# Inflation from branes at angles

@article{GarcaBellido2003InflationFB, title={Inflation from branes at angles}, author={Juan Garc{\'i}a-Bellido}, journal={arXiv: Astrophysics}, year={2003} }

In this lecture I will review the present status of inflation within string-based brane-world scenarios. The idea is to start from a supersymmetric configuration with two parallel static Dp-branes, and slightly break the supersymmetry conditions to produce a very flat potential for the field that parametrises the distance between the branes, i.e. the inflaton field. This breaking can be achieved in various ways. I will describe one of the simplest examples described in Ref. [1]: two almost…

SUPER HEAVY DARK MATTER ANISOTROPIES FROM D-PARTICLES IN THE EARLY UNIVERSE

- Physics
- 2004

We discuss a way of producing anisotropies in the spectrum of superheavy dark matter, which are due to the distortion of the inflationary space–time induced by the recoil of D-particles upon their…

We discuss a calculable version of brane inflation, in which a set of parallel D-brane and anti-D-brane worlds, initially displaced in extra dimension, slowly attract each other. In the effective…

The force between like sign BPS saturated objects generally vanishes. This is a reflection of the fact that BPS states are really massless uncharged particles with nonvanishing momenta in…

We review the recent developments in our understanding of non-BPS states and branes in string theory. The topics include 1) construction of unstable non-BPS D-branes in type IIA and type IIB string…

This textbook is the first to provide a modern and unified overview of inflationary cosmology and carefully compares predictions with the latest observations, including those of the cosmic microwave background, the clustering and velocities of galaxies and the epoch of structure formation.
