Models for Compactification from Inflation?

  1. Jul 21, 2003 #1
    Here is a good paper that is quite neat makes a good case for evolving extensions to Inflation models.

    This is a more recent discussion of how the no-go theorem for accelerating universes in M theory can be evaded by a time varying internal space. However, it seems that the internal space is expanding rather than compactifying.

    This is apparently the most recent discussion of string inflation. Subsequent to a 2003 paper by several authors including Linde and Maldacena http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0308055 there seems to have been considerable interest in stringy inflation.
