Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Attractor solutions in cosmology and particle physics

Presented by "Nelson Nunes (Queen Mary, London)",

24 January 2003 13:00 in CM221

"Scalar fields play an important role both in cosmology and particle physics. It is known that for a large class of scalar potentials there exist attractor solutions for the field's evolution. This means, that we can recover the same late time dynamics from a wide range of initial conditions. This has been seen as a great property to solve initial value problems in cosmology and particle physics. In this talk, I will present and discuss the applications of scalar field attractor solutions to the subjects of Assisted Inflation, Quintessence, Quintessential Inflation and Moduli Stabilisation.
