    Could someone recommend some papers or books on Inflation? I know nothing about it, so I need some accessible ones. Thx.

    I really like Liddle's work... I pretty much worshipped his textbook when first learning cosmology. It's sort of a shame he's formatted it with such wide margins, 36 pages is a lot to print! I guess that's LaTeX for you.

    I think you would want to start with Alan Guth's book, The Inflationary Universe.

    That's a popular science book though, isn't it? I gathered that the OP wanted to learn about inflation as a physicist, and not as a layperson.
