We investigate the cosmological and astrophysical constraints on superconducting cosmic
strings (SCSs). SCS loops emit strong bursts of electromagnetic waves, which might
affect various cosmological and astrophysical observations. We take into account the
effect on the CMB anisotropy, CMB blackbody spectrum, BBN, observational implications
on radio wave burst and Xray or γray events, and stochastic gravitational wave background
measured by pulsar timing experiments. We then derive constraints on the parameters
of SCS from current observations and estimate prospects for detecting SCS signatures
in ongoing observations. As a result, we find that these constraints exclude broad
parameter regions, and also that ongoing radio wave observations can probe large
parameter space$$$$SubjectASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79)

An offshell generalization of the AbbottDeserTekin (ADT) conserved charge was recently
proposed by Kim et al. They achieved this by introducing offshell Noether currents
and potentials. In this paper, we construct the crucial offshell Noether current
by the variation of the Bianchi identity for the expression of EOM, with the help
of the property of Killing vector. Our Noether current, which contains an additional
term that is just one half of the Lie derivative of a surface term with respect to
the Killing vector, takes a different form in comparison with the one in their work.
Then we employ the generalized formulation to calculate the quasilocal conserved
charges for the most general charged spherically symmetric and the dyonic rotating
black holes with AdS asymptotics in fourdimensional conformal Weyl gravity, as well
as the charged spherically symmetric black holes in arbitrary dimensional EinsteinGaussBonnet
gravity coupled to Maxwell or nonlinear electrodynamics in AdS spacetime. Our results
confirm those obtained through other methods in the literature. (orig.)$$$$SubjectASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79)

We develop a cosmological model where primordial inflation is driven by a 'solid',
defined as a system of three derivatively coupled scalar fields obeying certain symmetries
and spontaneously breaking a certain subgroup of these. The symmetry breaking pattern
differs drastically from that of standard inflationary models: time translations are
unbroken. This prevents our model from fitting into the standard effective field theory
description of adiabatic perturbations, with crucial consequences for the dynamics
of cosmological perturbations. Most notably, nongaussianities in the curvature perturbations
are unusually large, with f_{NL} ∼ 1/(εc_{s}^{2}), and have
a novel shape: peaked in the squeezed limit, with anisotropic dependence on how the
limit is approached. Other unusual features include the absence of adiabatic fluctuation
modes during inflation — which does not impair their presence and near scaleinvariance
after inflation — and a slightly blue tilt for the tensor modes$$$$SubjectASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79)

We explore a cosmological model composed by a dark matter fluid interacting with a
dark energy fluid. The interaction term has the nonlinear λρ_{m}^{α}ρ_{e}^{β}
form, where ρ_{m} and ρ_{e} are the energy densities of the dark matter
and dark energy, respectively. The parameters α and β are in principle not constrained
to take any particular values, and were estimated from observations. We perform an
analytical study of the evolution equations, finding the fixed points and their stability
properties in order to characterize suitable physical regions in the phase space of
the dark matter and dark energy densities. The constants (λ,α,β) as well as w_{m}
and w_{e} of the EoS of dark matter and dark energy respectively, were estimated
using the cosmological observations of the type Ia supernovae and the Hubble expansion
rate H(z) data sets. We find that the best estimated values for the free parameters
of the model correspond to a warm dark matter interacting with a phantom dark energy
component, with a well goodnessoffit to data. However, using the Bayesian Information
Criterion (BIC) we find that this model is overcame by a warm dark matter – phantom
dark energy model without interaction, as well as by the ΛCDM model. We find also
a large dispersion on the best estimated values of the (λ,α,β) parameters, so even
if we are not able to set strong constraints on their values, given the goodnessoffit
to data of the model, we find that a large variety of theirs values are well compatible
with the observational data used$$$$SubjectASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79)

Cosmography provides a direct method to map the expansion history of the Universe
in a modelindependent way. Recently, different kinds of observations have been used
in cosmographic analyses, such as SNe Ia and gamma ray bursts measurements, weak and
strong lensing, cosmic microwave background anisotropies, etc. In this work we examine
the prospects for constraining cosmographic parameters from current and future measurements
of galaxy clusters distances based on their SunyaevZeldovich effect (SZE) and Xray
observations. By assuming the current observational error distribution, we perform
Monte Carlo simulations based on a wellbehaved parameterization for the deceleration
parameter to generate samples with different characteristics and study the improvement
on the determination of the cosmographic parameters from upcoming data. The influence
of galaxy clusters (GC) morphologies on the H_{0}−q_{0} plane is also
investigated$$$$SubjectASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79)

About half of heavy elements are considered to be produced by the rapid neutroncapture
process, rprocess. The neutron star merger is one of the viable candidates for the
astrophysical site of rprocess nucleosynthesis. Nuclear fission reactions play an
important role in the rprocess of neutron star mergers. However theoretical predictions
about fission properties of neutronrich nuclei have some uncertainties. Especially,
their fission fragment distributions are totally unknown and the phenomenologically
extrapolated distribution was often applied to nucleosynthesis calculations. In this
study, we have carried out rprocess nucleosynthesis calculations based upon new theoretical
estimates of fission fragment distributions. We discuss the effects on the rprocess
in neutron star mergers from the nuclear fission of heavy neutronrich actinide elements.
We also discuss how variations in the fission fragment distributions affect the abundance
pattern$$$$SubjectASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79), NUCLEAR PHYSICS AND RADIATION PHYSICS (S73)

We develop a new class of chaotic inflation models with spontaneously broken conformal
invariance. Observational consequences of a broad class of such models are stable
with respect to strong deformations of the scalar potential. This universality is
a critical phenomenon near the point of enhanced symmetry, SO(1,1), in case of conformal
inflation. It appears because of the exponential stretching of the moduli space and
the resulting exponential flattening of scalar potentials upon switching from the
Jordan frame to the Einstein frame in this class of models. This result resembles
stretching and flattening of inhomogeneities during inflationary expansion. It has
a simple interpretation in terms of velocity versus rapidity near the Kähler cone
in the moduli space, similar to the light cone of special theory of relativity. This
effect makes inflation possible even in the models with very steep potentials. We
describe conformal and superconformal versions of this cosmological attractor mechanism$$$$SubjectCLASSICAL AND QUANTUM MECHANICS, GENERAL PHYSICS (S71), ASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79)

We explore the possibility that ultrahigh energy neutrinos produced at cosmological
sources decay during their propagation. By solving a redshiftdependent decay equation,
we find important conceptual differences compared to more rudimentary treatments of
neutrino decay. Notably, we find that the maximum travel distance is bounded by the
Hubble length, so that the common notion that longer neutrino lifetimes can be probed
by using more distant sources is valid only for redshifts below ∝ 1. Using a sophisticated
calculation of the neutrino flux from gammaray bursts, we discuss the effects of
decay on the neutrino spectra and flavor ratios. If ν_{1} is stable, as implied
by the observation of SN 1987A, and if ν_{2} and ν_{3} have lifetimes
much shorter than their current bounds, then the expected ν_{μ} flux at PeV
energies, where IceCube is most sensitive, is reduced in approximately one order of
magnitude, while the ν_{e} flux is only slightly affected. This suggests that
it is possible that no muon tracks from gammaray burst neutrinos will be found in
the experiment, and that only cascade measurements will have to be used to reliably
study highenergy astrophysical neutrinos. As a result, the two cascade events recently
detected by IceCube at PeV energies might not be accompanied by muon tracks of comparable
energies.$$$$SubjectASTROPHYSICS, COSMOLOGY AND ASTRONOMY (S79), INSTRUMENTATION RELATED TO NUCLEAR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (S46)
