Natural Warm InflationJul 18 2011Sep 06 2011We derive the requirements that a generic axion-like field has to satisfy in order to play the role of the inflaton field in the warm inflation scenario. Compared to the parameter space in ordinary natural inflation models, we find that the parameter ... More

Conformal metrics on $\R^{2m}$ with constant Q-curvatureMay 06 2008We study the conformal metrics on $\R^{2m}$ with constant Q-curvature $Q$ having finite volume, particularly in the case $Q\leq 0$. We show that when $Q<0$ such metrics exist in $\R^{2m}$ if and only if $m>1$. Moreover we study their asymptotic behavior ... More
