    ADHM Construction of Noncommutative Instantons

    Full text link
    We discuss the Atiyah-Drinfeld-Hitchin-Manin (ADHM) construction of U(N) instantons in noncommutative (NC) space and prove the one-to-one correspondence between moduli spaces of the noncommutative instantons and the ADHM data, together with an origin of the instanton number for U(1). We also give a derivation of the ADHM construction from the viewpoint of the Nahm transformation of instantons on four-tori. This article is a composite version of [23] and [24].Comment: 23pages, 3 figures, LaTeX; A composite version of proceedings of the 20th International Colloquium on Integrable Systems and Quantum Symmetries (ISQS20), 17-23 June 2012, Prague, Czech Republic and the 10th International Conference on Symmetries and Integrability of Difference Equations (SIDE10), 11-15 June 2012, Ningbo, Chin

    On Exact Noncommutative BPS Solitons

    We construct new exact BPS solitons in various noncommutative gauge theories by the ``gauge'' transformation of known BPS solitons. This ``gauge'' transformation introduced by Harvey, Kraus and Larsen adds localized solitons to the known soliton. These solitons include, for example, the bound state of a noncommutative Abelian monopole and N fluxons at threshold. This corresponds, in superstring theories, to a D-string which attaches to a D3-brane and N D-strings which pierce the D3-brane, where all D-strings are parallel to each other.Comment: 18 pages, LaTeX, 2 figures; v3: minor changes, comments added, references added; v4: version to appear in JHE

    Bäcklund transformations for noncommutative anti-self-dual Yang-Mills equations

    Get PDF
    We present Bäcklund transformations for the non-commutative anti-self-dual Yang–Mills equations where the gauge group is G = GL(2) and use it to generate a series of exact solutions from a simple seed solution. The solutions generated by this approach are represented in terms of quasi-determinants and belong to a non-commutative version of the Atiyah–Ward ansatz. In the commutative limit, our results coincide with those by Corrigan, Fairlie, Yates and Goddard
