  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
We investigate cosmological predictions on the early universe based on the noncommutative geometry models of gravity coupled to matter. Using the renormalization group analysis for the Standard Model with right handed neutrinos and Majorana mass terms, which is the particle physics content of the most recent noncommutative geometry models, we analyze the behavior of the coefficients of the gravitational and cosmological terms in the Lagrangian derived from the asymptotic expansion of the… 


This is an overview of new and ongoing research developments aimed at constructing cosmological models based on noncommutative geometry, via the spectral action functional, thought of as a modified

Cosmology within Noncommutative Spectral Geometry

Close to the Planck energy scale, the quantum nature of space-time reveals itself and all forces, including gravity, should be unified so that all interactions correspond to just one underlying

Constraints on noncommutative spectral action from Gravity Probe B and torsion balance experiments

Noncommutative spectral geometry offers a purely geometric explanation for the standard model of strong and electroweak interactions, including a geometric explanation for the origin of the Higgs

Noncommutative Fluid and Cosmological Perturbations

In the present paper we have developed a Non-Commutative (NC) generalization of perfect fluid model from first principles, in a Hamiltonian framework. The noncommutativity is introduced at the

Noncommutative spectral geometry offers a purely geometric explanation for the standard model of strong and electroweak interactions, including a geometric explanation for the origin of the Higgs

Inflation in models with conformally coupled scalar fields: An application to the noncommutative spectral action

Slow-roll inflation is studied in theories where the inflaton field is conformally coupled to the Ricci scalar. In particular, the case of Higgs field inflation in the context of the noncommutative

Coupling of gravity to matter, spectral action and cosmic topology

We consider a model of modified gravity based on the spectral action functional, for a cosmic topology given by a spherical space form, and the associated slow-roll inflation scenario. We consider

Spectral action and gravitational effects at the Planck scale

The Spectral Action and Cosmic Topology

The spectral action functional, considered as a model of gravity coupled to matter, provides, in its non-perturbative form, a slow-roll potential for inflation, whose form and corresponding slow-roll



Noncommutative geometry and the standard model with neutrino mixing

We show that allowing the metric dimension of a space to be independent of its KO-dimension and turning the finite noncommutative geometry F– whose product with classical 4-dimensional space-time

The Uncanny Precision of the Spectral Action

Noncommutative geometry has been slowly emerging as a new paradigm of geometry which starts from quantum mechanics. One of its key features is that the new geometry is spectral in agreement with the

Cosmology with Decaying Vacuum Energy

A broken-symmetry theory of gravity

Quantum effects at the beginning of the universe suggest the variability of the cosmical constant and the effective gravitational constant. These variations may be incorporated into the theory of

Primordial Black Holes as a Probe of the Early Universe and a Varying Gravitational Constant

We discuss recent developments in the study of primordial black holes, focussing particularly on their formation and quantum evaporation. Such studies can place important constraints on models of the

Gravity coupled with matter and the foundation of non-commutative geometry

We first exhibit in the commutative case the simple algebraic relations between the algebra of functions on a manifold and its infinitesimal length elementds. Its unitary representations correspond

Spontaneous breaking of conformal invariance in theories of conformally coupled matter and Weyl gravity

We study the theory of Weyl conformal gravity with matter degrees of freedom in a conformally invariant interaction. Specifically, we consider a triplet of scalar fields and SO(3) non-Abelian gauge
