We study the inflationary consequences of the rolling massive scalar field in the braneworld scenario with a warped metric. We find that in order to fit observational constraints the warp factor must be tuned to be < 10-3. We also demonstrate the inflationary attractor behavior of the massive scalar field dynamics both in the standard FRW case as well as in braneworld scenario.

Inflation from D3-brane motion in the background of D5-branes

We study inflation arising from the motion of a Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield D3-brane in the background of a stack of k parallel D5-branes. There are two scalar fields in this setup: (i) the radion

Instantons, assisted inflation, and heterotic M theory

We first investigate the attractor solution associated with assisted inflation in heterotic M theory to see if it is stable. By perturbing the solutions we find a solitary stable fixed point with the

A quintessentially geometric model

We consider string inspired cosmology on a solitary D3 brane moving in the background of a ring of branes located on a circle of radius R. The motion of the D3 brane transverse to the plane of the

Interaction between tachyon dark energy and modified Chaplygin gas

In the present work we assume that the universe is dominated with a two component mixture which do not evolve separately but interact non-gravitationally with one another. we consider the issue of

Dynamics of dark energy

We review in detail a number of approaches that have been adopted to try and explain the remarkable observation of our accelerating universe. In particular we discuss the arguments for and recent

On the evolution of tachyonic perturbations at super-Hubble scales

In the slow-roll inflationary scenario, the amplitude of the curvature perturbations approaches a constant value soon after the modes leave the Hubble radius. However, relatively recently, it was

Dark energy cosmology: the equivalent description via different theoretical models and cosmography tests

We review different dark energy cosmologies. In particular, we present the ΛCDM cosmology, Little Rip and Pseudo-Rip universes, the phantom and quintessence cosmologies with Type I, II, III and IV



Cosmology from a rolling massive scalar field on the anti-D3 brane of de Sitter vacua

We investigate a string-inspired scenario associated with a rolling massive scalar field on D-branes and discuss its cosmological implications. In particular, we discuss cosmological evolution of the

Lectures on string/brane cosmology

An overview of some cosmological aspects of string theory is presented. Recent developments are emphasized, especially the attempts to derive inflation or alternatives to inflation from the dynamics

Cosmological perturbations in a generalized gravity including tachyonic condensation

We present unified ways of handling the cosmological perturbations in a class of gravity theory covered by a general action. This gravity includes our previous generalized $f(\ensuremath{\varphi},R)$
