Abstract / Description of output

We classify all possible charge-3 monopole spectral curves with non-trivial automorphism group and within these identify those with elliptic quotients. By focussing on elliptic quotients the transcendental constraints for a monopole spectral curve become ones regarding periods of elliptic functions. We construct the Nahm data and new monopole spectral curves with D6 and V4 symmetry, the latter based on an integrable complexification of Euler's equations, and for which energy density isosurfaces are plotted. Extensions of our approach to higher charge and hyperbolic monopoles are discussed.
