The curvaton reheating in a non-oscillatory inflationary universe model is studied in a Jordan–Brans–Dicke theory. For different scenarios, the temperature of reheating is computed. The result tells us that the reheating temperature becomes practically independent of the Jordan–Brans–Dicke parameter w. This reheating temperature turns out to be quite different when compared with that obtained from Einstein’s theory of gravity.

In a logamediate inflationary universe model, the curvaton field is introduced and the parameter space is given in this scenario to determine the reheating temperature.

Curvaton reheating allows a TeV Hubble scale in non-oscillatory inflation

Curvaton reheating is studied in non-oscillatory models of inflation, with the aim of obtaining bounds on the parameters of curvaton models and finding out whether low scale inflation can be

Curvaton reheating in non-minimal derivative coupling to gravity: NO models

The curvaton reheating mechanism in a non-minimal derivative coupling to gravity for any non-oscillating (NO) model is studied. In this framework, we analyze the energy density during the kinetic

Constraints from CMB in the intermediate Brans-Dicke inflation

We study an intermediate inflationary stage in a Jordan-Brans-Dicke theory. In this scenario we analyze the quantum fluctuations corresponding to adiabatic and isocurvature modes. Our model is

Tachyon-Chaplygin inflation on the brane

Tachyon-brane inflationary universe model in the context of a Chaplygin gas equation of state is studied. General conditions for this model to be realizable are discussed. In the high-energy limit

Intermediate inflation on the brane and warped DGP models

Brane and warped Dvali–Gabadadze–Porrati inflationary universe models in the context of intermediate inflation are studied. In both models we consider that the energy density is a standard scalar

Curvaton reheating mechanism in a scale invariant two measures theory

The curvaton reheating mechanism in a scale invariant two measures theory defined in terms of two independent non-Riemannian volume forms (alternative generally covariant integration measure

Topics in Cosmology—Clearly Explained by Means of Simple Examples

This is a very comprehensible review of some key issues in modern cosmology. Simple mathematical examples and analogies are used, whenever available. The starting point is the well-known Big Bang

Curvaton reheating: An application to braneworld inflation

The curvaton was introduced recently as a distinct inflationary mechanism for generating adiabatic density perturbations. Implicit in that scenario is that the curvaton offers a new mechanism for

The curvaton scenario in supersymmetric theories

We analyze the curvaton scenario in the context of supersymmety. Supersymmetric theories contain many scalars, and therefore many curvaton candidates. To obtain a scale invariant perturbation

The Curvaton hypothesis and the eta-problem of quintessential inflation, with and without branes

It is argued why, contrary to expectations, steep brane-inflation cannot really help in overcoming the η problem of quintessential inflation model building. In contrast it is shown that the problem

Aspects of Tachyonic inflation with exponential potential

We consider issues related to tachyonic inflation with an exponential potential. We find an exact solution of the evolution equations in the slow roll limit in FRW cosmology. We also carry out a

Primordial density perturbation in the curvaton scenario

We analyze the primordial density perturbation when it is generated by a “curvaton” field different from the inflaton. In some cases this perturbation may have large isocurvature components, fully

Inflationary attractor from tachyonic matter

We study the complete evolution of a flat and homogeneous universe dominated by tachyonic matter. We demonstrate the attractor behavior of tachyonic inflation using the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism. We

It is found that the resulting fluctuations are not of the isocurvature type, but that the entropy perturbation induces a curvature fluctuation which is larger than the entropic one before the wavelengths of the perturbations enter the Hubble radius.
