Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: Warm inflation and cosmic microwave background

Presented by Ian Moss (Newcastle),

15 November 2005 16:00 in CLC 202

"This talk will explain why a new type of inflation has completely changed traditional ideas about inflationary models. I will explain why reheating often takes place at the same time as inflation. Constraints on supersymmetric models from cosmology are quite different from what we thought previously. CMB fluctuations now have their origin in thermal fluctuations in the hot big bang, rather than quantum fluctuations. "
