We analyze the class of models where a suitable coupling between the inflaton field and the vector field gives rise to scale-invariant vector perturbations. We exploit the fact that the de Sitter isometry group acts as conformal group on the three-dimensional Euclidean space for the super-Hubble fluctuations in order to characterize the correlators involving the inflaton and the vector fields. 

de Sitter symmetries and inflationary correlators in parity violating scalar-vector models

In this paper we use conformal field theory techniques to constrain the form of the correlations functions of an inflationary scalar-vector model described by the interaction term f1(ϕ)Fμ νFμ ν +

de Sitter symmetries and inflationary scalar-vector models

In this paper, we study the correspondence between a field theory in de Sitter space in D-dimensions and a dual conformal feld theory in a euclidean space in (D - 1)-dimensions. In particular, we

Imprints of spinning particles on primordial cosmological perturbations

If there exist higher-spin particles during inflation which are light compared to the Hubble rate, they may leave distinct statistical anisotropic imprints on the correlators involving scalar and

On the inflationary perturbations of massive higher-spin fields

Cosmological perturbations of massive higher-spin fields are generated during inflation, but they decay on scales larger than the Hubble radius as a consequence of the Higuchi bound. By introducing

Constraints on gauge field production during inflation

In order to gain new insights into the gauge field couplings in the early universe, we consider the constraints on gauge field production during inflation imposed by requiring that their effect on

Distinctive signatures of space-time diffeomorphism breaking in EFT of inflation

The effective field theory of inflation is a powerful tool for obtaining model independent predictions common to large classes of inflationary models. It requires only information about the

Anisotropic inflation with coupled p−forms

We study the cosmology in the presence of arbitrary couplings between p-forms in 4-dimensional space-time for a general action respecting gauge symmetry and parity invariance. The interaction between

We calculate the primordial correlation of gravitons with an abelian gauge field non-minimally coupled through a dynamical dilaton field or a volume moduli during inflation in the early universe. In

Testing the origin of cosmological magnetic fields through the large-scale structure consistency relations

We study the symmetries of the post-recombination cosmological magnetohydrodynamical equations which describe the evolution of dark matter, baryons and magnetic fields in a self-consistent way. This

Arbitrarily coupled p -forms in cosmological backgrounds

In this paper we consider a model based on interacting p -forms and explore some cosmological applications. Restricting to gauge invariant actions, we build a general Lagrangian allowing for



Symmetries and loops in inflation

A bstractIn this paper, we prove that the superhorizon conservation of the curvature perturbation ζ in single-field inflation holds as an operator statement. This implies that all ζ-correlators are

On the non-Gaussian correlation of the primordial curvature perturbation with vector fields

We compute the three-point cross-correlation function of the primordial curvature perturbation generated during inflation with two powers of a vector field in a model where conformal invariance is

Statistical anisotropy of the curvature perturbation from vector field perturbations.

The δN formula for the primordial curvature perturbation ζ is extended to include vector as well as scalar fields. Formulas for the tree-level contributions to the spectrum and bispectrum of ζ are

Conformal Symmetries of Adiabatic Modes in Cosmology

We remark on the existence of non-linearly realized conformal symmetries for scalar adiabatic perturbations in cosmology. These conformal symmetries are present for any cosmological background,

On graviton non-gaussianities during inflation

We consider the most general three point function for gravitational waves produced during a period of exactly de Sitter expansion. The de Sitter isometries constrain the possible shapes to only

Anisotropic bispectrum of curvature perturbations from primordial non-Abelian vector fields

We consider a primordial SU(2) vector multiplet during inflation in models where quantum fluctuations of vector fields are involved in producing the curvature perturbation. Recently, a lot of

Conformal invariance of scalar perturbations in inflation

In inflationary models where the source of scalar perturbations is not the inflaton, but one or more scalars with negligible coupling with the inflaton, the resulting perturbations are not only scale
