Spontaneous baryogenesis from asymmetric inflaton

By Fuminobu Takahashi and Masaki Yamada


We propose a variant scenario of spontaneous baryogenesis from asymmetric inflaton based on current–current interactions between the inflaton and matter fields with a non-zero B−L charge. When the inflaton starts to oscillate around the minimum after inflation, it may lead to excitation of a CP-odd component, which induces an effective chemical potential for the B−L number through the current–current interactions. We study concrete inflation models and show that the spontaneous baryogenesis scenario can be naturally implemented in the chaotic inflation in supergravity
