Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

I'm looking for a good review on how string theory accounts for inflation. I found a great review on 'classical' inflation by Linde explaining the paradigms in terms of GR and scalar fields but am looking for a good introductory review in terms of the string paradigm.
I'm hoping to understand things like; what a BPS sector actually is, what is tachyon condensation, what do different branes correspond to and why for example does D3 + D3bar leed to inflation.
These are all 'buzzwords' I've seen floating around in papers but dont't know that they are in the first place.

Thanks in advance.

robousy
