Aspects of non-minimal inflation (in English)

  • SPEAKER: Prof. Tomo Takahashi
    (Saga University)
  • DATE: Jun. 27th (Thu.) 15:30-
  • PLACE: Kenkyu Honkan 1F, Conference Room 1

We discuss models of inflation where the inflaton is non-minimally coupled to gravity in some general setting, focusing on their predictions on inflationary observables such as the spectral index and tensor-to-scalar ratio. We consider both metric and Palatini formalisms of gravity and argue that how some inflation models can be alleviated by introducing a non-minimal coupling to gravity. The issues of distinguishing variants of such models are also discussed.
