Quantitative studies of the evolution and cosmological consequences of networks of cosmic strings (or other topological defects) require a combination of numerical simulations and analytic modeling with the velocity-dependent one-scale (VOS) model. In previous work, we demonstrated that a GPU-accelerated code for local Abelian-Higgs string networks enables a statistical separation... Show more
