Finite energy electroweak dyon
The latest MoEDAL experiment at LHC to detect the electroweak monopole makes the theoretical prediction of the monopole mass an urgent issue. We discuss three different ways to estimate the mass of the electroweak monopole. We first present the dimensional and scaling arguments which indicate the monopole mass to be around 4 to 10 TeV. To justify this we construct finite energy analytic dyon solutions which could be viewed as the regularized Cho–Maison dyon, modifying the coupling strength at short distance. Our result demonstrates that a genuine electroweak monopole whose mass scale is much smaller than the grand unification scale can exist, which can actually be detected at the present LHC.

N=2 super Yang-Mills theory in Projective Superspace
We find a formulation of N=2 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in Projective superspace.
In particular we find an expression for the field strength in terms of an unconstrained prepotential which is desirable when quantizing the theory.
We use this to write the action in terms of the prepotential and show that it reduces to the known result in the abelian limit.
