Anisotropic power-law inflation for a conformal-violating Maxwell model

11 Dec 2017  ·  Do Tuan Q., Kao W. F. ·

A set of power-law solutions of a conformal-violating Maxwell model with a non-standard scalar-vector coupling will be shown in this paper. In particular, we are interested in a coupling term of the form $X^{2n} F^{\mu\nu}F_{\mu\nu}$ with $X$ denoting the kinetic term of the scalar field... Stability analysis indicates that the new set of anisotropic power-law solutions is unstable during the inflationary phase. The result is consistent with the cosmic no-hair conjecture. We show, however, that a set of stable slowly expanding solutions does exist for a small range of parameters $\lambda$ and $n$. Hence a small anisotropy can survive during the slowly expanding phase. read more
