Formation of High Redshift Objects in a Cosmic String Theory with Hot Dark MatterOct 26 1995Using a modification of the Zel'dovich approximation adapted to hot dark matter, the accretion of such matter onto moving cosmic string loops is studied. It is shown that a large number of $10^{12}M_\odot$ nonlinear objects will be produced by a redshift ... More
Continuous-spin mixed-symmetry fields in AdS(5)Nov 29 2017Apr 26 2018Free mixed-symmetry continuous-spin fields propagating in AdS(5) space and flat R(4,1) space are studied. In the framework of a light-cone gauge formulation of relativistic dynamics, we build simple actions for such fields. Realization of relativistic ... More
