We construct spherically and axially symmetric monopoles in SU(5) Yang-Mills-Higgs theory both in flat and curved space as well as spherical and axial non-abelian, ''hairy'' black holes. We find that in analogy to the SU(2) case, the flat space monopoles are either non-interacting (in the BPS limit) or repelling. In curved space, however, gravity is able to overcome the repulsion for suitable choices of the Higgs coupling constants and the gravitational coupling. In addition, we confirm that…

Gravitating SU(N) monopoles from harmonic maps

Spherically symmetric solutions of the SU(N) Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs system are constructed using the harmonic map ansatz. This way the problem reduces to solving a set of ordinary differential

Gravitational magnetic monopoles and Majumdar-Papapetrou stars

During the 1990s a large amount of work was dedicated to studying general relativity coupled to non-Abelian Yang-Mills type theories. Several remarkable results were accomplished. In particular, it

SU(5) gravitating monopoles

Spherically symmetric and purely magnetic (i.e. A0 = 0) solutions of the full second-order SU(5) Einstein–Yang–Mills–Higgs equations are constructed using the harmonic map ansatz [1, 2]. In this way

Supercoductivity in extended gauge theories

Abstract.Extending the restricted quantum chromodynamics in SU(2) and SU(3) gauge theories by including quarks and gluons and also by reactivating the suppressed dynamical gauge degrees of freedom,

Gravitating Dyons and Dyonic Black Holes in SU(2) and SU(5) Theories

The study of gravitating dyons and dyonic black holes in SU(2) and SU(5) theories has been undertaken and it has been shown that gravitating fundamental dyonic solutions and dyonic black holes are

Scattering of axial gravitational wave pulses by monopole black holes and QNMs: a semianalytic approach

We study scattering of short Gaussian pulses of axial gravitational waves by a spherically symmetric black hole that has swallowed one or more global monopoles. We qualitatively show how the response

Low-momentum interactions for nuclei

We show how the renormalization group is used to construct a low-momentum nucleon-nucleon interaction V low k , which unifies all potential models used in nuclear structure calculations. V low k can

Chiral extrapolations of baryon masses for unquenched three flavor lattice simulations

We have analyzed the chiral expansion of the baryon masses to second order in the quark masses, including strong isospin violation. The calculations are performed in Lorentz-invariant baryon chiral

A recipe for EFT uncertainty quantification in nuclear physics

The application of effective field theory (EFT) methods to nuclear systems provides the opportunity to rigorously estimate the uncertainties originating in the nuclear Hamiltonian. Yet this is just

The bibliography compilation on magnetic monopoles is updated to include references from 2000 till mid 2011. It is intended to contain all experimental papers on the subject and only the theoretical



Axially symmetric monopoles and black holes in Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs theory

We investigate static axially symmetric monopole and black hole solutions with a magnetic charge $ng~1$ in Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs theory. For a vanishing and small Higgs self-coupling,

Magnetic monopoles in SU(4) gauge theories

All spherically symmetric magnetic poles are explictly constructed in SU(4). We show the relevance of the concept of the little group which transforms spherically symmetric solutions among

Black holes in magnetic monopoles.

It is shown that nonsingular monopole solutions exist only if the Higgs field vacuum expectation value v is less than or equal to a critical value v sub cr, which is of the order of the Planck mass.

Magnetic-monopole interactions

We study the long-range interactions between an arbitrary number of finite-energy monopoles in non-Abelian gauge theories with spontaneous symmetry breakdown. The Higgs fields may belong to either

Gravitationally bound monopoles.

It is shown that monopole solutions in SU(2) Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs theory carrying magnetic charge n are gravitationally bound and for vanishing and small Higgs self-coupling only a repulsive phase exists.
