Abstract

Time evolution of strongly excited SU(2) Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield magnetic monopoles was investigated. The investigation was carried out using numerical simulations based on the technique of conformal compactification and on the use of the hyperboloidal initial value problem. It was observed that an initially static monopole does not radiate the entire energy of the exciting pulse towards future null infinity. However, it was suggested that a long-lasting quasistable breathing state develops in the central region and certain expanding shell structures were formed in the far away region.
