A procedure is developed for the recovery of the inflationary potential owl the interval that affects astrophysical scales. The amplitudes of the scalar and tensor metric perturbations and their power-spectrum indices, which can in principle be inferred from large-angle CBR anisotropy experiments and other cosmological data, determine the value of the inflationary potential and its first two derivatives. From these, the inflationary potential can be reconstructed in a Taylor series and the… Expand
Inflationary Potential from 21 cm Tomography and Planck
Three-dimensional neutral hydrogen mapping using the redshifted 21 cm line has recently emerged as a promising cosmological probe. Within the framework of slow-roll reconstruction, we analyze howExpand
Reconstructing the inflaton potential—an overview
The authors review the relation between the inflationary potential and the spectra of density waves (scalar perturbations) and gravitational waves (tensor perturbations) produced, with particularExpand
Reconstructing the inflaton potential: Perturbative reconstruction to second order.
Here, complete expressions for the second-order contributions to the coefficients of the expansion are calculated by including for the first time corrections to the standard expression for the perturbation spectra, indicating the expected accuracy of the reconstruction. Expand
Primordial Black Holes, Eternal Inflation, and the Inflationary Parameter Space after WMAP5
We consider constraints on inflation driven by a single, minimally coupled scalar field in the light of the WMAP5 dataset, as well as ACBAR and the SuperNova Legacy Survey. We use the Slow RollExpand
We explore a broad class of three-parameter inflationary models of the very early Universe, called the Λ-inflation, and its observational predictions: high abundance of cosmic gravitational wavesExpand

It is shown that, unlike earlier results, Induced-gravity Inflation can lead to successful inflation with a very simple lagrangian and � ∼ 10 −6 , rather than 10 −15 as previously reported. Expand
Supernatural inflation: inflation from supersymmetry with no (very) small parameters
Abstract Most models of inflation have small parameters, either to guarantee sufficient inflation or the correct magnitude of the density perturbations. In this paper we show that, in supersymmetricExpand
The new cosmology: Mid-term report card for inflation
Inflation has been the driving idea in cosmology for two decades and is a pillar of the New Cosmology. The inflationary paradigm has now passed its first round of significant tests, with two of itsExpand
Inflation in string theory confronts data
Abstract Following the 2015 Planck release, we briefly comment on the status and some ongoing opportunities in the interface between inflationary cosmology, string theory, and CMB data. TheExpand
Polarization of the microwave background in inflationary cosmology
Abstract We evaluate the large scale polarization of the cosmic microwave background induced, via Thomson scattering prior to decoupling, by nearly scale-invariant spectra of scalar and tensor metricExpand
