Magnetic Monopoles, Center Vortices and Topology of Gauge Fields

Preprint English OPEN
Reinhardt, H.; Engelhardt, M.; Langfeld, K.; Quandt, M.; Schafke, A.;

The topological properties of magnetic monopoles and center vortices arising, respectively, in Abelian and center gauges are studied in continuum Yang-Mills Theory. For this purpose the continuum analog of the maximum center gauge is constructed.
