Dynamics of nonabelian Dirac monopoles

Abstract:

The topological definition of nonabelian magnetic charge is formulated using loop-spaced techniques. the dynamics of both classical and quantum monopoles are explored, and the equations of motion derived. A new Ũ-symmetry, having its origin in the topological definition of the charge is found to exist. A comparison of scattering processes for identical systems of charges vs monopoles is made with the hope of discovering a situation where the predictions of the conventional sour...
