Reheating and Cosmic Superstring Production

Abstract

We compute the string production rate in the end of inflation using the string spectrum in a near de Sitter space obtained in hep-th/0701258. Our result shows that string production can not be ignored in general, and in many situations dominates the decay of inflaton. It can be seen in our calculation that a typical string created has a size of the Hubble… (More)
