Inflation and String Theory
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 349

Description:
We review cosmological inflation and its realization in quantum field theory and in string theory. In this book we will describe two intertwined approaches to the physics of inflation: from the bottom up in effective field theory (EFT), and from the top down in string theory.

This text discusses the cosmological constant problem at a pedagogical but fully technical level. We review how the vacuum energy can be regularized in flat and curved space-time and how it can be understood in terms of Feynman bubble diagrams.
