The simplest curvaton model

  title={The simplest curvaton model},
  author={Nicola Bartolo and Andrew R. Liddle},
We analyze the simplest possible realization of the curvaton scenario, where a nearly scaleinvariant spectrum of adiabatic perturbations is generated by conversion of an isocurvature perturbation generated during inflation, rather than the usual inflationary mechanism. We explicitly evaluate all the constraints on the model, under both the assumptions of… CONTINUE READING
