We consider chaotic inflation in the theories with the effective potentials which at large φ behave either as φ or as e. In such theories inflationary domains containing sufficiently large and… (More)

We investigate the distribution of energy density in a stationary self-reproducing inflationary universe. We show that the main fraction of volume of the universe in a state with a given density ρ at… (More)

Susskind has recently shown that a relativistic string approaching the event horizon of a black hole spreads in both the transverse and longitudinal directions in the reference frame of an outside… (More)
