Looking for an introduction to eternal inflation

  1. Apr 5, 2012 #1
    Hi,

    I currently have to learn about the topic of eternal inflation, at a basic level for now, I am already familiar with the topic of inflation. I don't know what are the good references to this subject. I will try to start in Weinberg's book of cosmology (the one published in 2008), but is there a better reference?

    Thanks.

    Here is a summary of eternal inflation by it's founder, Alan Guth:

    Also, here is Modern Cosmology, a textbook by Scott Dodelson:

    Thanks for the first reference, clear and neat description of the motives behind inflation and eternal inflation ;) For the second reference, I may try to find the book at my university's library.
