Can Magnetic Monopoles and Massive Photons Coexist in the Framework of the Same Classical Theory?
Abstract
It is well known that one cannot construct a selfconsistent quantum field theory describing the nonrelativistic electromagnetic interaction mediated by massive photons between a pointlike electric charge and a magnetic monopole. We show that, indeed, this inconsistency arises in the classical theory itself. No semiclassic approximation or limiting procedure for the Dirac constant approaching to zero is used. As a result, the string attached to the monopole emerges as visible also if finiterange electromagnetic interactions are considered in classical framework.
