Boosted Kaluza–Klein magnetic monopole

Nematollah Riazi, S. Sedigheh Hashemi
We consider a Kaluza–Klein vacuum solution which is closely related to the Gross–Perry–Sorkin (GPS) magnetic monopole. The solution can be obtained from the Euclidean Taub–NUT solution with an extra compact fifth spatial dimension within the formalism of Kaluza–Klein reduction. We study its physical properties as appearing in ( 3 + 1 ) spacetime dimensions, which turns out to be a static magnetic monopole. We then boost the GPS magnetic monopole along the extra dimension, and perform the Kaluza–Klein reduction. The resulting four-dimensional spacetime is a rotating stationary system, with both electric and magnetic fields. In fact, after the boost the magnetic monopole turns into a string connected to a dyon.
