How to Use the Cosmological Schwinger Principle to Predict Energy Flux, Entropy, and an Effective Electric Field at the Start of Inflation in Terms of Inflaton Potentials.

Authors: Andrew Beckwith

The idea is to cut down on the number of independent variables to get as simple an emergent space time structure of entropy and its generation as possible. Initial assumptions as to TPlanck ~ 1019. An effective electric field, based upon the Cosmological Schwinger principle is derived, via dimensional analysis, then a heat flux, with subsequent entropy production in a manner tied in with candidates as to inflaton potentials in a way the author has not seen in the literature. The effective electric field is important because it enables a direct analogy with the Schwinger result, 1951, of an E field leading to a numerical count of pairs of e+e- echarges nucleated in a space time volume V.t . Note that in most inflationary models, the usual assumption is for a magnetic field, not electric field. Having an electric field permits a kink anti kink construction in lieu of what Beckwith did in CDW (PhD dissertation) plus allows for explicit emergent relic particle frequency range between one to 100 GigaHertz. The novel contribution is the importance of a relic E field, instead of a B field, in inflationary relic particle formation and vacuum nucleation for reasons explained in this manuscript.

Comments: 9 pages, 2 figures. Will be brought up as part of poster in DICE 2010, as part of Beckwith's DICE 2010 contribution to the conference proceedings.
