C. J. A. P. Martins, E. P. S. Shellard
2002 Physical Review D, Particles and fields  
We thus discuss the evolution of the basic large-scale features of cosmic string networks in all relevant cosmological scenarios, concentrating in particular on the 'scaling' solutions relevant for each  ...  In a companion paper, we show, by comparing with numerical simulations, that this model provides an accurate description of the large-scale features of cosmic string networks.  ...  This work was performed on COSMOS, the Origin2000 owned by the UK Computational Cosmology Consortium, supported by Silicon Graphics/Cray Research, HEFCE and PPARC.  ...

Statistical properties of strings

M. Hindmarsh, K. Strobl
1995 Nuclear Physics B  
We measure the percolation threshold, the critical exponent associated with the divergence of a suitably defined susceptibility of the string loops, and that associated with the divergence of the correlation  ...  We also investigate the Hagedorn transition, at which infinite strings percolate, controlling the string density by rendering one of the equilibrium states more probable.  ...  Scale invariance means that the string network looks the same on all scales in terms of statistical properties. In fact Brownian random walks are scale invariant.  ...

Topological Transitions from Multipartite Entanglement with Tensor Networks: A Procedure for Sharper and Faster Characterization

2014 Physical Review Letters  
sharp evidence of topological phase transitions in 2d systems with a string-tension perturbation.  ...  When compared to tensor network methods for R\'enyi entropies, our approach produces almost perfect accuracies close to criticality and, on top, is orders of magnitude faster.  ...  In Fig. 3 we show an example of the scalings with L for different values of n up to n ¼ 20 for two different string tensions g ¼ 0.4; 0.6 on the square lattice.  ...

Cosmic strings and other topological defects in nonscaling regimes

R. P. L. Azevedo, C. J. A. P. Martins
2017 Physical Review D  
Here we use the velocity-dependent one-scale model for the evolution of a string network to better quantify how these networks evolve.  ...  Attempts to estimate these numbers often rely on simplistic approximations for the string parameters, such as assuming that the network is scaling.  ...  Invariant and physical quantities Throughout the previous subsection, the characteristic length scale L was an invariant quantity or, in other words, a measure of the invariant string energy (and hence  ...

Universality and critical phenomena in string defect statistics

Karl Strobl, Mark Hindmarsh
1997 Physical review. E, Statistical physics, plasmas, fluids, and related interdisciplinary topics  
In this paper we measure the initial configurational statistics of a network of string defects after a symmetry-breaking phase transition with initial bias in the symmetry of the ground state.  ...  themselves naturally to a percolation theory description, and for cosmic strings, where the proportion of infinite strings can be varied or disappear entirely depending on the bias in the symmetry.  ...  Figure 18 shows that the assumption of scale invariance is consistent with our measurements for U(1) strings.  ...

Super-horizon cosmic string correlations

Arttu Rajantie
2009 Physical Review D  
When gauged cosmic strings form in a symmetry-breaking phase transition, the gauge field configuration at the time becomes imprinted in the spatial string distribution by the flux trapping mechanism.  ...  The potential observable effects of the correlations are discussed.  ...  This research was conducted in cooperation with SGI/Intel utilising the Altix 3700 supercomputer.  ...

On Measuring the Complexity of Networks: Kolmogorov Complexity versus Entropy

Mikołaj Morzy, Tomasz Kajdanowicz, Przemysław Kazienko
2017 Complexity  
One of the most popular methods of estimating the complexity of networks is to measure the entropy of network invariants, such as adjacency matrices or degree sequences.  ...  This measure is not affected by a particular choice of network features and it does not depend on the method of network representation.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Adrian Szymczak for helping to devise the degree sequence network.  ...

The evolution and persistence of dumbbells

Jon Urrestilla, Ana Achúcarro, Julian Borrill, Andrew R Liddle
2002 Journal of High Energy Physics  
We estimate the range of parameters where the network of dumbbells persists, and show that this region is narrower than the region within which infinite straight electroweak strings are perturbatively  ...  These exhibit complex dynamics, with some shrinking under the string tension and others growing due to the monopole-antimonopole attractions between near neighbours.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Mark Hindmarsh and Tanmay Vachaspati for useful discussions, and the referees for their comments.  ...
