  • We find the best-fit cosmological parameters for a scenario of inflation withonly the sufficient amount of accelerated expansion for the $\lambda\phi^4$potential. While for the simplest scenario of chaotic inflation all observableprimordial fluctuations cross the Hubble horizon during the slow-roll epoch,for the scenario of just-enough inflation the slow-roll conditions are violatedat the largest length scales. Performing a numerical mode-by-mode integrationfor the perturbations on the largest… CONTINUE READING
