We exami~~e the angular momentum, gravitational radiation, number of kinks, and electromagnetic self-interaction for cosmic-string loops produced in a numerical simulation of loop fragmentation. The final distributions of both the string angular momenta and the power radiated in gravitational radiation appear to be independent of the initial conditions. The median specific angular momentum is , J / p l * =0.01. For gravitational radiation, y = ( d~ /dr )/G,u' is strongly peaked in the reglon y =40-60, with a …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
