Violating Rotational or Translational Invariance During Inflation (Joint with Phenomenology)

Friday, January 29th, 2010
Speaker: Mark B. Wise Caltech

I explore the possibility that rotational or translational invariance is violated during the inflationary era but restored at the end of the inflationary era. This possibility is constrained by data on the microwave background anisotropy. Some particular inflationary models are discussed.
