Monopoleantimonopole pairs of fixed angular momentum in superfluid /sup 3/HeA
We discuss the possibility of the formation in superfluid /sup 3/HeA of monopoleantimonopole pairs that carry angular momentum along the axis, especially in the context of situations characterized by a fixed value of the bulk angular momentum. Two rather different structures are considered, one which is likely to occur for large angular velocity (angular momentum), and another which could appear for low angular velocity (angular momentum). 
Monopoleantimonopole and vortex rings
The SU(2) YangMillsHiggs theory supports the existence of monopoles, antimonopoles, and vortex rings. In this paper, we would like to present new exact static antimonopolemonopoleantimonopole (AMA) configurations. The net magnetic charge of these configurations is always 1, while the net magnetic charge at the origin is always +1 for all positive integer values of the solution's parameter m. However, when m increases beyond 1, vortex rings appear coexisting with these AMA configurations. The number of vortex rings increases proportionally with the value of m. They are located in space where the Higgs field vanishes along rings. We also show thatmore » 
Monopoleantimonopole chains and vortex rings
We consider static axially symmetric solutions of SU(2) YangMillsHiggs theory. The simplest such solutions represent monopoles, multimonopoles and monopoleantimonopole pairs. In general such solutions are characterized by two integers, the winding number m of their polar angle, and the winding number n of their azimuthal angle. For solutions with n=1 and n=2, the Higgs field vanishes at m isolated points along the symmetry axis, which are associated with the locations of m monopoles and antimonopoles of charge n. These solutions represent chains of m monopoles and antimonopoles in static equilibrium. For larger values of n, totally different configurations arise, wheremore » 
Gravitating monopoleantimonopole chains and vortex rings
We construct monopoleantimonopole chain and vortex solutions in YangMillsHiggs theory coupled to Einstein gravity. The solutions are static, axially symmetric, and asymptotically flat. They are characterized by two integers (m,n) where m is related to the polar angle and n to the azimuthal angle. Solutions with n=1 and n=2 correspond to chains of m monopoles and antimonopoles. Here the Higgs field vanishes at m isolated points along the symmetry axis. Larger values of n give rise to vortex solutions, where the Higgs field vanishes on one or more rings, centered around the symmetry axis. When gravity is coupled to themore »
