Title: The constancy of ζ in single-clock Inflation at all loops

Abstract

We show that the density fluctuations produced by inflation do not evolve in time as long as they are longer than the Hubble scale, including all quantum corrections. This result is important to understand the predictions and the self-consistency of inflation, an epoch that is believed to have happened at the beginning of the universe.
