G 2-Monopoles with Singularities (Examples)
G 2-Monopoles are solutions to gauge theoretical equations on G 2-manifolds. If the G 2-manifolds under consideration are compact, then any irreducible G 2-monopole must have singularities. It is then important to understand which kind of singularities G 2-monopoles can have. We give examples (in the noncompact case) of non-Abelian monopoles with Dirac type singularities, and examples of monopoles whose singularities are not of that type. We also give an existence result for Abelian monopoles with Dirac type singularities on compact manifolds. This should be one of the building blocks in a gluing construction aimed at constructing non-Abelian ones.
