What does a dynamical magnetic monopole do?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A brief account on the results of a numerical investigation of highly excited 't Hooft- Polyakov magnetic monopoles in SU(2) gauge theory is provided here. The relevant numerical simulations were carried out based on the simultaneous use of the technique of conformal compactification and on that of the hyperboloidal initial value problem. It was found that an initially static monopole does not radiate the entire energy of the exciting pulse toward future null infinity. Rather, a long-lasting quasi-stable 'breathing state' develops in the central region and certain expanding shell structures - built up by very high frequency oscillations - are formed in the far away region.
