Talk Title: "The Minimal Supersymmetric Inflationary Model (MSIM)"

Abstract:

We consider minimal supersymmetric models of inflation with broken supersymmetry described by constrained super fields.  The minimal supergravity model with linearly realized supersymmetry contains in the spectrum, after super-Higgs effect, GR coupled to a massive gravitino, a sgoldstino, the inflaton and its super partners, the sinflaton and the inflatino.  In the non linear model only the spin 3/2 gravitino and the spin 0 (real) inflaton coupled to GR in a FLRW Universe remain in the spectrum with a scalar potential suitable for inflation.
