Item Open Access Complex monopoles I: The Haydys monopole equationNagy, Ákos; Oliveira, GonçaloWe study complexified Bogomolny monopoles using the complex linear extension of the Hodge star operator, these monopoles can be interpreted as solutions to the Bogomolny equation with a complex gauge group. Alternatively, these equations can be obtained from dimensional reduction of the Haydys instanton equations to 3 dimensions, thus we call them Haydys monopoles. We find that (under mild hypotheses) the smooth locus of the moduli space of finite energy Haydys monopoles on $\mathbb{R}^3$ is a hyperk\"ahler manifold in 3-different ways, which contains the ordinary Bogomolny moduli space as a complex Lagrangian submanifold---an (ABA)-brane---with respect to any of these structures. Moreover, using a gluing construction we find an open neighborhood of the normal bundle of this submanifold which is modeled on a neighborhood of the tangent bundle to the Bogomolny moduli space. This is analogous to the case of Higgs bundles over a Riemann surface, where the (co)tangent bundle of holomorphic bundles canonically embeds into the Hitchin moduli space. These results contrast immensely with the case of finite energy Kapustin--Witten monopoles for which we show a vanishing theorem in the second paper of this series [11]. Both papers in this series are self contained and can be read independently.Item Open Access Complex monopoles II: The Kapustin--Witten monopole equationNagy, Ákos; Oliveira, GonçaloWe study complexified Bogomolny monopoles in 3 dimensions by complexifying the compact structure groups. In this paper we use the conjugate linear extension of the Hodge star operator which yields a reduction of the Kapustin-Witten equations to 3 dimensions, thus we call its solutions Kapustin-Witten monopoles. Our main result is a vanishing theorem for these monopoles showing that the only finite energy Kapustin-Witten monopoles are the ordinary Bogomolny monopoles. We prove this by analyzing the asymptotic behavior of Kapustin-Witten monopoles, and combining our results with a recent theorem of Taubes.Item Open Access From vortices to instantons on the Euclidean Schwarzschild manifold(2018-01-18) Nagy, Ákos; Oliveira, GonçaloThe first irreducible solution of the $\SU (2)$ self-duality equations on the Euclidean Schwarzschild (ES) manifold was found by Charap and Duff in 1977, only 2 years later than the famous BPST instantons on $\rl^4$ were discovered. While soon after, in 1978, the ADHM construction gave a complete description of the moduli spaces of instantons on $\rl^4$, the case of the Euclidean Schwarzschild manifold has resisted many efforts for the past 40 years. By exploring a correspondence between the planar Abelian vortices and spherically symmetric instantons on ES, we obtain: a complete description of a connected component of the moduli space of unit energy $\SU (2)$ instantons; new examples of instantons with non-integer energy (and non-trivial holonomy at infinity); a complete classification of finite energy, spherically symmetric, $\SU (2)$ instantons. As opposed to the previously known solutions, the generic instanton coming from our construction is not invariant under the full isometry group, in particular not static. Hence disproving a conjecture of Tekin.
