Abstract

We prove the existence and uniqueness of a static and radially symmetric BPS monopole of unit topological charge in an arbitrary (4p - 1)-dimensional space descended from the generalized Yang-Mills theory in 4p dimensions and formulated and presented in a recent study of Radu and Tchrakian. This monopole solution also gives rise to an electrically and magnetically charged soliton, called dyon, in the same spacetime setting through the well-known Julia-Zee correspondence. Our method is based on a dynamical shooting approach depending on two shooting parameters which provides an effective framework for constructing the BPS monopole and dyon solutions in general dimensions.
