Title: Measuring the Particle Spectrum During Inflation
Date (JST): Wed, Apr 04, 2012, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: Observations of the CMB and large scale structure probe the physics of inflation through the statistics of the primordial curvature perturbations. The correlation functions of these perturbations are especially sensitive to the number of light degrees of freedom during inflation. I will explain how the spectrum of particles can impact observations, using supersymmetry as an example.
