Blue primordial power spectra have spectral index n > 1 and arise naturally in the recently proposed hybrid inflationary scenario. An observational upper limit on n is derived by normalizing the spectrum at the quadrupole scale and considering the possible overproduction of Planck mass relics formed in the final stage of primordial black hole evaporation. In the inflationary Universe with the maximum reheating temperature compatible with the observed quadrupole anisotropy, the upper limit is n… CONTINUE READING
