Magnetic Monopoles - Theoretical and Mathematical Physics (Hardback)Shnir Yakov (author)
- We can order this
Surveys the monopole problem on a few different levels, from classical electrodynamics up to N=2 SUSY Yang-Mills theory. and presents a compact, `bird's eye view' on the entire set of problems related with very notion of monopole including actual stand of the problem, related historical remarks and comprehensive bibliography.
Presents original results obtained by the author in collaboration with other researches are presented as well as it summarizes the present status of the theory of monopoles and provides an introduction to the field.

From the reviews of the first edition:
"The modern era of the monopolic theory started in 1974 when Hooft and, independently, Polyakov found monopole solutions in quantum field theory ... . This ... is the subject of the carefully designed book by Shnir. It is written mainly for researchers and advanced students in theoretical physics and is to my knowledge the first coherent presentation of the subject." (Gert Roepstorff, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1084, 2006)
