### Eternal inflation and the quantum birth of cosmic structure

- Economics
- 2017

We consider the eternal inflation scenario of the slow-roll/chaotic type with the additional element of an objective collapse of the wave function. The incorporation of this new agent to the…

### Observational and theoretical issues in early universe cosmology

- Economics
- 2014

In this thesis we evaluate and compare competing cosmological models for empirical and theoretical consistency and identify new ways of improving current paradigms of early universe cosmology. In the…

### Gravitational Fluctuations as an Alternative to Inflation III. Numerical Results

- PhysicsUniverse
- 2020

Power spectra play an important role in the theory of inflation, and their ability to reproduce current observational data to high accuracy is often considered a triumph of inflation, largely because…

### Inflationary equilibrium configurations of scalar-tensor theories of gravity

- Physics
- 2020

In this paper we investigate the asymptotic dynamics of inflationary cosmological models that are based in scalar-tensor theories of gravity. Our main aim is to explore the global structure of the…

### Cosmological consequences of a principle of finite amplitudes

- Physics
- 2021

Over 30 years ago, Barrow & Tipler proposed the principle according to which the action integrated over the entire 4-manifold describing the universe should be finite. Here we explore the…

### Homogeneous transitions during inflation: A description in quantum cosmology

- PhysicsPhysical Review D
- 2020

The usual description of inflationary fluctuations uses the framework of quantum field theory (QFT) in curved spacetime, in which quantum fluctuations are superimposed on a classical background…

### New type of hill-top inflation

- Physics
- 2015

We suggest a new type of hill-top inflation originating from the initial conditions in the form of the microcanonical density matrix for the cosmological model with a large number of quantum fields…

### Cycles in the Multiverse

- Economics
- 2012

Eternal inflation is a seemingly generic consequence of theories that give rise to accelerated expansion of the universe and possess multiple vacuum states. Making predictions in an eternally…

### Measure problem in cosmology

- Mathematics
- 2008

The Hamiltonian structure of general relativity provides a natural canonical measure on the space of all classical universes, i.e., the multiverse. We review this construction and show how one can…

### Inflationary Cosmology after Planck 2013

- Physics
- 2014

I give a general review of inflationary cosmology and of its present status, in view of the 2013 data release by the Planck satellite. A specific emphasis is given to the new broad class of theories,…

### Modern Cosmology

- Physics
- 2004

The last five years have seen the coming of age of Modern Cosmology, a mature branch of science based on the Big Bang theory and the Inflationary Paradigm. In particular, we can now define rather…

### Birth of inflationary universes

- Physics
- 1983

A cosmological model is proposed in which the Universe is created by quantum tunneling from ''nothing'' into a de Sitter space. The tunneling is described by a de Sitter-- p Hawking--Moss instanton.…

### Minimal Supergravity Models of Inflation

- Physics
- 2013

We present a superconformal master action for a class of supergravity models with one arbitrary function defining the Jordan frame. It leads to a gauge-invariant action for a real vector multiplet,…

### Scale-free primordial cosmology

- Physics
- 2014

The large-scale structure of the universe suggests that the physics underlying its early evolution is scale-free. This was the historic motivation for the Harrison-Zel’dovich-Peebles spectrum and for…
