Multiple inflation

  title={Multiple inflation},
  author={Jennifer A. Adams and Graham G. Ross and Subir Sarkar},
Attempts at building an unified description of the strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions usually involve several stages of spontaneous symmetry breaking. We consider the effects of such symmetry breaking during an era of primordial inflation in supergravity models. In cases that these occur along flat directions at intermediate scales there will be a succession of short bursts of inflation which leave a distinctive signature in the spectrum of the generated scalar density perturbation… CONTINUE READING
