However, one piece that would make the two perfectly symmetric was missing: magnetic monopoles.
If magnetic monopoles are finally detected, it would get rid of the current asymmetry between electricity and magnetism - something that bugs a lot of physicists - and prove, once and for all, that the two are truly analogous.
The D3-brane is both an electrically charged brane and a magnetic monopole, which separates it from the other branes.
Such experiments could yield clues as to how an actual magnetic monopole might reveal itself in nature.
In addition, in SS physics the definition of magnetic monopoles is accepted with the apparent contradictory condition of being [nabla] x B = 0, and some researches consider that the existence of these magnetic monopoles are coherent with the standard Maxwell equations, which can induce the question: what kind of magnetic monopole is it?
magnetic monopole A particle with a magnetic charge that is similar to an electric charge.
These nanostructures are arranged in a honeycomb lattice and when charged behave like magnetic monopoles.
Therefore, the physicist Blas Cabrera devised a setup that would produce an electric current if a magnetic monopole were to pass through it, and on February 14, 1982, it produced such a current.
It is the "mirror" symmetry character that provides standard Maxwell equations at very small deltron coupling (a magnetic source-free state) (6) while strong deltron coupling provides a magnetic monopole type of effect via [[?
Semilocal strings, however, can have ends, each of which is studded with a magnetic monopole.

The project's main goal is to find a magnetic monopole.
From the physical idea of mass, from the idea of the resultant vector (EV) as electric flux [not member of] and from the ideas relating to the magnetic monopole (MMP) it follows that the gravitational field is an electrical field.
