De Sitter string vacua from supersymmetric D-terms

- C. Burgess, R. Kallosh, F. Quevedo
- Physics
- 18 September 2003

We propose a new mechanism for obtaining de Sitter vacua in type-IIB string theory compactified on (orientifolded) Calabi-Yau manifolds similar to those recently studied by Kachru, Kallosh, Linde and… Expand

Optical properties of deep glacial ice at the South Pole

- M. Ackermann, J. Ahrens,
+114 authors K. Woschnagg - Environmental Science, Physics
- 16 July 2006

We have remotely mapped optical scattering and absorption in glacial ice at the South Pole for wavelengths between 313 and 560 nm and depths between 1100 and 2350 m. We used pulsed and continuous… Expand

Fibre inflation: observable gravity waves from IIB string compactifications

- M. Cicoli, C. Burgess, F. Quevedo
- Physics
- 5 August 2008

We introduce a simple string model of inflation, in which the inflaton field can take trans-Planckian values while driving a period of slow-roll inflation. This leads naturally to a realisation of… Expand

Towards a Naturally Small Cosmological Constant from Branes in 6D Supergravity

- Y. Aghababaie, C. Burgess, S. Parameswaran, F. Quevedo
- Physics
- 29 April 2003

Power-counting and the validity of the classical approximation during inflation

- C. Burgess, Hyun Min Lee, M. Trott
- Economics
- 25 February 2009

We use the power-counting formalism of effective field theory to study the size of loop corrections in theories of slow-roll inflation, with the aim of more precisely identifying the limits of… Expand

The Cosmological Constant Problem: Why it's hard to get Dark Energy from Micro-physics

- C. Burgess
- Physics
- 16 September 2013

These notes present a brief introduction to `naturalness' problems in cosmology, and to the Cosmological Constant Problem in particular. The main focus is the `old' cosmological constant problem,… Expand

The minimal model of nonbaryonic dark matter: A singlet scalar

- C. Burgess, M. Pospelov, T. Veldhuis
- Physics
- 28 November 2000

Quantum Gravity in Everyday Life: General Relativity as an Effective Field Theory

- C. Burgess
- PhysicsLiving reviews in relativity
- 24 November 2003

This article is meant as a summary and introduction to the ideas of effective field theory as applied to gravitational systems, ideas which provide the theoretical foundations for the modern use of… Expand

Testing general relativity with present and future astrophysical observations

- E. Berti, E. Barausse,
+50 authors M. Zilhão - Physics
- 28 January 2015

One century after its formulation, Einstein's general relativity (GR) has made remarkable predictions and turned out to be compatible with all experimental tests. Most of these tests probe the theory… Expand
