Non-Abelian strings and axions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Axion-like fields can have a strong impact on non-Abelian strings. I discuss axion connection to such strings and its implications in two cases: (i) axion localized on the strings, and (ii) axions propagating in the four-dimensional bulk.
