# Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory II: Study of an extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with a Dynamical Coupling

@article{LeonardoQuintanar2015CosmologyAQ, title={Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory II: Study of an extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with a Dynamical Coupling}, author={G. LeonardoQuintanar and Axel de la Macorra}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2015} }

We study the cosmological implications of the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL model) when the coupling constant is field dependent. The NJL model has a four-fermion interaction describing two different phases due to quantum interaction effects and determined by the strength of the coupling constant g. It describes massless fermions for weak coupling and a massive fermions and strong coupling, where a fermion condensate is formed. In the original NJL model the coupling constant g is indeed constant, and…

### Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory: A study of the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio Model

- Physics
- 2015

We review the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model (NJL), proposed long time ago, as a four-fermion interaction theory with chiral symmetry. The theory is not renormalizable and presents a symmetry breaking due…

### Quintessence Unification Models from Non-Abelian Gauge Dynamics

- Physics
- 2001

We show that the condensates of a non-abelian gauge group, unified with the standard model gauge groups, can parameterize the present day cosmological constant and play the role of quintessence. The…

### Gauged Nambu-Jona-Lasinio inflation

- Physics
- 2015

We investigate the gauged Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model in curved space-time at the large Nc$N_{c}$ limit and in slow-roll approximation. The model can be described by the renormalization group corrected…

### Interacting dark energy: generic cosmological evolution for two scalar fields

- Physics
- 2008

We study the cosmological evolution of two coupled scalar fields with an arbitrary interaction term VT(,) in the presence of a barotropic fluid, which can be matter or radiation. The force between…

### Cosmological evolution of general scalar fields and quintessence

- Mathematics
- 2000

We study the cosmological evolution of scalar fields with arbitrary potentials in the presence of a baryotropic fluid (matter or radiation) without making any assumption on which term dominates. We…

### Testable dark energy predictions from current data

- Physics

Given a class of dark energy models, constraints from one set of cosmic acceleration observables make predictions for other observables. Here we present the allowed ranges for the expansion rate…

### Quintessence, cosmic coincidence, and the cosmological constant

- Physics

Recent observations suggest that a large fraction of the energy density of the Universe has negative pressure. One explanation is vacuum energy density; another is quintessence in the form of a…
