On the number of cosmic strings

Abstract:

The number of cosmic strings in the observable Universe is relevant in determining the probability of detecting such cosmic defects through their gravitational signatures. In particular, we refer to the observation of gravitational lensing events and anisotropy in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation induced by cosmic strings. In this article, a simple method is adopted to obtain an approximate estimate of the number of segments of cosmic strings crossing the particle horizon that ...
