Could atone for that dismal surprise!

In science:

However, the homogeneous initial condition for φ may arise from a previous preheating phase, in which φ couples to the inflaton with a coupling constant that is much smaller than e.
Phase transitions from preheating in gauge theories
As in the earlier case for the inflaton, we show |φ|2 and the effective temperature of different modes of Ei in Fig. (2).
Phase transitions from preheating in gauge theories
The first case we considered shows that a non-thermal phase transition is possible if the inflaton is charged under a gauge group.
Phase transitions from preheating in gauge theories
We present a detailed examination of thermalization after inflation for perturbative inflaton decay.
Thermalization After Inflation and Reheating Temperature
The comoving number density of zero-mode inflaton quanta at time t, nc (t), obeys the relation nc (t) = nI exp(−Γd t); where nI is the inflaton number density at tI .
Thermalization After Inflation and Reheating Temperature
Preheating is the exponentially rapid transfer of energy from the nearly homogeneous inflaton field to fluctuations of other fields and/or the inflaton itself.
The Development of Equilibrium After Preheating
If the inflaton decay into other fields were slow as in perturbation theory the created particles would settle into thermal equilibrium as the inflaton decayed.
The Development of Equilibrium After Preheating
Let us consider a simple Yukawa interaction h ¯ψφψ, which should lead to the production of fermions from inflaton oscillations (in this section we use notation φ for the inflaton field).
Preheating, Thermalization and Supergravity
We want to study the metric perturbations produced by the stress tensor fluctuations of the inflaton field on the homogeneous background of a flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker model, described by the cosmological scale factor a(η), where η is the conformal time, which is driven by the homogenous inflaton field φ(η) = h ˆφi.
Stochastic semiclassical gravity and fluctuations during inflation
First of all, it is assumed that the curvaton field coexists with the inflaton field during inflation, during which the inflaton energy density is the dominant component.
Curvaton reheating: an application to braneworld inflation
We should stress that our analysis applies only to the case where the inflaton survives until late times, since an early decay of the inflaton field would lead to the standard scenario already studied in the literature [1, 2, 18].
Curvaton reheating: an application to braneworld inflation
We expect that the inflaton perturbations would be affected in the same way if the inflaton field is to be the dark matter at late times.
Curvaton reheating: an application to braneworld inflation
To summarize, in our set-up, we have completely relaxed the inflaton sector, although inflation certainly solves the horizon and the flatness problems, however, the inflaton energy density need not reheat the Universe with the SM degrees of freedom.
Sneutrino condensate source for density perturbations, leptogenesis and low reheat temperature
Finally in Sec. 4, I show how warm inflation dynamics based on Eq. (1.2) and with the thermal inflaton fluctuations of Sec. 3, has no ”eta-problem” and has inflaton field amplitudes much below the Planck scale.
Warm inflation solution to the eta-problem
If the temperature scale associated with the radiation energy density produced through this dissipative mechanism is greater than the inflaton mass, T > mφ, then inflaton fluctuations will be significantly altered from their zero temperature behavior.
