Inflation, as a tool for supersymmetry breaking

  1. Mar 5, 2013 #1
    I know that gravitninos are produced in the Early Universe in reheating (after inflation), is this because the end of inflation/reheating period where the inflaton is oscillating about the minima of the potential is analogous to symmetry breaking?

    You realize that gravitinos and gravitons have not been observed right?

    yes but if susy does exist, gravitinos would be produced after inflation.
