The Affleck-Dine mechanism in its simplest form provides baryogenesis from the out-of-equilibrium evolution of a complex scalar field with a simple renormalizable potential. We show that such a model, supplemented by nonminimal coupling to gravity, can also provide inflation, consistent with Planck constraints, simultaneously with the generation of the baryon asymmetry...
