Chiral cosmic strings in supergravity
We consider F and D-term cosmic strings formed in supersymmetric theories. Supersymmetry is broken inside the string core, but restored outside. In global SUSY, this implies the existence of
Bosonic condensates in realistic supersymmetric GUT cosmic strings
We study the realistic structure of F-term Nambu-Goto cosmic strings forming in a general supersymmetric Grand Unified Theory implementation, assuming standard hybrid inflation. Examining the
Supersymmetric k-defects
Nielsen-Olesen strings in Supersymmetric models
We investigate the behaviour of a model with two oppositely charged scalar fields. In the Bogomol'nyi limit this may be seen as the scalar sector of N = 1 supersymmetric QED, and it has been shown
Bosonic structure of realistic SO(10) supersymmetric cosmic strings
We study the bosonic structure of F-term Nambu-Goto cosmic strings forming in a realistic SO(10) implementation, assuming standard hybrid inflation. We describe the supersymmetric grand unified
Supersymmetric Cosmic Strings
We study the formation of cosmic strings in the context of spontaneous symmetry breaking of gauge symmetry groups. We discuss the conditions for formation and stability of defects in
0 D ec 2 01 5 Supersymmetric k-defects
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
Bosonic structure of realistic SO(10) SUSY cosmic strings
We study the bosonic structure of F -term Nambu-Goto cosmic strings forming in a realistic SO(10) implementation, assuming standard hybrid inflation. We describe the supersymmetric grand unified

Cosmic vortons and particle physics constraints.
TLDR
These constraints significantly restrict the category of admissible Grand Unified theories, but are quite compatible with recently proposed effects whereby superconducting strings may have been formed close to the electroweak phase transition.
Gravitino zero modes on $U(1)_R$ strings
We consider theories with a spontaneously broken {ital gauged} R symmetry, which can only occur in supergravity models. These give rise to cosmic R strings upon which gravitino zero modes can exist.
Topology of cosmic domains and strings
The possible domain structures which can arise in the universe in a spontaneously broken gauge theory are studied. It is shown that the formation of domain wall, strings or monopoles depends on the
Large-scale structure from wiggly cosmic strings.
TLDR
It is argued that the motion of strings will lead to the generation of a primordial magnetic field and the efficient formation of large-scale structure and large streaming velocities in the Universe without significantly affecting the microwave-background isotropy.
