Mostly Magnetic Monopoles

  • W. P. Trower
Conference paper
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 25/1983)

Abstract

In these lectures I will discuss the exerimental aspects of some of the particle physics which is being conducted out of the mainstream and, for the most part, independent of the programmatic research at the great accelerators. My principal topic will be the search for the magnetic monopole to which I will devote the first two lectures. What I will present will be more of a “trail guide” for the occasional hiker rather than an “atlas” for the geographer. I will emphasize the art of the hunt more than the theoretical ideas motivating it. I will also organize some of the speculations as to where monopoles might be found
