Title: G-warm inflation

Abstract

A warm inflationary universe in the context of Galileon model or G-model is studied. Under a general formalism we study the inflationary dynamics and the cosmological perturbations considering a coupling of the form G (φ, X )= g (φ) X . As a concrete example, we consider an exponential potential together with the cases in which the dissipation and Galilean coefficients are constants. Also, we study the weak regime given by the condition R <1+3 gH φ-dot , and the strong regime in which 1< R +3 gH φ-dot . Additionally, we obtain constraints on the parameters during the evolution of G-warm inflation, assuming the condition for warm inflation in which the temperature T > H , the conditions or the weak and strong regimes, together with the consistency relation r = r ( n {sub s} ) from Planck data.

  • The aim of this paper is to explore warm inflation in the background of f(G) theory of gravity using scalar fields for the FRW universe model. We construct the field equations under slow-roll approximations and evaluate the slow-roll parameters, scalar and tensor power spectra and their corresponding spectral indices using viable power-law model. These parameters are evaluated for a constant as well as variable dissipation factor during intermediate and logamediate inflationary epochs. We also find the number of e-folds and tensor- scalar ratio for each case. The graphical behavior of these parameters proves that the isotropic model in f(G) gravitymore » is compatible with observational Planck data.« less
  • A two-component mixture fluid which complies with the gamma law is considered in the framework of inflation with finite temperature. The model is developed for a quartic scalar potential without symmetry breaking. The radiation energy density is assumed to be zero when inflation starts and remains below the grand unified theory (GUT) temperature during the inflationary stage. Furthermore, it provides the necessary number of e folds and sufficient radiation energy density so GUT baryogenesis can take place near the minimum energetic configuration.
  • Assuming a first order phase transition during inflation, a model scenario is described which does not require a tiny coupling constant. Thermal equilibrium is closely maintained as inflation commences. No large scale reheating is necessary. Solutions for {ital N}{gt}70 are found for any {delta}{rho}/{rho} in the range 10{sup {minus}5}{minus}10{sup {minus}3}. {copyright} {ital 1995} {ital The} {ital American} {ital Physical} {ital Society}.
  • A quantum field theory warm inflation model is presented that solves the horizon and flatness problems. The model obtains, from the elementary dynamics of particle physics, cosmological scale factor trajectories that begin in a radiation dominated regime, enter an inflationary regime, and then smoothly exit back into a radiation dominated regime, with non-negligible radiation throughout the evolution. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • The SUSY hybrid inflation model is found to dissipate radiation during the inflationary period. Analysis is made of parameter regimes in which these dissipative effects are significant. The scalar spectral index, its running, and the tensor-scalar ratio are computed in the entire parameter range of the model. A clear prediction for strong dissipative warm inflation is found for n{sub S}-1{approx_equal}0.98 and a low tensor-scalar ratio much below 10{sup -6}. The strong dissipative warm inflation regime also is found to have no {eta} problem and the field amplitude much below the Planck scale. As will be discussed, this has important theoreticalmore » implications in permitting a much wider variety of SUGRA extensions to the basic model.« less
