• We examine the two-point correlation function of local maxima in temperature fluctuations at the last scattering surface when this stochastic field is modified by the additional fluctuations produced by straight cosmic strings via the Kaiser-Stebbins effect. We demonstrate that one can detect the imprint of cosmic strings with tension $G\mu \gtrsim 1.2 \times 10^{-8}$ on noiseless $1^\prime$ resolution cosmic microwave background (CMB) maps at 95% confidence interval. Including the effects of… CONTINUE READING
