Classical Physics


On the Existence of Magnetic Monopoles and the Invariance of Maxwell's Equations Under Time Reversal

Authors: Akash Kumar Saha

Maxwell's equations in Classical Electrodynamics do not contain any magnetic monopole. As a matter of fact there is no experimental evidence of the magnetic monopoles till now. But still the presence of magnetic monopoles explore a wonderful symmetry in Maxwell's Equations and modern theories like String Theory,Grand Unified Theory(GUT) agree with the presence of monopoles. Paul Dirac tried to introduce magnetic monopoles through the idea of 'Dirac String'.In this paper we will find that magnetic monopoles can be introduced without affecting the classical framework just by defining two auxiliary fields which behave just like electric(E)and magnetic(B) fields. Besides these auxiliary fields can also make Maxwell's Equations symmetric under time reversal.
