Definition issues. I think the subject is too narrowly defined. After all, topological defects arise in many other context than cosmology, That's why I put "In cosmology," at the top, to suggest that this wasn't the only context in which topological defects were relevant.

Topological defects formed at symmetry-breaking phase transitions play an important role in many different fields of physics. They appear in many condensed-matter systems at low temperature; examples include vortices in superfluid helium-4, a rich variety of defects in helium-3, quantized mag netic flux tubes in type-II superconductors, and disclination lines and other defects in.

Abstract. Topological defects are involved in a plethora of physical and astrophysical phenomena. In these lectures, I will review the role they could play in the large-scale structure formation and the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background, as well as in various high energy phenomena, including baryon number asymmetry, ultra-high energy cosmic rays, and gamma Author: Mairi Sakellariadou.

PHYSICAL FOUNDATIONS OF COSMOLOGY Inﬂationary cosmology has been developed over the last 20 years to remedy serious shortcomings in the standard hot big bang model of the an original approach, this textbook explains the basis of modern cosmology and shows where the theoretical results come from.

Part 3 describes extensions of this model and opens up current research in the field: scalar-tensor theories, supersymmetry, the cosmological constant problem and acceleration of the universe, topology of the universe, grand unification and baryogenesis, topological defects and phase transitions, string inspired cosmology including branes and.

Topological defects are ubiquitous in physics. Whenever a symmetry breaking phase transition occurs, topological defects may form. The best known examples are vortex lines in type II super conductors or in liquid helium, and declination lines in liquid crystals (Mermin, ; Chuang et Cited by: 2.

DEFECTS IN THE UNIVERSE. Generically topological defects will be produced if the conditions for their existence are met. Then for example if the unbroken group H contains a disconnected part, like an explicit U(1) factor (something that is quite common in many phase transition schemes discussed in the literature), monopoles will be left as relics of the transition.

In this paper, we point out that topological. Cosmic Topology is the name given to the study of the overall shape of the universe, which involves both global topological features and more local geometrical properties such as curvature. Whether space is finite or infinite, simply-connected or multi-connected like a torus, smaller or greater than the portion of the universe that we can directly observe, are.

Topological defects are the subject of intensive studies in many different branches of physics ranging from cosmology to liquid crystals and from elementary particles to colloids and biological systems.

This book sheds new light on topological defects in widely differing systems, using the Velocity-Dependent One-Scale Model to better understand their evolution.

Topological defects - cosmic strings, monopoles, domain walls or others - necessarily form at cosmological (and condensed matter) phase transitions. Finally, the book considers some general issues raised by expansion and isotropy. A reference section completes the work by listing essential formulae, symbols, and physical constants.

Beyond the level of many elementary books on cosmology, An Introduction to the Science of Cosmology encompasses numerous recent developments and ideas in the : Derek Raine. Cosmology. Certain grand unified theories predict topological defects to have formed in the early ing to the Big Bang theory, the universe cooled from an initial hot, dense state triggering a series of phase transitions much like what happens in condensed-matter systems.

In physical cosmology, a topological defect is an (often) stable configuration of matter predicted.
