原始语种摘要: Modular inflation is the restriction to two fields of automorphic inflation, a general group based framework for multifield scalar field theories with curved target spaces, which can be parametrized by the comoving curvature perturbation ℛ and the isocurvature perturbation tensor S IJ . This paper describes the dynamics and observables of these per-turbations and considers in some detail the special case of modular inflation as an extensive class of two-field inflation theories with a conformally flat target space. It is shown that the nonmodular nature of derivatives of modular forms leads to CMB observables in modular invariant inflation theories that are in general constructed from almost holomorphic modular forms. The phenomenology of the model of j -inflation is compared...
