Leading log solution for inflationary Yukawa theory

- S. Miao, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 27 February 2006

We generalize Starobinskii's stochastic technique to the theory of a massless, minimally coupled scalar interacting with a massless fermion in a locally de Sitter geometry. The scalar is an 'active'… Expand

Noncommutative differential calculus for a D-brane in a nonconstant B field background with H=0

In this paper we try to construct noncommutative Yang-Mills theory for generic Poisson manifolds. It turns out that the noncommutative differential calculus defined in an old work is exactly what we… Expand

The graviton propagator in de Donder gauge on de Sitter background

- S. Miao, N. C. Tsamis, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 5 June 2011

We construct the graviton propagator on de Sitter background in exact de Donder gauge. We prove that it must break de Sitter invariance, just like the propagator of the massless, minimally coupled… Expand

Infrared propagator corrections for constant deceleration

- T. Janssen, S. Miao, T. Prokopec, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 18 August 2008

We derive the propagator for a massless, minimally coupled scalar on a D-dimensional, spatially flat, homogeneous and isotropic background with arbitrary constant deceleration parameter. Our… Expand

de Sitter breaking through infrared divergences

- S. Miao, N. C. Tsamis, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 22 February 2010

Just because the propagator of some field obeys a de Sitter invariant equation does not mean it possesses a de Sitter invariant solution. The classic example is the propagator of a massless,… Expand

Perils of analytic continuation

- S. Miao, P. J. Mora, N. C. Tsamis, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 23 June 2013

A nice paper by Morrison demonstrates the recent convergence of opinion that has taken place concerning the graviton propagator on de Sitter background. We here discuss the few points which remain… Expand

Invariant measure of the one-loop quantum gravitational backreaction on inflation

- S. Miao, N. C. Tsamis, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 19 February 2017

We use dimensional regularization in pure quantum gravity on de Sitter background to evaluate the one loop expectation value of an invariant operator which gives the local expansion rate. We show… Expand

Gravitons Enhance Fermions during Inflation

- S. Miao, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 31 March 2006

We solve the effective Dirac equation for massless fermions during inflation in the simplest gauge, including all one loop corrections from quantum gravity. At late times the result for a spatial… Expand

Breaking of scaling symmetry by massless scalar on de Sitter

- D. Glavan, S. Miao, T. Prokopec, R. Woodard
- Physics
- 29 August 2019

Abstract We study the response of a classical massless minimally coupled scalar to a static point scalar charge on de Sitter. By considering explicit solutions of the problem we conclude that – even… Expand

Graviton one-loop effective action and inflationary dynamics

- T. Janssen, S. Miao, T. Prokopec
- Physics
- 2 July 2008

We consider the one-loop effective action due to gravitons in a FLRW background with constant epsilon=-(dH/dt)/H^2. By expanding around epsilon=0 (corresponding to an expansion around de Sitter… Expand
