Brane gas + Race track: Implications for Moduli Stabilization and
Inflation
Abstract: Brane gas cosmology provides an attractive possiblity of
being able to resolve the big bang singularity as well as explain
why only three dimensions have become large. However, it suffers from
two major difficulties. First, it doesn't naturally provide an inflationary
phase and second, at late times brane gas mediated moduli stabilization
seems difficult to acheive. I will show that both of these difficulties
can be addressed if one combines brane gas dynamics with race-track
type superpotentials that one obtains for the moduli fields. Although
brane/string gases by themselves cannot stabilize all the moduli,
in conjunction with suitable potentials they can address both the
overshoot problem and give rise to an earlier phase of acceleration. |
