Abstract:

We prove that the pullback of the $SU(n)$-soliton of Chern class $c_2=1$ over $\mathbb S^4$ via the radial projection $\pi:\mathbb B^5\backslash\{0\}\to \mathbb S^4$ minimizes the Yang-Mills energy under the fixed boundary trace constraint. In particular this shows that stationary Yang-Mills connections in high dimension can have singular sets of codimension $5$.
