetric SU(N) Yang-Mills theory on S{sup 1}{times}R{sup 3+1}, spontaneously broken by a
