We study particle production at the end of inflation in kinetically driven G-inflation model and show that, in spite of the fact that there are no inflaton oscillations and hence no parametric resonance instabilities, the production of matter particles due to a coupling to the evolving inflaton field can be more efficient than pure gravitational Parker particle production. 

Gravitational particle creation for dark matter and reheating

The purely gravitational dark matter (PGDM) which interacts with the standard model particles only by gravitational interaction is a topic of recent discussion. Due to its feeble interaction, PGDM

G-warm inflation

A warm inflationary universe in the context of Galileon model or G-model is studied. Under a general formalism we study the inflationary dynamics and the cosmological perturbations considering a

Numerical Study of Inflationary Preheating with Arbitrary Power-law Potential and a Realization of Curvaton Mechanism

During inflationary preheating, the energy stored in the inflaton field is rapidly converted into excitations of other entropy fields. This stage is characterized by exponential particle production

Galileon inflation field with three dark eras of the universe

In this paper, we discuss possible three early eras of the universe in the theoretical context of the Galilean cosmology. The first phase is a slow-roll inflation phase in which the friction term in

G-inflation: from the intermediate, logamediate and exponential models

The intermediate, logamediate and exponential inflationary models in the context of Galileon inflation or G-inflation are studied. By assuming a coupling of the form $$G(\phi ,X)\propto \phi ^{\nu

Noncanonical Approaches To Inflation

This Thesis covers both phenomenological and theoretical approaches to the study of inflation: from model-independent parametrizations to modifications of gravity.

This article will review quantum particle creation in expanding universes by focusing on the basic physical principles and on selected applications to cosmological models.

k-Gauss-Bonnet inflation

We propose a novel k-Gauss-Bonnet inflationary model, in which a kinetic term of scalar field is allowed to non-minimally couple to the Gauss-Bonnet topological invariant in the absence of a

Warm G inflation: Intermediate model

A warm-intermediate inflationary universe model is studied in the presence of the Galileon coupling $G(\phi,X)=g(\phi)X$. General conditions required for successful inflation are deduced and

Origin of entropy of gravitationally produced dark matter: The entanglement entropy

We study the emergence of entropy in gravitational production of dark matter particles, ultra light scalars minimally coupled to gravity and heavier fermions, from inflation to radiation domination



Parametric amplification of metric fluctuations during reheating in two field models

We study the parametric amplification of super-Hubble-scale scalar metric fluctuations at the end of inflation in some specific two-field models of inflation, a class of which is motivated by hybrid

Higgs condensation as an unwanted curvaton

During inflation in the early universe, the Higgs field continuously acquires long-wave quantum fluctuations. They accumulate to yield a non-vanishing value with an exponentially large correlation

Reheating in Inflationary Cosmology: Theory and Applications

Reheating is an important part of inflationary cosmology. It describes the production of Standard Model particles after the phase of accelerated expansion. We review the reheating process with a

Nonperturbative Dynamics Of Reheating After Inflation: A Review

Our understanding of the state of the universe between the end of inflation and big bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) is incomplete. The dynamics at the end of inflation are rich and a potential source of

Towards the theory of reheating after inflation

Reheating after inflation occurs due to particle production by the oscillating inflaton field. In this paper we describe the perturbative approach to reheating, and then concentrate on effects beyond

Reheating after inflation.

It is found that at the first stage of reheating the classical inflation field rapidly decays into particles or into other bosons due to a broad parametric resonance, which implies that the inflation field can be a dark matter candidate.

Inflation driven by the Galileon field.

It is shown that (almost) scale-invariant curvature fluctuations can be generated even in the exactly de Sitter background and that the tensor-to-scalar ratio can take a significantly larger value than in the standard inflation models, violating the standard consistency relation.

Preheating and entropy perturbations in axion monodromy inflation

We study the preheating of gauge fields in a simple axion monodromy model and compute the induced entropy perturbations and their effect on the curvature fluctuations. We find that the correction to
