@article{Akrami2020QuintessentialI, title={Quintessential \$\alpha\$-attractor inflation: forecasts for Stage IV galaxy surveys}, author={Yashar Akrami and Santiago Casas and Senwen Deng and Valeri Vardanyan}, journal={arXiv: Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics}, year={2020} }

Single-field models of $\alpha$-attractor quintessential inflation provide a unified picture of the two periods of early- and late-time cosmic acceleration, where both inflation and dark energy are described by a single scalar degree of freedom rolling down a runaway potential. These theoretically well-motivated models have distinct observational predictions that are in agreement with existing cosmological data. We show that the next generation of large-scale structure surveys, even when no…
