    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The nondivergence of the self-force of a Nambu-Goto cosmic string to a corresponding hyper-string was discussed. It was assumed that due to some physical phenomena in the ultraviolet (UV) and the infrared (IR), the solutions were able to be regularized. A general formula for the linearized gravitational self-force in arbitrary codimension was derived. The links to self-tune the cosmological constant in 6D brane-world models were also elaborated.
