Self-dual monopoles in a seven-dimensional gauge theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The existence of self-dual or anti-self-dual monopoles of a seven-dimensional generalized Yang-Mills-Higgs theory is proved using the second-order equations of motion. The behavior of solutions can be used to recognize self- or anti-self-duality. Moreover, it is shown that, in the class of the field configurations under discussion, the solutions are, in fact, unique.
