Abstract: Chains of oscillators are of key importance in many mathematical and physical contexts, in particular in the theory of integrability. Indeed the very beginnings of the modern integrability were triggered by a study of such a chain by Fermi, Pasta and Ulam. Today, several classical and quantum integrable chains are known, and recently the area got a new push coming from the theory of integrable discretizations. We shall consider a new way of producing integrable chains of interacting (electrically charged) spherical pendula, each moving in a field of a magnetic monopole.
