Abstract We identify models of supersymmetric hybrid inflation in which the tensor-to-scalar ratio, a canonical measure of gravity waves produced during inflation, can be as large as 0.03 or so, which will be tested by the Planck satellite experiment. The parameter space achieving this result is found to correspond to an intermediate-scale soft mass for the inflaton. The scalar spectral index lies within the WMAP one sigma bounds, while | d n s / d ln k | ≲ 0.01 .

From hybrid to quadratic inflation with high-scale supersymmetry breaking
Abstract Motivated by the reported discovery of inflationary gravity waves by the Bicep2 experiment, we propose an inflationary scenario in supergravity, based on the standard superpotential used in
Primordial gravitational wave of BICEP2 from dynamical double hybrid inflation
Abstract BICEP2 has observed a primordial gravitational wave corresponding to the tensor-to-scalar ratio of 0.16. It seems to require a super-Planckian inflationary model. In this paper, we propose a
Update on Minimal Supersymmetric Hybrid Inflation in Light of PLANCK
The minimal supersymmetric (or F-term) hybrid inflation is d efined by a unique renormalizable superpotential, fixed by a U(1) R-symmetry, and it employs a canonical Kahler potential. The

Supersymmetric hybrid inflation is an exquisite framework to connect inflationary cosmology to particle physics at the scale of grand unification. Ending in a phase transition associated with
Upper bound on the tensor-to-scalar ratio in GUT-scale supersymmetric hybrid inflation
Abstract We explore the upper bound on the tensor-to-scalar ratio r in supersymmetric (F-term) hybrid inflation models with the gauge symmetry breaking scale set equal to the value 2.86 ⋅ 10 16  GeV

Recent detection of B-mode polarization induced from tensor perturbations by the BICEP2 experiment implies the so-called large field inflation, where an inflaton field takes super-Planckian
Supersymmetric B−L inflation near the conformal coupling
Abstract We investigate a novel scenario of cosmological inflation in a gauged B − L extended minimal supersymmetric Standard Model with R-symmetry. We use a noncanonical Kahler potential and a
An accurate bound on tensor-to-scalar ratio and the scale of inflation
Abstract In this paper we provide an accurate bound on primordial gravitational waves, i.e. tensor-to-scalar ratio ( r ) for a general class of single-field models of inflation where inflation occurs
Pseudosmooth tribrid inflation
We explore a new class of supersymmetric models of inflation where the inflaton is realised as a combination of a Higgs field and (gauge non-singlet) matter fields, using a ``tribrid'' structure of
μ-term hybrid inflation and split supersymmetry
Abstract We consider μ-term hybrid inflation which, in its minimal format with gravity mediated supersymmetry breaking, leads to split supersymmetry. The MSSM μ-term in this framework is larger than


Supersymmetric hybrid inflation redux
Abstract We discuss the important role played during inflation by one of the soft supersymmetry breaking terms in the inflationary potential of supersymmetric hybrid inflation models. With minimal
Testing supersymmetric grand unified models of inflation
Abstract We reconsider a class of well motivated supersymmetric models in which inflation is associated with the breaking of a gauge symmetry G to H, with the symmetry breaking scale M∼1016 GeV.
Hybrid inflation in supergravity
We propose a simple realization of hybrid inflation in supergravity. Inflation in this scenario is relatively short, and inflationary density perturbations fall down on large scales, which
Supersymmetric And Smooth Hybrid Inflation In The Light Of WMAP3
In their minimal form both supersymmetric and smooth hybrid inflation yield a scalar spectral index n{sub s} close to 0.98, to be contrasted with the result n{sub s}=0.951{sub -0.019}{sup +0.015}
Origin of matter in the inflationary cosmology

F-term GUT inflation coupled to N = 1 supergravity is confronted with CMB data. Corrections to the string mass-per-unit-length away from the Bogomolny limit are taken into account. We find that a

Abstract Minimal supersymmetric hybrid inflation utilizes a canonical Kahler potential and a renormalizable superpotential which is uniquely determined by imposing a U(1) R -symmetry. In computing
