Constraints on cosmic superstring formation and their decay mechanism

Tuesday 4th December 2012 - 11:50 to 12:10
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Topological evolution in gauge theories and cosmology
Session Chair: 
Tanmay Vachaspati
I will discuss some aspects of cosmic superstrings, related to their formation, nature, evolution and decay mechanisms. In particular, I will discuss the successful and theoretically consistent brane inflation models leading to cosmic superstrings, the dynamics of junctions and the channels of decay mechanisms of cosmic superstrings, which are very important for cosmological/observational consequences.
