Cosmic Strings and Other Topological Defects PDF

E-P-S Shellard

Now in paperback, this book is the first comprehensive and coherent introduction to the role of cosmic strings and other topological defects in the universe. This study has been one of the major driving forces in cosmology over the last decade, and lies at the fruitful intersection of particle physics and cosmology. After an introduction to standard cosmological theory and the theory of phase transitions in the early universe, the book then describes, in turn, the properties, formation and cosmological implications of cosmic strings, monopoles, domain walls and textures. The book concludes with a chapter considering the role of topological defects in inflationary universe models.Ample introductory material is included to make the book accessible to the wide audience of particle physicists, astrophysicists and cosmologists, for whom this topic is of immediate interest.This paperback edition also contains an extensive new preface summarising recent developments in the field.

e ects can also be caused by other types of cosmic defects, no-tably semi-local strings and global textures. As well as influenc-ing the CMB power spectrum, each type of topological defect should have a counterpart non-Gaussian signature giving us the ability distinguish between di erent defects, alternative scenar-ios, or systematic e ects Planck 2013 results.

Cosmic Strings and Topological Defects Cosmic strings are characterized by non-trivial fundamental group of the manifold, M(ˇ 1(M) 6= I), which is an analog of the topological defect of two dimensional vortex. The manifold, Mis not contractible which means the singularity corresponding to a hole cannot be removed by continuous deformation. There are other topological defects in the curved spacetime such as monopoles, domain walls
