- Even though P. A. M. Dirac showed in 1931 that the existence of
magnetic monopoles could explain certain properties of electrically
charged particles, monopoles have never been detected. However, recent
gauge theories of elementary particles not only predict the existence
of monopoles but determine some of their properties.
