We consider the conditions needed to unify the description of dark matter, dark energy, and inflation in the context of the string landscape. We find that incomplete decay of the inflaton field gives the possibility that a single field is responsible for all three phenomena. By contrast, unifying dark matter and dark energy into a single field, separate from the inflaton, appears rather difficult. 

Unifying dark matter, dark energy and inflation with a fuzzy dark fluid

Scalar fields appear in many cosmological models, in particular in order to provide explanations for dark energy and inflation, but also to emulate dark matter. In this paper, we show that it is

Triple unification of inflation, dark energy, and dark matter in two-scalar-field cosmology

A unified description of inflation, dark energy, and dark matter is presented within a two-scalar-field cosmological model. Inflation, assumed to be of the warm type, is driven by one of the scalar

Cosmological dark fluid from five-dimensional vacuum

In the framework of the induced matter theory of gravity, we derive a five-dimensional solution of the field equations that can describe a four-dimensional cosmological scenario where the dark fluid

A Review on the Scalar Field/Bose-Einstein Condensate Dark Matter Model

We review the work done so far aimed at modeling in an alternative way the dark matter in the Universe: the scalar field Bose-Einstein condensate dark matter (SFDM/BEC) model. We discuss a number of

Unified Dark Matter Scalar Field Models

This work considers the general Lagrangian of k-essence, which allows to find solutions around which the scalar field describes the desired mixture of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, in connection with galactic halo rotation curves.

Dynamics of Scalar Field Dark Matter With a Cosh-like Potential

The dynamics of a cosmological model of dark matter and dark energy represented by a scalar field endowed with a cosh-like potential plus a cosmological constant is investigated in detail. By

k-essence model of inflation, dark matter, and dark energy

We investigate the possibility for k-essence dynamics to reproduce the primary features of inflation in the early universe, generate dark matter subsequently, and finally account for the presently

Halos of unified dark matter scalar field

We investigate the static and spherically symmetric solutions of Einstein’s equations for a scalar field with a non-canonical kinetic term, assumed to provide both the dark matter and dark energy

Inflation and dark matter in the inert doublet model

We discuss inflation and dark matter in the inert doublet model coupled non-minimally to gravity where the inert doublet is the inflaton and the neutral scalar part of the doublet is the dark matter

On the Nature of Dark Matter

Dark matter in the universe seems to be one of the most important puzzles science has to face in this moment. In this essay, we point out that dark matter could be a spin-0 fundamental interaction of

Noninteracting dark matter

Since an acceptable dark matter candidate may interact only weakly with ordinary matter and radiation, it is of interest to consider the limiting case where the dark matter interacts only with

Dark fluid: A complex scalar field to unify dark energy and dark matter

In this article, we examine a model which proposes a common explanation for the presence of additional attractive gravitational effects\char22{}generally considered to be due to dark

New cosmological model of quintessence and dark matter

We propose a new class of quintessence models in which late times oscillations of a scalar field give rise to an effective equation of state which can be negative and hence drive the observed

Fuzzy cold dark matter: the wave properties of ultralight particles.

These problems might be solved, and the virtues of CDM models retained, even without postulating ad hoc dark matter particle or field interactions, if the dark matter is composed of ultralight scalar particles initially in a (cold) Bose-Einstein condensate, similar to axion dark matter models.

Preheating and the dark sector of the universe

Regarding long-life particle produced during preheating after inflation as dark matter, we find that its backreaction on the field $\ensuremath{\varphi}$ can lock $\ensuremath{\varphi}$ in a false

Quintessential inflation

We present an explicit observationally acceptable model for evolution from inflation to the present epoch under the assumption that the entropy and matter of the familiar universe are from

The statistics of string/M theory vacua

We discuss systematic approaches to the classification of string/M theory vacua, and physical questions this might help us resolve. To this end, we initiate the study of ensembles of effective

Tachyonic quintessential inflation

I study the possibility of constructing an observationally viable scenario where both early inflation and the recently detected accelerated expansion of the universe can be explained by using a
