10 TEV monopoles and topology of the Standard Model

Presenter: Mikhail Zubkov — ITEP


It is shown that unification of strong and Electroweak interactions at Tev scale may lead to appearance of topologically stable monopoles with masses of the order of 10 Tev. In particlular, in the realistic Petite Unification Theory (PUT) such objects appear as a result of the breakdown SU(4)⊗ SU(2)3SU(3) SU(2) U(1)/Z3. Those monopoles may play an important role in the early Universe, at finite temperature. They may even be condensed at high enough temperature. The lattice model for investigation of this phenomenon is presented.
