Nonabelian Monopoles Break Color
Grand unified theories1 (GUTs) are gauge theories based on a unifying group G which is spontaneously broken into a subgroup H. Such theories predict “magnetic” monopoles2 as topological excitations. These monopoles are generalizations of the abelian Dirac monopoles, in particular some of them are sources of long range nonabelian magnetic fields.
