Inflation from Magnetic Drift
Speaker(s): Mark Wyman
Abstract: I will describe a new, generic mechanism for realizing a period of slowly-rolling inflation through the use of an analog of 'magnetic drift.' I will demonstrate how the mechanism works through two particular worked examples: Chromo-Natural Inflation, which exists as a purely 4D effective theory,... read more

What's Blowing up the Universe?
Speaker(s): Mark Wyman
Abstract: The reason cosmologists have a job is that the Universe as a whole -- the stuff between planets and stars and galaxies -- is, despite first appearances, a pretty interesting place. The strangest fact about it is that it's expanding, and always has been, as far as we know (and though Einstein's theor... read more

Cosmic superstrings: observable relics of brane inflation
Speaker(s): Mark Wyman
Abstract: Cosmic strings are a generic by-product of string theory models of the inflationary epoch. These new cosmic "superstrings," as they are called, are distinct from the grand unified strings once thought to generate large scale structure. I will discuss what limits the WMAP and SDSS data have already p... read more
