Abstract

We construct spherically and axially symmetric monopoles in SU(5) YangMills-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 indeed all qualitative features of (gravitating) SU(2) monopoles are found as well in the SU(5) case. For the non-abelian black holes, we compare the behaviour of the solutions in the BPS limit with that for non-vanishing Higgs self-coupling constants.
