Electromagnetic Asymmetry, Relegation of Curvature Singularities of Charged Black Holes, and Cosmological Equations of State in View of the Born--Infeld Theory
It is shown that, in a generic sense, and unlike what for electric point charges, the Born– Infeld nonlinear electrodynamics excludes monopoles as finite-energy magnetic point charges, thus spellingExpand

Creation of Dirac monopoles in spinor Bose-Einstein condensates.
TLDR
It is demonstrated theoretically that, by using external magnetic fields, one can imprint pointlike topological defects on the spin texture of a dilute Bose-Einstein condensate, providing an ideal analogue to the monopole studied by Dirac. Expand
Observation of Dirac monopoles in a synthetic magnetic field
TLDR
These real-space images provide conclusive and long-awaited experimental evidence of the existence of Dirac monopoles, and provides an unprecedented opportunity to observe and manipulate these quantum mechanical entities in a controlled environment. Expand
Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field
The steady progress of physics requires for its theoretical formulation a mathematics that gets continually more advanced. This is only natural and to be expected. What, however, was not expected byExpand
