Distributional curvature of time dependent cosmic strings

Wilson, J.P. (1997) Distributional curvature of time dependent cosmic strings Classical and Quantum Gravity, 14, (12), pp. 3337-3351. (doi:10.1088/0264-9381/14/12/017).

Record type: Article


Colombeau's theory of generalized 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 compared with the mass at null infinity, giving evidence for a global energy conservation law.
