# Melvin Magnetic Fluxtube/Cosmology Correspondence

@article{Kastor2015MelvinMF, title={Melvin Magnetic Fluxtube/Cosmology Correspondence}, author={David Kastor and Jennie Traschen}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2015} }

We explore a correspondence between Melvin magnetic fluxtubes and anisotropic cosmological solutions, which we call `Melvin cosmologies'. The correspondence via analytic continuation provides useful information in both directions. Solution generating techniques known on the fluxtube side can also be used for generating cosmological backgrounds. Melvin cosmologies interpolate between different limiting Kasner behaviors at early and late times. This has an analogue on the fluxtube side between…
