We consider low scale slow roll inflation driven by the gauge-invariant flat directions udd and LLe of the minimally supersymmetric standard model at the vicinity of a saddle point of the scalar potential. We study the stability of the saddle point and the slow roll regime by considering radiative and supergravity corrections. The latter are found to be harmless, but the former require a modest fine-tuning of the saddle point condition. We show that, while the inflaton decays almost instantly… 
Low & high scale MSSM inflation, gravitational waves and constraints from Planck
In this paper we will analyze generic predictions of an inflection-point model of inflation with Hubble-induced corrections and study them in light of the Planck data. Typically inflection-point
Susy seesaw inflation and NMSO(10)GUT
We show that Supersymmetric models with Type I seesaw neutrino masses support slow roll inflection point inflation. The inflaton is the D-flat direction labelled by the chiral invariant HLN composed
Inflection point inflation within supersymmetry
We propose to address the fine tuning problem of inflection point inflation by the addition of extra vacuum energy that is present during inflation but disappears afterwards. We show that in such a
On the Realization of MSSM Inflation
We study the fine-tuning problem on the initial condition of inflation in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), associated with the narrowness of the slow-roll region. We consider two
Fourth level MSSM inflation from new flat directions
We propose a model of inflation driven by minimal extension of SUSY, commonly known as MSSM. Starting from gauge invariant flat directions in the n = 4 level comprising of QQQL,QuQd,QuLe and uude, we

Reheating, thermalization and non-thermal gravitino production in MSSM inflation
In the framework of MSSM inflation, matter and gravitino production are here investigated through the decay of the fields which are coupled to the udd inflaton, a gauge-invariant combination of
Warm inflection
A bstractWhile ubiquitous in supersymmetric and string theory models, inflationary scenarios near an inflection point in the scalar potential generically require a severe fine-tuning of a priori
Standard-smooth hybrid inflation
We consider the extended supersymmetric Pati-Salam model which, for {mu}>0 and universal boundary conditions, succeeds to yield experimentally acceptable b-quark masses by moderately violating Yukawa

Gauge-invariant inflaton in the minimal supersymmetric standard model.
We argue that all the necessary ingredients for successful inflation are present in the flat directions of the Minimally Supersymmetric Standard Model. We show that out of many gauge-invariant
Identifying the curvaton within MSSM
We consider inflaton couplings to MSSM flat directions and the thermalization of the inflaton decay products, taking into account gauge symmetry breaking due to flat direction condensates. We then

Reheating in supersymmetric high scale inflation
Motivated by our earlier work, we analyze how the inflaton decay reheats the Universe within supersymmetry. In a nonsupersymmetric case the inflaton usually decays via preheating unless its couplings

In supersymmetric extensions of the particle physics standard model, gauge invariant combinations of squarks and sleptons (flat directions) can acquire large expectation values during a period of
