Abstract We present a mechanism through which a certain class of short-distance cutoff affects the CMB anisotropies at large angular scales. Our analysis is performed in two steps. The first is given in an intuitive way, using the property of the inflationary universe that quantum fluctuations of an inflaton field become classical after crossing the Hubble horizon. We give a condition for a cutoff to yield a damping on large scales, and show that the holographic cutoff introduced in the…

Hints of (trans-Planckian) asymptotic freedom in semiclassical cosmology
We employ the semiclassical approximation to the Wheeler?DeWitt equation in the spatially flat de?Sitter Universe to investigate the dynamics of a minimally coupled scalar field near the Planck
Planck scale inflationary spectra from quantum gravity
We derive the semiclassical evolution of massless minimally coupled scalar matter in the de Sitter space-time from the Born-Oppenheimer reduction of the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. We show that the
Cosmological constant probing shape moduli through large extra dimensions
We consider a compactification of extra dimensions and numerically calculate Casimir energy which is provided by the mass of Kaluza–Klein modes. For the extra space we consider a torus with shape
Noncommutative inflation and the large-scale damping in the CMB anisotropy
We show that a certain class of short-distance cutoff can give rise to large suppression on the CMB anisotropies at large angular scales.

We derive the semiclassical evolution of massless conformally coupled scalar matter in the de Sitter space-time from the Born-Oppenheimer reduction of the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. We find a
Born-Infeld black-body radiation
The problem of black-body radiation is considered in the Born-Infeld theory of electrodynamics. In particular, at 2-loop order the deviation from the Planck expression due to the self-interaction of
Black-body radiation of noncommutative gauge fields
The black-body radiation is considered in a theory with noncommutative electromagnetic fields; that is noncommutativity is introduced in field space, rather than in real space. A direct implication
Noncommutative black-body radiation: Implications on cosmic microwave background
Including loop corrections, black-body radiation in noncommutative space is anisotropic. A direct implication of possible space noncommutativity on the cosmic microwave background map is argued.

Suppressing the lower multipoles in the CMB anisotropies
The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) anisotropy power on the largest angular scales observed both by WMAP and COBE DMR appears to be lower than the one predicted by the standard model of cosmology
Inflation with a Planck scale frequency cutoff
The implementation of a Planck-scale high frequency and short wavelength cutoff in quantum theories on expanding backgrounds may have potentially nontrivial implications, such as the breaking of
Is there an imprint of Planck-scale physics on inflationary cosmology?
We study the effects of the trans-Planckian dispersion relation on the spectrum of the primordial density perturbations during inflation. In contrast to the earlier analyses, we do not assume any
Non-commutative inflation and the CMB
Abstract Non-commutative inflation is a modification of standard general relativity inflation which takes into account some effects of the space–time uncertainty principle motivated by ideas from
Trans-Planckian problem of inflationary cosmology
In most current models of inflation based on a weakly self-coupled scalar matter field minimally coupled to gravity, the period of inflation lasts so long that, at the beginning of the inflationary

We derive a general expression for the power spectra of scalar and tensor fluctuations generated during inflation given an arbitrary choice of boundary condition for the mode function at a short

Effects of space-time noncommutativity on the angular power spectrum of the CMB
Abstract We investigate an inflationary model of the universe based on the assumption that space–time is noncommutative in the very early universe. We analyze the effects of space–time
A Note on inflation and transPlanckian physics
In this paper we consider the influence of trans-Planckian physics on the CMBR anisotropies produced by inflation. We consider a simple toy model that allows for analytic calculations and argue on

We propose a new type of cosmological model in which it is postulated that not only the temperature but also the curvature is limited by the mass scale of the Hagedorn temperature. We find that the
