Abstract: Pulsar timing arrays are one of the powerful methods to search for the existence of cosmic strings through detection of gravitational waves. In this talk, I will present how pulsar timing arrays can be used to search for cosmic strings and what types of information we can obtain if we detect gravitational wave background from them. In addition, I will show that we can extract more information on properties of cosmic strings by analyzing anisotropies in the gravitational wave background.
