We investigate for an Effective Field Theory (EFT) framework that can consistently explain inflation to Large Scale Structures (LSS). With the development of the construction algorithm of EFT, we arrive at a properly truncated action for the entire scenario. Using this, we compute the two-point correlation function for quantum fluctuations from Goldstone modes and related inflationary observables in terms of coefficients of relevant EFT operators, which we constrain using Planck 2015 data. We… Expand
