We present a realization of Higgs inflation within Supergravity which is largely tied to the existence of a pole of order two in the kinetic term of the inflaton field. This pole arises due to the selected Kaehler potential which parameterizes the SU(2,1)/(SU(2) × U(1)) manifold with scalar curvature R21=−6/N . The associated superpotential includes, in addition to the Higgs superfields, a stabilizer superfield, respects a B − L gauge and an R symmetries and contains the first allowed… Expand


Pole-induced Higgs inflation with hyperbolic Kähler geometries
We present novel realizations of Higgs inflation within Supergravity which are largely tied to the existence of a pole of order two in the kinetic term of the inflaton field. This pole arises due toExpand
Inflation and monopoles in supersymmetric SU(4)c × SU(2)L × SU(2)R
We show how hybrid inflation can be successfully realized in a supersymmetric model with gauge group GPS = SU(4)c ? SU(2)L ? SU(2)R. By including a non-renormalizable superpotential term, we generateExpand
Non-Minimal Higgs Inflation and non-Thermal Leptogenesis in A Supersymmetric Pati-Salam Model
We consider a supersymmetric (SUSY) Grand Unified Theory (GUT) based on the gauge group GPS = SU(4)C × SU(2)L × SU(2)R, which incorporates non-minimal chaotic inflation, driven by a quartic potentialExpand
Variants of Kinetically Modified Non-Minimal Higgs Inflation in Supergravity
We consider models of chaotic inflation driven by the real parts of a conjugate pair of Higgs superfields involved in the spontaneous breaking of a grand unification symmetry at a scale assuming itsExpand
Gravitational Waves, μ Term and Leptogenesis from B − L Higgs Inflation in Supergravity
We consider a renormalizable extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model endowed by an R and a gauged B − L symmetry. The model incorporates chaotic inflation driven by a quarticExpand
Starobinsky-type inflation with products of Kähler manifolds
We present a novel realization of Starobinsky-type inflation within Supergravity using two chiral superfields. The proposed superpotential is inspired by induced-gravity models. The Kaehler potentialExpand
Induced-gravity GUT-scale Higgs inflation in supergravity
Models of induced-gravity inflation are formulated within Supergravity employing as inflaton the Higgs field which leads to a spontaneous breaking of a $$U(1)_{B-L}$$U(1)B-L symmetry atExpand
Unitarizing non-minimal inflation via a linear contribution to the frame function
Abstract We show that non-minimal inflation, based on the ϕ 4 potential, may be rendered unitarity conserving and compatible with the Planck results for 4.6 ⋅ 10 − 3 ≤ r 21 = c 2 R / c 1 R 2 ≤ 1 , ifExpand
Flat Potential for Inflaton with a Discrete R-Invariance in Supergravity
We show that a very flat potential of inflaton required for a sufficient inflation is naturally obtained in $N=1$ supergravity by imposing a discrete $R$-invariance $Z_{n}$. Several cosmologicalExpand
Non-Minimally Gravity-Coupled Inflationary Models
Abstract We consider the non-supersymmetric models of chaotic (driven by a quadratic potential) and hybrid inflation, taking into account the minimal possible radiative corrections to theExpand
