Analytical solutions to backreaction on cosmic strings

Wachter, Jeremy.


  • Abstract: We present analytical studies of gravitational and electromagnetic backreaction on cosmic strings. For oscillating loops of cosmic string, we present a general argument for how kinks must change; additionally, we apply this general argument to the geometrically simple case of the Garfinkle-Vachaspati loop. Our results suggest that the formation of cusps on loops is delayed, and so we sho... read more
