In supersymmetric theories, topological defects can have nontrivial behaviors determined purely by whether or not supersymmetry is restored in the defect core. A well-known example of this is that some supersymmetric cosmic strings are automatically superconducting, leading to important cosmological effects and constraints. From the vantagepoint of the four-dimensional topological theory, these defects are surface operators. Specific intersection points of these defects lead to Yukawa couplings. A distinctive signature of this structure formation scenario would be a slight blue tilt of the spectrum of gravitational waves. This book is a product of a month.

Topological defect structure and dynamics in 3D active nematics. Nematic liquid crystals, which are fluids with orientational order, may contain topological defects called . So do point particles, which can be represented as conical "defects" in space. With a negative cosmological constant, (2+1)-dimensional general relativity even admits black hole solutions, which behave almost like ordinary (3+1)-dimensional black holes.

This can generate structure formation at redshifts z greater than or approx 10 on mass scales as large as M approx 10 to the 18th solar masses.

Besides the formation of structure in the universe, topological defects may be relevant for the baryon number asymmetry of the universe.

We give a summary of the cosmic string and global texture models, focusing on distinct observational signatures in large-scale structure surveys and in the microwave background. Abstract. It is shown that the potential galaxy formation and large-scale structure problems of (1) objects existing at high redshifts (Z ⋧ 5), (2) structures existing on scales of Mpc as well as velocity flows on such scales, and (3) minimal microwave anisotropies \(\frac{{\Delta T}}{T} \lesssim {10^{ - 5}} \) can be solved if the seeds needed to generate structure form in a vacuum Cited by: 7.

The standard model involves particle symmetry and the mechanism of its breaking. Modern cosmology is based on inflationary models with baryosynthesis and dark matter/energy, which involves physics beyond the standard model. Studies of the physical basis of modern cosmology combine direct searches for new physics at accelerators with its indirect non-accelerator probes, in which cosmological Cited by: 9.

The Big Bang theory is a cosmological model of the observable universe from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution.

The model describes how the universe expanded from an initial state of very high density and high temperature, and offers a comprehensive explanation for a broad range of observed phenomena, including the abundance of light elements, the cosmic. We also consider the cosmological implications of well motivated physical models of the early universe with a particular emphasis on inflation and topological defects.

The vast majority of these subhalos are likely devoid of stars, but a tiny minority are expected to host the luminous dwarf galaxies observed around the Milky Way. This book is devoted to time-resolved optically stimulated luminescence and is suitable for researchers with an interest in the study of point-defects using luminescence methods.

The book first sets the method within the context of the luminescence field at large and then provides an .This course covers the physical fundamentals of material science with an in-depth discussion of structure formation in soft and hard materials and how structure determines material mechanical, electrical, thermal, and optical properties.

Topics include amorphous and crystal structures, defects, dislocation theory, thermodynamics and phase. This book accompanies another book by the same authors, Introduction to the Theory of the Early Universe: Hot Big Bang Theory and presents the theory of the evolution of density perturbations and relic gravity waves, theory of cosmological inflation and post-inflationary reheating.

Written in a pedagogical style, the main chapters give a detailed account of the established theory, with Brand: World Scientific Publishing Company.
