This is the user manual for CosmoLattice, a modern package for lattice simulations of the dynamics of interacting scalar and gauge fields in an expanding universe. CosmoLattice incorporates a series of features that makes it very versatile and powerful: $i)$ it is written in C++ fully exploiting the object oriented programming paradigm, with a modular structure and a clear separation between the physics and the technical details, $ii)$ it is MPI-based and uses a discrete Fourier transform…

Characterizing the post-inflationary reheating history, Part II: Multiple interacting daughter fields
We characterize the post-inflationary dynamics of an inflaton φ coupled to multiple interacting daughter fields Xn (n = 1, . . . Nd) through quadratic-quadratic interactions g2 nφ 2X2 n. We assume a
Scalar Dark Matter Production from Preheating and Structure Formation Constraints
We investigate the out-of-equilibrium production of scalar dark matter (DM) from the inflaton condensate during inflation and reheating. We assume that this scalar couples only to the inflaton via a
On gravitational preheating
We consider dark matter production during the inflaton oscillation epoch. It is conceivable that renormalizable interactions between dark matter and inflaton may be negligible. In this case, the
Detectable Gravitational Waves from (P)-reheating probes non-thermal Dark Matter
We show that the stochastic Gravitational Waves (GW) signal generated during the (p)reheating era can act as a novel probe of the non-thermal dark matter production in the early Universe. Such
Lattice simulations of Abelian gauge fields coupled to axions during inflation
The main result is reproducing with precision the growth of the gauge field on the lattice induced by the rolling of the axion on its potential, thus recovering the results of linear perturbation theory for this model.
Freeze-in from preheating
We consider the production of dark matter during the process of reheating after inflation. The relic density of dark matter from freeze-in depends on both the energy density and energy distribution
Dark matter production and reheating via direct inflaton couplings: collective effects
We study scalar dark matter production and reheating via renormalizable inflaton couplings, which include both quartic and trilinear interactions. These processes often depend crucially on collective
