On Thermalization in de Sitter Space

Abstract

We discuss thermalization in de Sitter space and argue, from two different points of view, that the typical time needed for thermalization is of order R/l pl, where R is the radius of the de Sitter space in question. This time scale gives plenty of room for non-thermal deviations to survive during long periods of inflation. We also speculate in more general… (More)
