### Geometric construction of new Yang-Mills instantons over Taub-NUT space

Abstract:

In this paper we exhibit a one-parameter family of new Taub-NUT instantons parameterized by a half-line. The endpoint of the half-line will be the reducible Yang-Mills instanton corresponding to the Eguchi-Hanson-Gibbons L^2 harmonic 2-form, while at an inner point we recover the Pope-Yuille instanton constructed as a projection of the Levi-Civita connection onto the positive su(2) subalgebra of the Lie algebra so(4). Our method imitates the Jackiw-Nohl-Rebbi construction originally designe...
