Abstract: We perform a Monte Carlo study of the SU(3) non-Abelian Higgs model. We discuss phase structure and non-Abelian vortices by gauge-invariant operators. External magnetic fields induce non-Abelian vortices in the color–flavor-locked phase. The spatial distribution of non-Abelian vortices suggests the repulsive vortex–vortex interaction.
