Solutions of the generic non-compact Weyl equation

  • Anastasia Doikou
  • Theodora Ioannidou


In this paper, solutions of the generic non-compact Weyl equation are obtained. In particular, by identifying a suitable similarity transformation and introducing a non-trivial change of variables we are able to implement azimuthal dependence on the solutions of the diagonal non-compact Weyl equation derived in [1]. We also discuss some open questions related to the construction of infinite BPS monopole configurations.
