We present new bounds on the cosmic abundance of magnetic monopoles based on the survival of primordial magnetic fields during the reheating and radiation-dominated epochs.
The primordial magnetic fields accelerate the monopoles and the process of monopole acceleration extracts energy from the fields. The energy that the monopoles extract from the primordial magnetic field is consequently transferred to the primordial plasma through scattering processes with relativistic charged particles of the plasma. With a monopole number density large enough, this can cause the disappearance of the field.
The new bounds can be stronger than the conventional Parker bound from galactic magnetic fields, as well as bounds from direct searches. We also apply our bounds to monopoles produced by the primordial magnetic fields themselves through the Schwinger effect, and derive additional conditions for the survival of the primordial fields.
