Transcript

  • 1. Calculating Non-adiabatic Pressure Perturbations during Multi-field Inflation Ian Huston Astronomy Unit, Queen Mary, University of LondonIH, A Christopherson, arXiv:1111.6919 (PRD85 063507) Software available at http://pyflation.ianhuston.net

  • 6. Motivations Many interesting effects when not purely adiabatic: More interesting dynamics in larger phase space. Non-adiabatic perturbations can source vorticity. Presence of non-adiabatic modes can affect predictions of models through change in curvature perturbations.

  • 9. Vorticity generation Vorticity can be sourced at second order from non-adiabatic pressure: ω2ij − Hω2ij ∝ δρ,[j δPnad,i] ˙ ⇒ Vorticity can then source B-mode polarisation and/or magnetic fields. ⇒ Possibly detectable in CMB. Christopherson, Malik & Matravers 2009, 2011

  • 25. Outcomes and FutureDirections Different evolution of δPnad and δs is clear (S vs S). Scale dependence of S for these models follows nR . Need to be careful about making “predictions” when large isocurvature fraction at end of inflation. Follow isocurvature through reheating for multi-field models to match requirements from CMB.
