# Radiation from global topological strings using adaptive mesh refinement: Massive modes

@article{Drew2022RadiationFG, title={Radiation from global topological strings using adaptive mesh refinement: Massive modes}, author={Amelia Drew and E. P. S. Shellard}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2022} }

We implement adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) simulations of global topological strings using the public code, GRChombo. We perform a quantitative investigation of massive radiation from single sinusoidally displaced string configurations, studying a range of string widths defined by the coupling parameter $\lambda$ over two orders of magnitude, effectively varying the mass of radiated particles $m_H \sim \sqrt{\lambda}$. We perform an in-depth investigation into the effects of AMR on massive…
