Moduli space of periodic monopoles and Hitchin equations on a cylinder

Presented by:

Date: 
Tuesday 11th August 2015 - 14:00 to 15:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 2
Abstract: 
The Nahm transform relates periodic monopoles to periodic solutions of the Hitchin equations. I will identify the moduli in the 2-monopole case and construct the asymptotic metric. The symmetries of the system allow us to identify two geodesic submanifolds. I will describe their topology and the resulting monopole scattering through symmetric geodesics in the centre of the moduli space.
