Title: A brief introduction to the model of solid inflation

Speaker: Koki Tokeshi

Abstract: Many inflationary models can be treated in the framework of the conventional effective field theory approach, in which the time translation symmetry slightly breaks to realize quasi de Sitter Universe [2]. The model of solid inflation, proposed and systematically analyzed in [1], gives an exception: the spatial translation symmetries are broken in the model. In this talk, I will review the model and introduce many unusual features stemmed from the drastically different symmetry breaking pattern. Since the scalar amplitude could be enhanced compared to the conventional prediction, I will also discuss possibility of black hole formation in the model [3].
