The quantum mechanical generation of hypermagnetic and hyperlectric fields in four-dimensional conformally flat background geometries rests on the simultaneous continuity of the effective horizon and of the extrinsic curvature across the inflationary boundary. The junction conditions for the gauge fields are derived in general terms and corroborated by explicit examples with particular attention to the limit of a sudden (but nonetheless continuous) transition of the effective horizon.

Primordial magnetic fields from gravitationally coupled electrodynamics in nonsingular bounce cosmology
We in this paper study a class of mechanism of the production of the primordial magnetic field (PMF) in the non-singular bouncing cosmology, through the coupling of the electromagnetic field to

Inflationary magnetogenesis, derivative couplings, and relativistic Van der Waals interactions
When the gauge fields have derivative couplings to scalars, like in the case of the relativistic theory of Van der Waals (or Casimir-Polder) interactions, conformal invariance is broken but the
Inflationary susceptibilities, duality, and large-scale magnetic field generation
We investigate what can be said about the interaction of scalar fields with Abelian gauge fields during a quasi-de Sitter phase of expansion and under the assumption that the electric and the
Spectator Higgs field, large-scale gauge fields, and the nonminimal coupling to gravity
Even if the Higgs field does not affect the evolution of the background geometry, its massive inhomogeneities induce large-scale gauge fields whose energy density depends on the slow-roll parameters,
Generation of large-scale magnetic fields, non-Gaussianity, and primordial gravitational waves in inflationary cosmology
The generation of large-scale magnetic fields in inflationary cosmology is explored, in particular, in a kind of moduli inflation motivated by racetrack inflation in the context of the type IIB
Symmetries of inflationary magnetogenesis and the plasma initial conditions
As soon as the geometry expands quasi-exponentially the plasma sources are customarily tuned to zero as if the duration of the inflationary phase was immaterial for the gauge field fluctuations at
Electric-magnetic duality and the conditions of inflationary magnetogenesis
The magnetogenesis scenarios triggered by the early variation of the gauge coupling are critically analyzed. In the absence of sources, it is shown that the electric power spectra can be explicitly
Generation of Large-Scale Magnetic Fields in Single-Field Inflation
We consider the generation of large-scale magnetic fields in slow-roll inflation. The inflaton field is described in a supergravity framework where the conformal invariance of the electromagnetic
Hypermagnetic gyrotropy, inflation and the baryon asymmetry of the Universe
We investigate the production of the hypermagnetic gyrotropy when the electric and magnetic gauge couplings evolve at different rates, as it happens in the relativistic theory of the van der Waals
Inflationary dynamics of kinetically-coupled gauge fields
We investigate the inflationary dynamics of two kinetically-coupled massless $U(1)$ gauge fields with time-varying kinetic-term coefficients. Ensuring that the system does not have strongly coupled
