I am evaluating the cosmological distribution of type I and II vortices stemming from particle physics realistic theories, and then, determine whether or not these cosmic strings can be seen as the structureless Nambu-Goto objects they always taken to be. I am also studing configurations allowed by type I strings which are never considered in simulation in order to implement them in numerical network simulations. Alongside, we are writting a timely review article on surperconducting strings.
