Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
The Many Ways to Galileon Inflation and an Intriguing Window in Parameter Space
Date: Tuesday, October 22nd
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin
Speaker: Matteo Fasiello, Case Western Reserve University
Abstract: Galileon theories enjoy a number of properties that make their use in inflationary setups particularly compelling. We will illustrate how one arrives at a stable and predictive theory of Galileon inflation and characterize the predictions of this model. We further show how a region of the parameter space of the theory is consistent with a small bispectrum--large trispectrum configuration.
