The berry phase and the Yang monopole

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We start with a time-varying SO(5) symmetric matrix and use the Berry phase technique to calculate the vector potential of the Yang monopole which is a generalisation of the Dirac magnetic monopole concept. The calculations are done through simple and straightforward algebraic manipulations.
