In this talk, I analyze full nonlinear curvature perturbations

in exactly soluble models of slow-roll inflation

Using dN formalism,

(dN··· e-folding number perturbation)

- We can explicitly see how and when curvature
- perturbations are generated.

- Non-Gaussianity can be explicitly evaluated.

We may deepen our understanding of

cosmological perturbations.

- each Hubble region evolves independently

- perturbations on superhorizon scales
- ≈ difference between different FLRW universes

- calculate dN for different FLRW universes

- In slowroll inflation, all decaying mode solutions of the

→ N=indep. of df/dt

where df =dfF (on flat slice) at horizon-crossing.

- The above formula is valid for any model in which
- N is only a function of f but not of df/dt.

Parametrize orbits by an angle at the end of inflation

This determines g in terms of f1 & f2 .

- dN valid to full nonlinear order is simply given by

- To be precise, one has to add a correction term to adjust
- the energy density difference at the end of inflation

(assuming instantaneous thermalization)

However, this correction is negligible

So, here is a birthday present for you, Andrei.

hope you like it...

- Exactly soluble models are useful in understanding
- generation of (nonlinear) curvature perturbations

- Curvature perturbation may be generated from both
- adiabatic and entropy perturbations during inflation

- In multi-field models, final amplitude of curvature
- perturbation depends crucially on how inflation ends.

- n-brid inflation looks like an almighty model!

(classically. negligible quantum corrections assumed)
