Charged spherical shell in the field of an Abelian monopole



The gravitational field of a charged spherical shell in the presence of a central Abelian monopole is calculated. The nonlinearity in the field is represented by Born-Infeld Lagrangian that contains both invariants of the electromagnetic field. Such a configuration models a gravitationally bound shell of matter and charge that may provide a source of gamma-ray bursts now being found in extragalatic radiation.
