Abstract:

Magnetic Monopoles are considered to be one of the most amazing aspects of

modern physics. Starting with Diracs famous 1931 paper on the possible

existence of Magnetic Monopoles as an extension of Maxwells equations in

the context of Quantum Mechanics, sophisticated experiments for the

detection of isolated magnetic charges have been designed and interesting

theoretical predictions, especially in the context of Grand Unifying

Theories have been made. This talk will give a short survey on the state

of research in theory and experiment and discuss a new type of analysis

for signatures of Magnetic Monopoles with imaging atmospheric Cherenkov

telescopes in the framework of the H.E.S.S. (High Energy Stereoscopic

System) experiment.
