In mathematics, a monopole is a connection over a principal bundle G with a section of the associated adjoint bundle.

Physical interpretation[edit]

Physically, the section can be interpreted as a Higgs field, where the connection and Higgs field should[why?] satisfy the Bogomolny equations and be of finite action.
