Distributional curvature of time-dependent cosmic strings

Preprint English OPEN
Wilson, J P;

Colombeau's theory of generalised functions is used to calculate the contributions, at the rotation axis, to the distributional curvature for a time-dependent radiating cosmic string, and hence the mass per unit length of the string source. This mass per unit length is ... View more
