In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Induced vacuum bosonic current in a cosmic string spacetime
Aula Conversi (LNF)
Via Enrico Fermi, 40

Cosmic strings are linear gravitational stable topological defects which may have been created as a consequence of phase transitions in the early universe. The formation of cosmic strings can have astrophysical and cosmological consequences. The geometry of the spacetime associated with an idealized cosmic string, i.e. infinitely long and straight, is locally flat except on the string. In quantum field theory, the corresponding nontrivial topology induces non-zero vacuum expectation values (VEVs) for physical observables. In this talk, we analyze the bosonic current densities induced by a magnetic flux running along an idealized cosmic string, admitting that the coordinate along the string’s axis is compactified. Additionally, we admit the presence of a magneti flux enclosed by the compactification axis. In order to develop this analysis, we calculate the complete set of normalized bosonic wave functions obeying a quasiperiodicity condition along the compactified dimension. In this context, only azimuthal and axial currents densities take place.
