I will discuss the development of inflationary theory and its present status, including recent progress in describing de Sitter space and inflationary universe in string theory. 

Prospects of Inflation

I will discuss the development of inflationary theory and its present status, including recent progress in describing de Sitter space and inflationary universe in string theory.

Current understanding of inflation

On Inflation in String Theory

In this talk we describe recent progress in construction of inflationary models in the context of string theory with flux compactification and moduli stabilization. We also discuss a possibility to

Inflation and string cosmology

I give a brief review of inflationary theory and of its recent progress related to string cosmology.

Inflation and String Theory

We review cosmological inflation and its realization in quantum field theory and in string theory. This material is a portion of a book, also entitled "Inflation and String Theory", to be published

Accelerating universes and string theory

This paper reviews recent developments in the study of universes with a positive cosmological constant in string theory.

Accelerating universes and string theory

This paper reviews recent developments in the study of universes with a positive cosmological constant in string theory.

Advances in Inflation in String Theory

We provide a pedagogical overview of inflation in string theory. We focus upon the sensitivity of inflation to Planck-scale physics, which we argue provides both the primary motivation and the

Brane Inflation and Fine Tuning

We argue about the importance of embedding the successful mechanism of Inflation in the context of a fundamental theory. We review some of the attempts in this direction made in the framework of

Seeking string theory in the cosmos

We review the existence, formation and properties of cosmic strings in string theory, the wide variety of observational techniques that are being employed to detect them, and the constraints that

Which is the Best Inflation Model

Reasonable-looking models of inflation are compared, taking into account the possibility that the curvature perturbation might originate from some "curvaton" field different from the inflaton.

De Sitter Space In Non-Critical String Theory

We review a construction of de Sitter space from asymmetric orientifold compactifications of non-critical string theory.

Extended inflationary cosmology.

TLDR
A new type of inflationary scenario based on metric formulations of gravity different from that of Einstein, e.g., Brans-Dicke theory of gravity is presented, which can be completed via bubble nucleation and fine tuning of an effective potential to obtain a slow-rollover transition.

Inflationary Cosmology and the Mass Hierarchy in Locally Supersymmetric Theories

We present an N = 1 locally supersymmetric theory in which all constraints for a successful new inflationary-universe scenario are satisfied and the gravitino mass is on the order of the electroweak

Locally supersymmetric cosmology and the gauge hierarchy

We motivate and present a locally supersymmetric theory that satisfies all the constraints for a successful, new inflationary-universe scenario, and has a naturally light gravitino. The reheating
