A TIME VARYING STRONG COUPLING CONSTANT AS A MODEL OF INFLATIONARY UNIVERSE

By N. Chamoun, H. Vucetich and La PlataObservatorio Astronómico and La Plata

Abstract

We consider a scenario where the strong coupling constant was changing in the early universe. We attribute this change to a variation in the colour charge within a Bekenstein-like model. Treating the vacuum gluon condensate < G 2> as a free parameter, we could generate inflation, similar to a chaotic inflation scenario, with the required properties to solve the fluctuation and other standard cosmology problems. A possible approach to end the inflation is suggested. Key words: fundamental constants; inflationary models; cosmology; QCD PACS: 98.80Cq,98.80-k,12.38-
