The curious case of a “simple” monopole in a “complex” space

These mythical entities of quantum field physics, which have resisted being detected for decades, seem, at least in theory, to get simpler when they are described in complex spaces.





Monopoles in non-Abelian gauge invariance theories are one of the most prominent configurations in Yang-Mills-Higgs field theories.


They have been extensively analysed since the 70’s because of close connections with the problem of confinement of quarks and gluons (which is one of the greatest open questions in the field of high energy physics).
