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


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.
