We show that inflation which is dominated by the D-term density avoids the 'slow-roll' problem of inflation in supergravity. Such an inflationary scenario can naturally emerge in theories with(More)
We study the embedding of cosmic strings, related to the Abrikosov-Nielsen-Olesen vortex solution, into d = 4, N = 1 supergravity. We find that the local cosmic string solution which saturates the(More)
