Cosmic Attractors and Gauge Hierarchy

Abstract

We suggest a new cosmological scenario which naturally guarantees the smallness of scalar masses and VEVs, without invoking supersymmetry or any other (nongravitationaly coupled) new physics at low energies. In our framework, the scalar masses undergo discrete jumps due to nucleation of closed branes during (eternal) inflation. The crucial point is that the… (More)
