Strongly Coupled Inflaton

Abstract

We continue to investigate properties of the strongly coupled inflaton in a setup introduced in arXiv:0807.3191 through the AdS/CFT correspondence. These properties are qualitatively different from those in conventional inflationary models. For example, in slow-roll inflation, the inflaton velocity is not determined by the shape of potential; the fine-tuning problem concerns the dual infrared geometry instead of the potential; the non-Gaussianities such as the local form can naturally become large.Comment: 12 pages; v3, minor revision, comments and reference added, JCAP versio
