Can Higgs be the inflaton - can LHC produce an inflaton 750

  1. Jan 11, 2016 #1
    could the higgs boson be the inflaton 126gev

    if not could the possible 750gev diphoton be the inflaton?

    what are the properties of the inflaton? could inflaton be scalar dark matter?

    Where is the model that would get all the measured couplings right?
    I don't see how you would get that right with the much higher scale of inflation. On the other hand, I didn't check all the ~200 arxiv submissions that appeared so far.
    See the various theory papers for predictions.
    Is that question based on anything?
