Abstrakt:
Braam and Austin in 1990, proved that SU(2) magnetic monopoles in hyperbolic space H^3 are the same as solutions of the discrete Nahm equations. I apply equivariant K-theory to the ADHM construction of instantons/holomorphic bundles to get the (N-1)-interval discrete Nahm equations for the SU(N) case. During its evolution, the matrices of the (N-1)-interval discrete Nahm equations jump in dimensions and (at least to the author's knowledge) this behaviour has not been observed in discretisations of evolution equations before. A secondary result is that the monopole field at the boundary of H^3 determines the monopole.
