Title: Inflection-point inflation in a hyper-charge oriented U ( 1 ) X model

Abstract

Inflection-point inflation is an interesting possibility to realize a successful slow-roll inflation when inflation is driven by a single scalar field with its value during inflation below the Planck mass (ΦI≲M Pl). In order for a renormalization group (RG) improved effective λΦ 4 potential to develop an inflection-point, the running quartic coupling λ(Φ) must exhibit a minimum with an almost vanishing value in its RG evolution, namely λ(Φ I)≃0 and β λ(ΦI)≃0, where β λ is the beta-function of the quartic coupling. Here in this paper, we consider the inflection-point inflation in the context of the minimal gauged U(1) X extended Standard Model (SM), which is a generalization of the minimal U(1) B$-$L model, and is constructed as a linear combination of the SM U(1) Y and U(1) B$-$L gauge symmetries. We identify the U(1) X Higgs field with the inflaton field. For a successful inflection-point inflation to be consistent with the current cosmological observations, the mass ratios among the U(1) X gauge boson, the right-handed neutrinos and the U(1) X Higgs boson are fixed. Focusing on the case that the extra U(1) X gauge symmetry is mostly aligned along the SM U(1) Y direction, we investigate a consistency betweenmore » the inflationary predictions and the latest LHC Run-2 results on the search for a narrow resonance with the di-lepton final state.« less
