Vacuum bubbles may nucleate during the inflationary epoch and expand, reaching relativistic speeds. After inflation ends, the bubbles are quickly slowed down, transferring their momentum to a shock wave that propagates outwards in the radiation background. The ultimate fate of the bubble depends on its size. Bubbles smaller than certain critical size collapse to ordinary black holes, while in the supercritical case the bubble interior inflates, forming a baby universe, which is connected to the… 

CMB spectral distortions from black holes formed by vacuum bubbles

Vacuum bubbles may nucleate and expand during the cosmic inflation. When inflation ends, the bubbles run into the ambient plasma, producing strong shocks followed by underdensity waves, which

Primordial black holes from spectator field bubbles

We study the evolution of light spectator fields in an asymmetric polynomial potential. During inflation, stochastic fluctuations displace the spectator field from the global minimum of its

Primordial bubbles that possibly nucleate through quantum tunneling during inflation in a multi-dimensional potential might have left some relic detectable at the present time. These bubbles turn

Spin of primordial black holes in the model with collapsing domain walls

The angular momentum (spin) acquisition by a collapsing domain wall at the cosmological radiation-dominated stage is investigated. During the collapses, primordial black holes and their clusters can

Solar mass primordial black holes in moduli dominated universe

We explore the prospect of producing primordial black holes around the solar mass region during an early matter domination epoch. The early matter-dominated epoch can arise when a moduli field comes

Impacts of Jets and winds from primordial black holes

Primordial black holes (PBHs) formed in the early Universe constitute an attractive candidate for dark matter. Within the gaseous environment of the interstellar medium, PBHs with accretion disks

Spins of primordial black holes formed in different cosmological scenarios

Primordial black holes (PBH) could account for all or part of dark matter, as well as for some LIGO events. We discuss the spins of primordial black holes produced in different cosmological

Primordial black holes and gravitational waves in nonstandard cosmologies

For primordial black holes (PBHs) to form a considerable fraction of cold dark matter, the required amplitude of primordial scalar perturbations is quite large ($P_{\zeta}(k) \sim 10^{-2}$) if PBH is

PBH Formation from Spherically Symmetric Hydrodynamical Perturbations: A Review

Primordial black holes, which could have been formed in the very early Universe due to the collapse of large curvature fluctuations, are currently one of the most attractive and fascinating research

Cosmic strings and primordial black holes

Cosmic strings and primordial black holes (PBHs) commonly and naturally form in many scenarios describing the early universe. Here we show that if both cosmic strings and PBHs are present, their



Black holes and the multiverse

Vacuum bubbles may nucleate and expand during the inflationary epoch in the early universe. After inflation ends, the bubbles quickly dissipate their kinetic energy; they come to rest with respect to

Primordial black hole and wormhole formation by domain walls

In theories with a broken discrete symmetry, Hubble sized spherical domain walls may spontaneously nucleate during inflation. These objects are subsequently stretched by the inflationary expansion,

Spherical domain wall collapse in a dust universe

To clarify the observational consequences of bubble nucleations in an inflationary era, we analyze the dynamics of a spherical domain wall in an expanding universe. We consider a spherical shell of

Gravitational wave signatures of inflationary models from Primordial Black Hole dark matter

Primordial Black Holes (PBH) could be the cold dark matter of the universe. They could have arisen from large (order one) curvature fluctuations produced during inflation that reentered the horizon

The Primordial black hole mass spectrum

We examine what mass spectrum of primordial black holes should result if the early universe consisted of small density fluctuations superposed on a Friedmann background. It is shown that only a

Primordial Black Holes as Dark Matter

Primordial black holes (PBHs) may readily form during the radiation dominated stages of the universe from the gravitational collapse of horizon-size energy density fluctuations of moderate amplitude.

Primordial black hole formation during first-order phase transitions

Primordial black holes (PBHs) may form in the early universe when pre-existing adiabatic density fluctuations enter into the cosmological horizon and recollapse. It has been suggested that PBH

Inflationary primordial black holes for the LIGO gravitational wave events and pulsar timing array experiments

Primordial black holes (PBHs) are one of the candidates to explain the gravitational wave (GW) signals observed by the LIGO detectors. Among several phenomena in the early Universe, cosmic inflation

Black holes from nucleating strings.

The density of black holes formed from nucleating strings is too low to be observed, and constraints on domain wall nucleation and monopole pair production during inflation are briefly discussed.
