# Non-Gaussianity and gravitational wave background in curvaton with a double well potential

@article{Choi2010NonGaussianityAG, title={Non-Gaussianity and gravitational wave background in curvaton with a double well potential}, author={Kiwoon Choi and O. Seto}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2010}, volume={82}, pages={103519} }

We study the density perturbation by a curvaton with a double well potential and give analytical expressions for the observables such as nonlinear parameters f{sub NL}, g{sub NL} and tensor-to-scalar ratio r{sub T} with emphasizing the differences from the simple quadratic potential. We show that the level of non-Gaussianity and the tensor-to-scalar ratio depends crucially on the reheating temperature as well as the curvaton self-coupling constant for a given initial amplitude of the curvaton… Expand

Modulated reheating by a curvaton

- Physics

There might be a light scalar field during inflation which is not responsible for the accelerating inflationary expansion. Then, its quantum fluctuation is stretched during inflation. This scalar… Expand

Primordial non-Gaussianity from mixed inflaton-curvaton perturbations

- Physics

We characterise the primordial perturbations produced due to both inflaton and curvaton fluctuations in models where the curvaton has a quadratic, cosine or hyperbolic potential, and the inflaton… Expand

Runnings in the Curvaton

- Physics

We investigate the scale-dependence, or the runnings, of linear and second order density perturbations generated in various curvaton scenarios. We argue that the second order perturbations, i.e.… Expand

Strongly scale-dependent polyspectra from curvaton self-interactions

We study the scale dependence of the non-linearity parameters fNL and gNL in curvaton models with self-interactions. We show that the spectral indices nfNL = d ln|fNL|/d ln k and ngNL = d ln|gNL|/d… Expand

Can the standard model Higgs boson seed the formation of structures in our Universe

- Physics

We study the standard model Higgs field as a source for the primordial curvature perturbation, particularly in the curvaton and modulated reheating scenario. We conclude that the Higgs cannot play as… Expand

Negative spectral index of $f_{NL}$ in the axion-type curvaton model

We derive the spectral index of fNL and its running from isocurvature single field and investigate the curvaton models with a negative spectral index of fNL in detail. In particular, a numerical… Expand

When a subdominant light scalar field ends slow roll during inflation, but well after the Hubble exit of the pivot scales, it may determine the cosmological perturbations. This thesis investigates… Expand

- Physics

We derive the spectral indices and their runnings of local form f(NL) and g(NL) from a DBI isocurvature field and we find that the indices are suppressed by the sound speed c(s). This effect can be… Expand
