Title: Studying critical string emerging from non-Abelian vortex in four dimensions

Recently a special vortex string was found in a class of soliton vortices supported in four-dimensional Yang–Mills theories that under certain conditions can become infinitely thin and can be interpreted as a critical ten-dimensional string. The appropriate bulk Yang–Mills theory has the U(2) gauge group and the Fayet–Iliopoulos term. It supports semilocal non-Abelian vortices with the world-sheet theory for orientational and size moduli described by the weighted CP(2,2) model. Here, the full target space is $$\mathbb R$$4 x Y6 where is a non-compact Calabi–Yau space.
