Title: Axion inflation, proton decay, and leptogenesis in S U ( 5 ) × U ( 1 ) P Q

Abstract

We implement inflation in a nonsupersymmetric SU(5) model based on a nonminimal coupling of the axion field to gravity. The isocurvature fluctuations are adequately suppressed, axions comprise the dark matter, proton lifetime estimates are of order 8 × 1034–3 × 1035 yr, and the observed baryon asymmetry arises via nonthermal leptogenesis. The presence of low-scale colored scalars ensures unification of the Standard Model gauge couplings and also helps in stabilizing the electroweak vacuum.
