Abstract: Based upon the Helmholtz decomposition theorem this paper shows that the field of a stationary magnetic monopole, assuming it exists, cannot be represented by a vector potential. Persisting to use vector potential in monopole representation violates fundamentals of mathematics. The importance of this finding is that the vector potential representation was crucial to the original prediction of the quantised value for a magnetic charge.
