ABSTRACT A spherically symmetric monopole solution is found in SO(5) gauge theory with
Higgs scalar fields in the vector representation in six-dimensional Minkowski
spacetime. The action of the Yang-Mills fields is quartic in field strengths.
The solution saturates the Bogomolny bound and is stable.

    ABSTRACT: We give an exact solution to the generalized self-duality equations suggested by Tchrakian on a six-dimensional twisted space-time and work on the gauge theory $\text{SO}(3,3)$ with a higher-derivative coupling term. The coupling term is considered as geometry as well as interaction dependent. The topological properties are also studied.

    ABSTRACT: We show that the spin connection of the standard metric on a six-dimensional sphere gives an exact solution to the generalized self-duality equations suggested by Tchrakian some years ago. We work on a SO(6) gauge theory with a higher-derivative coupling term. The model consists of vector fields only. The pseudoenergy is bounded from below by a topological charge, which is proportional to the winding number of spatial S5 around the internal space SO(6). The fifth homotopy group of SO(6) is, indeed, Z. The coupling constant of the higher derivative term is quadratic in the radius of the underlying space S6.
