We study the statistical nature of primordial fluctuations from an anisotropic inflation which is realized by a vector field coupled to an inflaton. We find a suitable gauge, which we call the canonical gauge, for anisotropic inflation by generalizing the flat slicing gauge in conventional isotropic inflation. Using the canonical gauge, we reveal the structure of the couplings between curvature perturbations, vector waves, and gravitational waves. We identify two sources of anisotropy, i.e. the… Expand

Primordial gravitational waves and perturbations during an inhomogeneous inflation
We investigate the inhomogeneous inflation, in which the space exponentially expands with inhomogeneities, and its cosmological perturbations. The inhomogeneous inflation is realized by introducingExpand
Curvature Perturbations in Anisotropic Inflation with Symmetry Breaking
We study curvature perturbations in the anisotropic inflationary model with a complex scalar field charged under a $U(1)$ gauge field in Bianchi I universe. Due to Abelian Higgs mechanism, the gaugeExpand
Charged vector inflation
We present a model of inflation in which the inflaton field is charged under a triplet of $U(1)$ gauge fields. The model enjoys an internal $O(3)$ symmetry supporting the isotropic FRW solution. WithExpand
Clustering fossil from primordial gravitational waves in anisotropic inflation
Inflationary models can correlate small-scale density perturbations with the long-wavelength gravitational waves (GW) in the form of the Tensor-Scalar-Scalar (TSS) bispectrum. This correlationExpand
The primordial curvature perturbation from vector fields of general non-Abelian groups
We consider the generation of primordial curvature perturbation by general non-Abelian vector fields without committing to a particular group. Self-interactions of non-Abelian fields make the fieldExpand
Perturbations in Chromo-Natural Inflation
A bstractChromo-Natural Inflation is the first worked example of a model of inflation in which slow-roll inflation is achieved by “magnetic drift” as opposed to Hubble friction. In this work, we giveExpand
Primordial Statistical Anisotropies: The Effective Field Theory Approach
In this work we present the effective field theory of primordial statistical anisotropies generated during anisotropic inflation involving a background $U(1)$ gauge field. Besides the usual GoldstoneExpand
Cosmological density perturbations from conformal scalar field: infrared properties and statistical anisotropy
We consider a scenario in which primordial scalar perturbations are generated when complex conformal scalar field rolls down its negative quartic potential. Initially, these are the perturbations ofExpand
Anisotropy in solid inflation
In the model of solid / elastic inflation, inflation is driven by a source that has the field theoretical description of a solid. To allow for prolonged slow roll inflation, the solid needs to beExpand
Anisotropic Inflation and Cosmological Observations
Recent observations opened up a new window on the inflationary model building. As it was firstly reported by the WMAP data, there may be some indications of statistical anisotropy on the CMB map,Expand
