We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, May 26, at 18:00 (Moscow time). The seminar will be arranged via Zoom.
Speaker: Dr. Fedor Bezrukov, University of Manchester
Title: Inflation and reheating with Higgs inflation and related models
Abstract: Using the Higgs field for inflation is an economic way to solve two problems with one scalar field -- Higgs field is require in the Standard Model, and a scalar field is the simplest method to drive inflation of the early Universe. However, consistent attempt to do this takes us to the limits of validity of the quantum field theory, and significant problems with the reheating after inflation. I’ll discuss the ways to deal with this by combining the theory with R^2 gravitational terms, and describe the highly nontrivial dynamics of the system after inflation
