Abstract

Large scale coherence of a cosmological magnetic field, independently of its strength, is incompatible with any detectable monopole flux. Consequently, the controversial evidence1 of a coherent magnetic field up to a redshift z ≃ 2 infers the most severe cosmological bound on present number density (no) and fluxes (F) of magnetic monopoles: \( n_O < 2 \times 10^{ - 29} m_{16} H_{100}^2 cm^{ - 3} ;F < 2.77 \times 10^{ - 21} m_{16}^{ - 1} B_{ - g} H_{100}^{ - 1} cm^{ - 2} s^{ - 1}. \).
