J, Problem 6.18 Solution : a) We have A = g 4 π Z∞ dz ˆ z × ( r z ˆ z )  r z ˆ z  3 = g 4 π (ˆ z × ρ ) Z∞ dz 1 ( ρ 2 + ( z z ) 2 ) 3 / 2 = g 4 π ˆ ϕρ Z∞ dz 1 ( ρ 2 + ( z z ) 2 ) 3 / 2 = g 4 π ˆ ϕ ρ 1 z r = g 4 π ˆ ϕ r sin θ (1 cos θ ) The vector potential is well behaved for θ ∼ 0, but it shows singular behavior for θ ∼ π . This is near the negative zaxis where the Dirac string is located. b) Write A = f ( ρ, z )ˆ z × ρ . Then ∇ × A = ∂f ∂ρ ρ ˆ z + ∂f ∂z ( ρ ) + f 2ˆ z 2 f + ρ ∂f ∂ρ = g 4 π cos θ r 2 , ∂f ∂z = g 4 πr 3 ∇ × A = g 4 π ˆ z z r 3 + ρ r 3 = g 4 π r r 3 (1) This is the magnetic field of the monopole. Note that the singular behavior in A near the negative zaxis is absent in ∇ × A a little off the axis. c) For 0 < θ < π/ 2, Φ < = 2 π Z R sin θ ρdρ g 4 π R cos θ ( R 2 cos 2 θ + ρ 2 ) 3 / 2 = g 2 (1 cos θ ) = + g 2 g 2 cos θ For π/ 2 < θ < π , by symmetry the downward flux would be numerically the same, so the upward flux is numerically the negative: Φ > = g 2 (1 cos( π θ )) = g 2 g 2 cos θ (2) d) For any θ , I d l · A = 2 πR sin θ g 4 πR tan θ 2 = g 2 2 sin 2 θ = g 2 (1 cos θ ) = + g 2 g 2 cos θ This second calculation includes not only the flux from the monopole calculated in c),...
