# Asymptotic analysis of the monopole structure

@article{Kirkman1981AsymptoticAO, title={Asymptotic analysis of the monopole structure}, author={Thomas W. Kirkman and C. Zachos}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={1981}, volume={24}, pages={999-1004} }

We analyze the behavior of the magnetic-monopole equations as a function of the ratio of Higgs-scalar-to-vector-meson mass M/sub H//M/sub W/. For very small M/sub H//M/sub W/, we find that the mass of the monopole deviates from the Prasad-Sommerfield limit M/sub W//..cap alpha.. by M/sub H//2..cap alpha.., independently of the particular details of the symmetry-breaking potential. In the opposite limit M/sub H//M/sub W/..-->..infinity, the scalar field contributes negligibly to the mass, which… Expand
