Cosmic strings - relativistic vortices in the early universe
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mustapha Amrani.
Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences
In many models of the very early universe, a tangle of relativistic vortices – cosmic strings – are spontaneously formed at a phase transition. I will briefly review the models and observational constraints, compare and contrast cosmic strings with superconductor flux tubes and superfluid vortices, and describe the latest large-scale simulations of their formation and decay.
