Spinning loop amplitudes in anti–de Sitter space

A differential operator is constructed that can act on a scalar factor in order to generate gluon and graviton loop integrands and systematizes the computation for any given loop level Witten diagram.

Symbol Recursion for the dS Wave Function

We present a recursive rule for the symbol of perturbative contributions to the vacuum wave function of a conformally coupled scalar in FRW cosmologies. The rule applies exactly for a class of

Resonant backreaction in axion inflation

Axion inflation entails a coupling of the inflaton field to gauge fields through the Chern-Simons term. This results in a strong gauge field production during inflation, which backreacts on the

Multipoint correlators in multifield cosmology

Connected $N$-point amplitudes in quantum field theory are enhanced by a factor of $N!$ in appropriate regimes of kinematics and couplings, but the non-perturbative analysis of this for collider

Back-reaction in massless de Sitter QFTs: holography, gravitational DBI action and f(R) gravity

We employ gauge-gravity duality to study the backreaction effect of 4-dimensional large-N quantum field theories on constant-curvature backgrounds, and in particular de Sitter space-time. The field

Scalar correlation functions for a double-well potential in de Sitter space

We use {the spectral representation of }the stochastic Starobinsky-Yokoyama approach to compute correlation functions in de Sitter space for a scalar field with a symmetric or asymmetric double-well

Markovian dynamics in de Sitter

The equilibrium state of fields in the causal wedge of a dS observer is thermal, though realistic observers have only partial access to the state. To them, out-of-equilibrium states of a light scalar

Spectator dark matter in nonstandard cosmologies

It has been shown that the observed dark matter (DM) abundance can be produced by amplification of quantum fluctuations of an energetically subdominant scalar field during inflation. In this paper,



Proper treatment of massless fields in Euclidean de Sitter space

We analyze infrared divergences arising in calculations involving light and massless fields in de Sitter space. We show that these arise from an incorrect treatment of the constant mode of the field,

Global structure of the inflationary universe

I describe the quantum creation of black holes in de Sitter space. A single topology change can lead to the formation of multiple black holes and the eventual disconnection of large spacelike

Decay of Vacuum Energy

Infrared instability of the de Sitter space

We continue to investigate various instabilities of the fixed backgrounds related to the de Sitter space. It is shown that in many cases the in/in perturbation theory contains IR/UV mixing and thus

Infrared Sensitivity of Unstable Vacua

Infrared correlations in de Sitter space: Field theoretic versus stochastic approach

We consider massive λ ϕ 4 theory in de Sitter background. The mass of the scalar field ϕ is chosen small enough, such that the amplification of superhorizon momentum modes leads to a significant

Infrared dynamics of the massive ϕ4 theory on de Sitter space

We study massive real scalar $\phi^4$ theory in the expanding Poincare patch of de Sitter space. We calculate the leading two-loop infrared contribution to the two-point function in this theory. We

Infrared dynamics of massive scalars from the complementary series in de Sitter space

We continue a previous study about the infrared loop effects in the $D$-dimensional de Sitter space for a real scalar ${\ensuremath{\phi}}^{4}$ theory from the complementary series whose bare mass

Quantum contributions to cosmological correlations

The 'in-in' formalism is reviewed and extended, and applied to the calculation of higher-order Gaussian and non-Gaussian correlations in cosmology. Previous calculations of these correlations

Scalar field correlator in de Sitter space at next-to-leading order in a 1 /N expansion

We study the dynamics of light quantum scalar fields in de Sitter space on superhorizon scales. We compute the self-energy of an O(N) symmetric theory at next-to-leading order in a 1/N expansion in
