  • We examine the Standard Model field configurations near cosmic strings in a particular class of models. This class is defined by the condition that the generator of the flux in the string, $T_s$, commutes with the Standard Model Lie algebra. We find that if the Standard Model Higgs carries a charge $F_h /2$ under $T_s$, cosmic string solutions have Z-flux $\Phi_Z =[n-F_h N/F_{\phi}]4\pi \cos \theta_w /g$, where $n$ is any integer and $4\pi N/qF_{\phi}$ is the flux of the gauge field associated… CONTINUE READING
