Using the path-ordered products of the relevant affine connection, the effect of the parallel transport of vectors and spinors around closed paths in the field corresponding to the cylindrically symmetric cosmic string is examined.Expand

The magnetic and electric self-forces are induced by the conical structure of a cosmic string space-time on a long straight wire which presents either a constant current or a linear charge density and are related by a Lorentz tranformation.Expand

We obtain the exact expression for the holonomy transformation, for a circle, that corresponds to the most general cylindrically symmetric metric. In a particular case that corresponds to solutions… Expand
