Antivortex creation in a cross-shaped wire was demonstrated by using magnetoresistance and magnetic force microscopy measurements. The magnetization process was stochastic and exhibited a wide variety of magnetoresistance curves. By developing a conventional method, we have achieved electrical determination criteria to distinguish antivortex creation from many other magnetization states. The electrical criteria provide a simple method without large-scale apparatus and promote further experiments such as spin-current driven antivortex dynamics.
