Investigation on an Nflation phase diagram with multifield polynomial potential

This study aims to investigate an Nflationary phase diagram with a multifield polynomial potential. The gradual vanishing of the inflationary phase during slow roll phase of the Nflation model has ...

Inflation in a web

In a given path with multiple branches, in principle, it can be expected that there are some fork points, where one branch is bifurcated into different branches, or various branches converge into one

Energy transfer in multi field inflation and cosmological perturbations

In cascade inflation and some other string inflation models, collisions of mobile branes with other branes or orbifold planes occur and lead to interesting cosmological signatures. The fundamental



On the number of Nflation fields

In this paper, we study the Nflation model, in which a collection of massive scalar fields drive the inflation, simultaneously. We observe that when the number of fields is larger than the square of

Eternal chaotic inflation is prohibited by the weak gravity conjecture

We investigate whether eternal chaotic inflation can be achieved when the weak gravity conjecture is taken into account. We show that even assisted chaotic inflation with potential λϕ4 or m2ϕ2 cannot

Inflation from tachyon condensation, large N effects

Using only general properties of the tachyon potential we show that inflation may be generic when many branes and anti-branes become coincident. Inflation may occur because of: (1) the assistance of

Assisted tachyonic inflation

The model of inflation with a single tachyon field generates larger anisotropy and has difficulties in describing the formation of the Universe [L. Kofman and A. Linde, J. High Energy Phys. 07, 004

Large N cosmology

We motivate inflationary scenarios with many scalar fields, and give a complete formulation of adiabatic and entropy perturbations. We find that if the potential is very flat, or if the theory has a

Instantons, assisted inflation, and heterotic M theory

We first investigate the attractor solution associated with assisted inflation in heterotic M theory to see if it is stable. By perturbing the solutions we find a solitary stable fixed point with the

The Global Structure of the Inflationary Universe

In this article we give a review of recent results concerning the global structure of the inflationary universe, which have been obtained within stochastic approach to inflation. It is shown in

Perturbation spectra of “N-flation”

In this note we study the adiabatic perturbation spectrum of N-flation with power law potential. We show that the scalar spectrum of N-flation is generally redder than that of its corresponding

Birth of inflationary universes

A cosmological model is proposed in which the Universe is created by quantum tunneling from ''nothing'' into a de Sitter space. The tunneling is described by a de Sitter-- p Hawking--Moss instanton.
