Thermal inflation and baryogenesis in heavy gravitino scenario

By Kiwoon Choi, Kwang Sik Jeong, Wan-Il Park and Chang Sub Shin


We present a thermal inflation model that incorporates the Affleck-Dine leptogenesis in heavy gravitino/moduli scenario, which solves the moduli-induced gravitino problem while producing a correct amount of baryon asymmetry and relic dark matter density. The model involves two singlet flat directions stabilized by radiative corrections associated with supersymmetry breaking, one direction that generates the Higgs \mu and B parameters, and the other direction that generates the scale of spontaneous lepton number violation. The dark matter is provided by the lightest flatino which might be identified as the axino if the model is assumed to have a U(1)_{PQ} symmetry to solve the strong CP problem. We derive the conditions for the model to satisfy various cosmological constraints coming from the Big-Bang nucleosynthesis and the dark matter abundance.Comment: 34 pages, typos corrected, comments and references adde
