Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Inflation and Branes: Theory and Observations

Presented by James Lidsey (Queen Mary),

21 June 2002 00:00 in CM221

"Aspects of braneworld inflationary cosmology are discussed, focusing on the relationship between scalar (density) and tensor (gravitational wave) perturbations generated during inflation in the five--dimensional Randall--Sundrum model. The scenario where a reflection symmetry is imposed in the bulk dimension is considered first and the consequences of relaxing this condition are then determined. In both cases, a model--independent relationship between the amplitudes and scale--dependences of the two spectra is established."
