In the dewy upland places, in the garden of God,

For my sleek self a savage scorn,—
Urge to atone;
So when a starving cur I saw
I bandaged up its bleeding paw
And bought a bone.

In science:

Although an incredibly conservative constraint, with no particular reference to any experiment, this produced the strong limit ω ≤ 30 + log10 M /mP l where M is, once again, the inflaton mass scale.
The End for Extended Inflation?
The inflaton mass scale is also strongly constrained.
The End for Extended Inflation?
Scalar fields are copious in modern particle theories but in these contexts they do not exhibit very specific properties needed in the currently popular models of inflationary evolution of the early universe; usually one puts an inflaton field in the theory just by hand.
Universality of Einstein's General Relativity
These attempts aim a high accuracy reconstruction of the inflaton potential.
Gravitational Wave Spectrums from Pole-like Inflations based on Generalized Gravity Theories
To succeed, it needs a weakly-coupled scalar field, the so-called inflaton, which, some time after the big bang, finds itself homogeneously displaced from the minimum of its potential, and slowly rolls towards it.
A Simple/Short Introduction to Pre-Big-Bang Physics/Cosmology
My main reservations towards this solution (see5 for a different criticism) are that no one has a convincing model for what the inflaton ought to be and, even more seriously, that it is not easy to justify the initial conditions that can provide a sufficiently long inflationary phase.
A Simple/Short Introduction to Pre-Big-Bang Physics/Cosmology
No need to “invent” an inflaton, or to fine-tune potentials. • Inflation is “natural” thanks to the duality symmetries of string cosmology. • The initial conditions problem is decoupled from the singularity problem: a solution to the former is already shaping up and looks exciting.
A Simple/Short Introduction to Pre-Big-Bang Physics/Cosmology
Most field theory descriptions of inflation represent the vacuum energy through a scalar field satisfying eq. (1), with φ referred to as the inflaton.
The Warm Inflation Early Universe
With this follows reactive forces on the inflaton, and they can slow the motion of the inflaton.
The Warm Inflation Early Universe
Thus Ginzburg-Landau kinetics is a viable possibility for the inflaton, provided that appropriate conditions can be realized.
The Warm Inflation Early Universe
The inflaton must release adequate vacuum energy into the heat bath to compensate for dilution of the heat bath due to inflationary expansion.
The Warm Inflation Early Universe
Simultaneously the reaction of the heat bath on the inflaton must be sufficient to slow the inflaton’s roll down the potential.
The Warm Inflation Early Universe
In this limit, the inflaton has a vacuum equation of state since ρφ ≈ V (φ) which for a scalar field implies pφ = −ρφ .
The Warm Inflation Early Universe
The fundamental origin of dissipation arises from the coupling of the inflaton to other fields which comprise the heat bath.
The Warm Inflation Early Universe
And we can argue about whether something that achieves the same end result is just isomorphic to inflation, even if interpretted differently. ‘Inflation’ does not necessarily carry with it the extra baggage of an inflaton potential etc. – although hopefully the connection with particle physics would follow later.
