Monopoles and Instantons; Classical Solutions to Quantum Mechanical Equations

  • Jean Nuyts


The subject of these lectures has, at the moment, very little relations with the problems of science and technology, energy, natural resources. It rather belongs to the frontiers of physics or even to some region behind the frontiers. However many important technological progresses have come from the seemingly too theoretical or too academic research. This may justify a continuous interest in basic progresses, both in theory and in experiment.
