Can massive primordial black holes be produced in mild waterfall hybrid inflation?

We studied the possibility whether the massive primordial black holes (PBHs) surviving today can be produced in hybrid inflation. Though it is of great interest since such PBHs can be the candidate

Double inflation as a single origin of primordial black holes for all dark matter and LIGO observations

Primordial Black Hole (PBH) is one of the leading non-particle candidates for dark matter (DM). Although several observations severely constrain the amount of PBHs, it is recently pointed out that

Primordial black holes as a dark matter candidate

The detection of gravitational waves from mergers of tens of Solar mass black hole binaries has led to a surge in interest in Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) as a dark matter candidate. We aim to

Primordial black holes in Higgs-R2 inflation as the whole of dark matter

Primordial black holes are produced in a minimal UV extension to the Higgs inflation with an included R2 term. We show that for parameters consistent with Standard Model measurements and Planck

Primordial black holes from thermal inflation

We present a novel mechanism for the production of primordial black holes (PBHs). The mechanism is based on a period of thermal inflation followed by fast-roll inflation due to tachyonic mass of

Exploring Primordial Black Holes from the Multiverse with Optical Telescopes.

It is demonstrated with numerical studies that future observations of HSC, as well as other optical surveys, will be able to provide a definitive test for this generic PBH formation mechanism if it is the dominant source of dark matter.

Primordial Black Holes from the QCD Axion.

A mechanism to generate primordial black holes (PBHs) that is independent of cosmological inflation and occurs slightly below the QCD phase transition and is naturally realized in QCD axion models with domain wall number N_{DW}>1 and Peccei-Quinn symmetry broken after inflation.

Primordial black holes and secondary gravitational waves from k and G inflation

The possibility that in the mass range around 10-12  M⊙ most of dark matter is constituted of primordial black holes (PBHs) is a very interesting topic. To produce PBHs with this mass, the primordial

Primordial black holes from no-scale supergravity

We calculate the primordial black hole abundance in the context of a Wess-Zumino type no-scale supergravity model. We modify the K\"ahler potential, by adding an extra exponential term. Using just

Scalar field instability can lead to a short matter dominated era, during which the matter is represented by large lumps of the scalar field, whose distribution exhibits large fluctuations, leading



Rapid Merger of Binary Primordial Black Holes

We propose a new scenario for the evolution of a binary of primordial black holes (PBHs). We consider the dynamical friction by ambient dark matter and gravitational interaction between a binary and

I and i

There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality.
