Continuum field theory of string-like objects. Dislocations and superconducting vortices

  • Dominik Rogula, Ekkehart Kröner
  • Published 2008


Dense distributions of string-like objects in material media are considered in terms of continuum field theory. The strings are assumed to carry a quantized abelian topological charge, such as the Burgers vector of dislocations in solids, or magnetic flux of supercurrent vortices in type-II superconductors. Within this common framework the facts known from… (More)
