Periodic monopoles in string theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Periodic solutions of Bogomolny equation have novel Gravitational Instantons as their moduli spaces. String theory allows to identify these moduli spaces with moduli spaces of Hitchin systems as well as with Coulomb branches of Seiberg-Witten gauge theories on a space with one compact direction. We classify these Gravitational Instantons. We also perform Nahm transform of Periodic Monopoles establishing the correspondence with Hitchin systems predicted by String Theory.
