Scalar and spinor fields in the very early universe

Here it is shown how the vacuum energy may dominate the energy density of the very early universe even when the Higg's field in the Coleman-Weinberg potential is confined near the origin at extremely high temperature and the inflationary scenario may start. Also it is shown that supersymmetry breaking may be responsible for this phenomenon. Thus it provides another support for the hypothesis of primordial inflation proposed by Ellis et al. [4],
