Outline
  • New possible solution to the η-problem in SUGRA inflation:Heisenberg symmetry with stabilised modulus
  • New class of models, very suitable for applying symmetry solutions to the η-problem: Tribrid Inflation
  • New possibile connection to particle physics (application of‘Tribrid Inflation’): Unified Matter Inflation in SUSY GUTs
inflationary epoch in the early universe
Inflationary epoch in the early universe
  • Requirements for “slow roll“ inflation
      • “Slow roll parameters” small: ε, |η|, ξ << 1, V ~ V0 dominates“slope of V” “inflaton mass”
the problem
The η-problem
  • Challenge for realising inflation: Flat enough potential,
    • Generic (effective field theory)
    • In supergravity (with K = ϕ*ϕ and V0 from F-term)

approaches to solve the problem 3 strategies
Approaches to solve the η-problem: 3 strategies

requires tuning of parameters!(at 1%-level)

  • Expansion of K in fields/MP:
  • 'Shift' symmetry:
  • Heisenberg symmetry:

protects Im[ϕ] from obtaininga SUGRA mass by symmetry!

(used in many works ...)

solves the η-problem for |ϕ| by symmetry!

Gaillard, Murayama, Olive ('95),S.A., Bastero-Gil, Dutta, King, Kostka (’08,’09)

T: 'modulus field’ → has to be stabilised

approaches to solve the problem 3 strategies1

Remark:Symmetries have to be broken to allow for slope of V(ϕ)!→ approximate symmetries

Approaches to solve the η-problem: 3 strategies
  • Expansion of K in fields/MP:
  • 'Shift' symmetry:
  • Heisenberg symmetry:
heisenberg symmetry solution to the problem
Heisenberg symmetry solution to the η-problem
  • Example for K:
      • Field X: Provides the vacuum energy V0 by |FX|2 during inflation
      • Consider suitable W with (i) Winf = 0, Wϕ = 0 during inflation and (ii) which yields a tree-level ϕ-flat potential in global SUSY limit
      • Parameter κρ: Couples ρ to V0

K invariant under Heisenberg symmetry

Example: No-scale form; More general: f(ρ)

heisenberg symmetry solution to the problem1
Heisenberg symmetry solution to the η-problem
  • Calculate Lkin and VF:
        • In the the (ϕ,ρ)-basis: no kinetic mixing between ϕ and ρ
        • The F-term scalar potential depends only on ρ (and not on ϕ)

→ η-problem solved!

→ ρ can be stabilsed by large V0

Modulus field ρ gets stabilized quickly andallows for >> 60 e-foldsof inflation!
