Are we entering an era of 'Penalty Shoot Out' for inflation?

  1. Jun 25, 2004 #1
    Here is a current paper:http://uk.arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0406230

    the authors can only be described as the 'premier-division' leaders, but the paper seems to be relaying a fundemental shift in Inflationary understandings, and this is having a direct consequence of the vast number of recent papers 'Racing' out of Pre-print arXiv websites with "Cosmological Constant" definitions as being paramount to the content!

    Amazing time's!

    The paper, "Racetrack inflation", models an inflationary scenario in the framework of string theory. There's mention to something called Calabi-Yau volume. Does it refers to the volume of a Calabi-Yau manifold? What's the volume of a Calabi-Yau manifold, considering that's a 6-dimensional manifold?
