We reply to L.P. Grishchuk's comment (gr-qc/9801011) on our paper ``The Influence of Cosmological Transitions on the Evolution of Density Perturbations'' (Phys. Rev. D 57, 3302, 1998). We show that his points of criticism are not correct.

Validity of the ‘conservation law’ in the evolution of cosmological perturbations

- Physics
- 1998

ABSTRA C T It is shown that the ‘conservation law’ for metric fluctuations with long wavelengths is indeed applicable for growing modes of perturbations, which are of interest in cosmology, in spite…

Comment on ``Density perturbations in the ekpyrotic scenario''

- Physics
- 2003

In the paper by J. Khoury , Phys. Rev. D 66, 046005 (2002), it is argued that the expected spectrum of primordial perturbations should be scale invariant in this scenario. Here we show that, contrary…

ON SIGNATURES OF SHORT DISTANCE PHYSICS IN THE COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND

- Physics
- 2002

Following a self-contained review of the basics of the theory of cosmological perturbations, we discuss why the conclusions reached in the recent paper by Kaloper et al.1 are too pessimistic…

Perturbations in inflationary cosmologies with smooth exit

- Physics
- 1998

We give a comprehensive analysis of how scalar and tensor perturbations evolve in cosmologies with a smooth transition from power-law-like and de Sitter-like inflation to a radiation era. Analytic…

The "standard innationary result" has been connrmed once again. This time, by Martin and Schwarz 1]. The fallacy-"the closer the innationary epoch is to the de Sitter space-time, the less important…

Second-order cosmological perturbations: New conserved quantities and the general solution at super-horizon scale

- PhysicsPhysical Review D
- 2019

The study of long-wavelength scalar perturbations, in particular the existence of conserved quantities when the perturbations are adiabatic, plays an important role in e.g., inflationary cosmology.…

A universal bound on excitations of heavy fields during inflation

- Physics
- 2014

We discuss a universal bound on any excitation of heavy fields during inflation: the ratio of the heavy field's energy density to the one driving inflation must be less than the maximally allowed…

Inflation and the theory of cosmological perturbations

- Physics
- 1997

The hypothesis that the Universe underwent a period of exponential expansion at very early times has become the most popular theory of the early Universe. Not only does it solve some of the problems…

On the Spectrum of Fluctuations in an Effective Field Theory of the Ekpyrotic Universe

- Physics
- 2001

We consider the four-dimensional effective field theory which has been used in previous studies of perturbations in the Ekpyrotic Universe, and discuss the spectrum of cosmological fluctuations…
