In this dissertation, I present the results from my recent

investigations into the interactions involving topological defects, such as

magnetic monopoles and strings, that may have been produced in the early

universe. I performed numerical studies on the interactions of twisted

monopole-antimonopole pairs in the 't Hooft-Polyakov model for a range of

values of the scalar to vector mass ratio. Sphaleron solution predicted by

Taubes was recovered, and I mapped out its energy and size as functions of
