String networks with junctions: evolution and kinks

Date: 
Tuesday 4th December 2012 - 11:30 to 11:50
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Topological evolution in gauge theories and cosmology
Session Chair: 
Tanmay Vachaspati
Abstract: 
I will discuss a number of properties of string networks with junctions, focusing particularly on their evolution and the number of kinks in such networks. These properties are crucial in order to determine the observational consequences of networks with junctions, for instance in Gravitational Waves and CMB polarization.
