Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Brane Inflation and Cosmic superstrings

Presented by Anne Davis, Cambridge U.

9 March 2007 13:00 in CM221

Recent developments in string theory suggest that it might be
possible to realise cosmological inflation using D-branes, with the
formation of cosmic superstrings at the end of brane inflation. Supergravity provides an effective theory to study brane inflation
and the properties of the resulting cosmic strings. I will review
the recent developments and discuss examples using a supergravity effective theory.
