High Energy Seminar
Realizing large-field inflation with stabilizer fields in string theory
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 4272 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Aitor Landete
Abstract: In this talk we will show the challenge of building a stringy embedding, which in the low-energy regime, reproduces the well-known models in supergravity of chaotic inflation with stabilizer fields. We will analyze type IIA setups where the inflationary potential arises from a D6-brane wrapping an internal three-cycle, where the stabilizer field is either an open-string or bulk Kahler modulus. In the end we will analyze type IIB setups where the inflationary potential arises from a D7-brane and the stabilizer field is a complex structure modulus.
