We consider an alternative warm inflationary scenario in which n scalar fields coupled to a dissipative matter fluid cooperate to produce power-law inflation. The scalar fields are driven by an exponential potential and the bulk dissipative pressure coefficient is linear in the expansion rate. We find that the entropy of the fluid attains its asymptotic value in a characteristic time proportional to the square of the number of fields. This scenario remains nearly isothermal along the… Expand
Asymptotic behavior of the warm inflation scenario with viscous pressure
We analyze the dynamics of models of warm inflation with general dissipative effects. We consider phenomenological terms both for the inflaton decay rate and for viscous effects within matter. WeExpand
The warm inflationary universe
In the past decade, the importance of dissipation and fluctuation to inflationary dynamics has been realized and has led to a new picture of inflation called warm inflation. Although these phenomenaExpand
Dissipative effects in the Early Universe
Inflationary cosmology is the leading candidate for explaining the homogeneity, isotropy and spatial flatness of the universe whilst also providing the mechanism for the seeding of large scaleExpand
Warm inflection
A bstractWhile ubiquitous in supersymmetric and string theory models, inflationary scenarios near an inflection point in the scalar potential generically require a severe fine-tuning of a prioriExpand
Warm Inflation and its Microphysical Basis
The microscopic quantum field theory origins of warm inflation dynamics are reviewed. The warm inflation scenario is first described along with its results, predictions and comparison with theExpand
Absence of isentropic expansion in various inflation models
Dynamics of the inflaton is studied when it interacts with boson and fermion fields and in minimal supersymmetric models. This encompasses multifield inflation models, such as hybrid inflation, andExpand
Warm inflation model building
We review the main aspects of the warm inflation scenario, focusing on the inflationary dynamics and the predictions related to the primordial spectrum of perturbations, to be compared with theExpand
Exploring the Parameter Space of Warm-Inflation Models
Warm inflation includes inflaton interactions with other fields throughout the inflationary epoch instead of confining such interactions to a distinct reheating era. Previous investigations haveExpand
Dissipation coefficients from scalar and fermion quantum field interactions
Dissipation coefficients are calculated in the adiabatic, near thermal equilibrium regime for a large class of renormalizable interaction configurations involving a two-stage mechanism, where aExpand
Non-Gaussian signatures in the cosmic background radiation from warm inflation
We calculate the bispectrum of the gravitational field fluctuations generated during warm inflation, where dissipation of the vacuum potential during inflation is the mechanism for structureExpand

The Case for Hyperbolic Theories of Dissipation in Relativistic Fluids
In this paper we highlight the fact that the physical content of hyperbolic theories of relativistic dissipative fluids is, in general, much broader than that of the parabolic ones. This isExpand
