Abstract

We investigate all spherically symmetric fundamental monopole solutions with fixed topological charge in the [Formula presented] symmetry breaking. We find that there are three solutions that are gauge equivalent but, as we argue, would correspond to physically distinct degrees of freedom in the dualized version of the model. The triplication of monopoles could help us understand the observed family structure of standard model particles.
