Matheson, Andrew and Upton, David (1990) Monopole Accretion by Cosmic Strings. Modern Physics Letters A, 5 (17). pp. 1313-1320.
We study the accretion of super-heavy magnetic monopoles around cosmic string loops in the very early universe. For sufficiently massive monopoles, a possible result of this accretion process is the formation of monopole-black holes, leading ultimately to a monopole-to-photon ratio comparable to the limits required by neutron star observations.
