We present a specific model for cosmological inflation driven by the Liouville field in a non-critical supersymmetric string framework, in which the departure from criticality is due to open strings stretched between two moving Type-II 5-branes. We use WMAP and other data on fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background to fix the parameters of the model, such as the relative separation and velocity of the 5-branes, respecting also the constraints imposed by data on light propagation from… 

RELAXATION DARK ENERGY IN NON-CRITICAL STRING COSMOLOGIES AND ASTROPHYSICAL DATA

In this talk we review briefly the basic features of non-critical (dissipative) String Cosmologies, and we confront some of these models with supernova data. We pay particular attention to the

Dilaton and off-shell (non-critical string) effects in Boltzmann equation for species abundances

In this work we derive the modifications to the Boltzmann equation governing the cosmic evolution of relic abundances induced by dilaton dissipative-source and non-critical-string terms in

Liouville Cosmology at Zero and Finite Temperatures

We discuss cosmology in the context of Liouville strings, characterized by a central-charge deficit Q2, in which target time is identified with (the worldsheet zero mode of the) Liouville field:

Beyond the Standard Model of Cosmology

Recent cosmological observations of unprecented accuracy, by WMAP in particular, have established a ‘Standard Model’ of cosmology, just as LEP established the Standard Model of particle physics. Both

Supercriticality of a class of critical string cosmological solutions

For a class of Friedmann-Robertson-Walker-type string solutions with compact hyperbolic spatial slices formulated in the critical dimension, we find the world-sheet conformal field theory which

Non-perturbative formulation of non-critical string models

We apply to non-critical bosonic Liouville string models, characterized by a central-charge deficit Q, a new non-perturbative renormalization-group technique based on a functional method for

Starobinsky-like inflation and running vacuum in the context of Supergravity

We describe the primeval inflationary phase of the early Universe within a quantum field theoretical (QFT) framework that can be viewed as the effective action of vacuum decay in the early times.

An Alternative to Exact Renormalization and Cosmological Solutions in String Theory

In this work we review the application of a functional method, serving as an alternative to the Wilsonian Exact Renormalization approach, to stringy bosonic $\sigma$-models with metric and dilaton

A novel non-perturbative approach to String Cosmology

We develop an exact functional method applied to the bosonic string on a shperical world sheet, in graviton and dilaton backgrounds, consistent with conformal invariance. In this method, quantum

A STRING SCENARIO FOR INFLATIONARY COSMOLOGY

We describe a scenario for inflation in the framework of noncritical string theory, which does not employ an inflaton field. There is an exponential expansion of the volume of the Universe, induced

A Liouville String Approach to Microscopic Time and Cosmology

In the non-critical string framework that we have proposed recently, the time t is identified with a dynamical local renormalization group scale, the Liouville mode, and behaves as a statistical

CLOSING THE UNIVERSE BY RELAXING THE COSMOLOGICAL CONSTANT

We consider a string-inspired no-scale SU(5) × U(1) supergravity model. In this model there is a negative contribution to the vacuum energy, which may be suitably canceled by a positive contribution

COSMOLOGICAL EVOLUTION IN A TYPE-0 STRING THEORY

We study the cosmological evolution of a type-0 string theory by employing non-criticality, which may be induced by fluctuations of the D3 brane worlds. We check the consistency of the approach to in

SUPER HEAVY DARK MATTER ANISOTROPIES FROM D-PARTICLES IN THE EARLY UNIVERSE

We discuss a way of producing anisotropies in the spectrum of superheavy dark matter, which are due to the distortion of the inflationary space–time induced by the recoil of D-particles upon their

String theory and an accelerating universe

An accelerating Universe can be accommodated naturally within non-critical string theory, in which scattering is described by a superscattering matrix $ that does not factorize as a product of S -a

The Ekpyrotic universe: Colliding branes and the origin of the hot big bang

We propose a cosmological scenario in which the hot big bang universe is produced by the collision of a brane in the bulk space with a bounding orbifold plane, beginning from an otherwise cold,

D Branes from Liouville Strings

We develop quantization aspects of our Liouville approach to noncritical strings, proposing a path-integral formulation of a second quantization of string theory, that incorporates naturally the
