Abstract

The mass spectrum of spontaneously compactified Einstein-Yang-Mills theories is computed using the Wu-Yang monopole harmonic functions. It is found that spontaneous compactification can be used to provide the correct mass scale generating the superstrong symmetry breaking which, in grand unified theories, separates quarks from leptons.
