1
CMB temperature bispectrum from a cosmic string network Keitaro Takahashi (Kumamoto U) Based on the collaboration with Yamauchi (U Tokyo), Sendouda (Hirosaki U), Yoo (Nagoya), Hiramatsu (Kyoto)

2
Line-like topological defects Formed in the early universe through the spontaneous symmetry breaking F-strings, D-strings, and their bound states which appear in string theory Formed though the brane collision at the end of the stringy inflation Cosmic strings Cosmic superstrings P=1P~10 -3 <<1 Intercommuting probability P

3
String gravity : conical structure The spacetime around a straight cosmic string is locally flat. An angular wedge of width Δ=8πGμ is removed from the space and the remaining edges identified.

4
String-induced integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect [Planck 25 (2013)] (δT/T)/Gμ Cosmic strings create line-like discontinuities in the CMB signal. Gott-Kaiser-Stebbins (GKS) effect [Kaiser+Stebbins(1984), Gott III(1985)]

CMB temp. power spectrum induced by a cosmic string network An analytic model including the probabilistic nature of the intercomuting process [Yamauchi, KT, et al. (2011)] [Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT), 2010] For ACT, For Planck satellite,

geodesic potential CMB lensing Deflection of CMB photons Unlensed CMB map [Hu+Okamoto(2002)] z=z CMB z=z L z=0 Lensed CMB map Lensing contribution

“αβ-type” lensing bispectrum The anisotropy is assumed to be decomposed into (α,β : contributions from each components) “αβ-type” “αβ-type” lensing bispectrum

Various types of CMB lensing : contributions from cosmic strings SP-type PP-type (standard) PS-type SS-type Standard density pert. Cosmic strings Standard density pert. “P” : primordial density perturbations, “S” : string contributions

Equilateral-shaped bispectra induced by a cosmic string network Silk damping At small scale, the standard ISW-L (PP-type) and SP-type bispectra are damped due to the Silk damping, and only the (GKS) 3, PS-type bispectra are relevant. (Gμ,P) (10 -7,1) (10 -8,10 -3 ) (10 -9,10 -6 ) [Yamauchi, KT, et al., in prep.] SS-type ∝ C l Θsφs C l ΘsΘs ∝ (Gμ) 4 (GKS) 3 ∝ (Gμ) 3 Preliminary SP-type ∝ C l Θsφs C l ΘpΘp ∝ (Gμ) 2 PS-type ∝ C l Θpφp C l ΘsΘs ∝ (Gμ) 2

Cumulative signal-to-noise ratio (GKS) 3 ∝ (Gμ) 3 SS-type ∝ (Gμ) 4 PS-type ∝ (Gμ) 2 SP-type ∝ (Gμ) 2 PA : Planck+ACTPol–like noise, P : Planck-like noise [Yamauchi, KT, et al., in prep.] Preliminary

11
Constraint in Gμ-P plane ((S/N) <5000 =1) For small P, the PS-type GKS-L bispectrum ∝ C l Θpφp C l ΘsΘs ∝ (Gμ) 2 gives the tighter constraint on Gμ than the (GKS) 3 bispectrum ∝ (Gμ) 3. (GKS) 3 PS-type ∝ C l Θpφp C l ΘsΘs SP-type ∝ C l Θsφs C l ΘpΘp [Yamauchi, KT, et al., in prep.] Preliminary SS-type ∝ C l Θsφs C l ΘsΘs

12
Summary We study the effect of weak lensing by cosmic strings on the anisotropies of cosmic microwave background. In developing a method to evaluate the lensing contribution due to strings, we calculate the analytic expression for the various-type, namely αβ-type, lensing bispectra. For smaller tension, the lensing bispectrum have window to constrain the string parameters even tighter than the bispectrum induced by GKS.
