## Abstract

A set of power-law solutions of a conformal-violating Maxwell model with a non-standard scalar-vector coupling will be shown in this paper. In particular, we are interested in a coupling term of the form \(X^{2n} F^{\mu \nu }F_{\mu \nu }\) with *X* denoting the kinetic term of the scalar field. Stability analysis indicates that the new set of anisotropic power-law solutions is unstable during the inflationary phase. The result is consistent with the cosmic no-hair conjecture. We show, however, that a set of stable slowly expanding solutions does exist for a small range of parameters \(\lambda \) and *n*. Hence a small anisotropy can survive during the slowly expanding phase.

## 1 Introduction

The cosmic inflation [1, 2, 3] has been regarded as a main paradigm of the modern cosmology. It follows from the success of the cosmic inflation resolving quite a number of cosmological problems such as the *horizon*, flatness, and *magnetic-monopole* problems [1, 2, 3]. In addition, the standard inflation model with our early universe assumed to be homogeneous and isotropic has been important in realizing many cosmic microwave background (CMB) observation results inclusign the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) [4, 5] and the Planck [6, 7].

Some recent CMB anomalies was, however, found. For example the hemispherical asymmetry and the cold spot have been detected by the WMAP and Planck. Anisotropic models have therefore been considered as a genearalization of the FLRW inflation [8]. Consequently, modifications for the FLRW inflation are also necessary in order to accommodate the nature of the observed anomalies of CMB. It turns out that one of the simplest modifications is by replacing the FLRW metric by anisotropic but homogeneous Bianchi type spacetimes [9, 10]. Note that many predictions made with anisotropic inflation have been done before the mentioned anomalies were detected [11, 12].

The Bianchi models have also been discussed extensively in providing evidences for the cosmic no-hair conjecture proposed by Hawking and his colleagues [13, 14]. The cosmic no-hair conjecture postulates that the final-time state of our universe will be simply homogeneous and isotropic regardless of any initial conditions and states of the universe in early time [13, 14]. This conjecture has been a great challenge to the physicists and cosmologists for several decades. Some partial proofs to this conjecture have been worked out. In particular, this conjecture has been theoretically proved for the Bianchi spaces by Wald with an energy conditions approach [15].

Recently, some people have tried to extend the Wald’s proof to a more general scenario, in which the spacetime of universe is assumed to be inhomogeneous [16, 17]. Note that some other interesting proofs for this cosmic no-hair conjecture can be seen in Refs. [18, 19, 20]. Besides the theoretical approaches, a general test using Plancks data on the CMB temperature and polarization has provided observational constraints on the isotropy of the universe [21], by which we might see how precise the cosmic no-hair conjecture is.

The validity of the cosmic no-hair conjecture has also been tested in various cosmological models, including the higher curvature models [22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28], the Lorentz Chern-Simons theory [29, 30], the massive vector theories [31, 32, 33, 34], the nonlinear massive gravity models [35, 36, 37, 38, 39], the massive bigravity [40, 41, 42], and the supergravity-motivated models [43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78]. Among these models, an interesting counter-example to the cosmic no-hair conjecture arising in the supergravity-motivated model proposed by Kanno, Soda, and Watanabe (KSW) [43, 44] has attracted many attentions [45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78].

As a result, the KSW model has been shown to admit a stable and attractive Bianchi type I inflationary solution [43, 44] due to the existence of an unusual coupling term between scalar field and electromagnetic field, \(f^2(\phi )F_{\mu \nu }F^{\mu \nu }\). More interestingly, non-canonical extensions of the KSW model, in which a scalar field takes non-canonical form such as Dirac–Born–Infeld (DBI), supersymmetric Dirac–Born–Infeld (SDBI), and covariant Galileon forms, have also been shown to admit stable and attractive Bianchi type I inflationary solutions [49, 50, 51, 52]. This indicates that the cosmic no-hair conjecture does not hold for the extended KSW models due to the presence of the coupling term \(f^2(\phi )F_{\mu \nu }F^{\mu \nu }\).

Note that the KSW model can be regarded as a subclass of the conformal-violating Maxwell theory with an extended coupling term \(I\left( {\phi ,R,X,\ldots }\right) F_{\mu \nu } F^{\mu \nu } \) [79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107]. Here \(I\left( {\phi , R,X,\ldots }\right) \) is a function of any field of interest. It is known that the conformal invariance must be broken to generate non-trivial magnetic fields [79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90]. Indeed, the coupling between scalar and vector fields, \(\exp [\phi ]F_{\mu \nu } F^{\mu \nu }\), has been proposed in Ref. [81] as a natural origin of large-scale galactic electromagnetic field in the present universe.

Hence a close relation exists between the stable spatial anisotropy of inflationary universe and the broken conformal invariance. Indeed, the mechanism of the broken conformal invariance should induce both non-trivial magnetic fields and a stable spatial anisotropy of spacetime during an inflationary phase. One might also consider some subclasses of the conformal-violating Maxwell theory to see whether the cosmic no-hair conjecture breaks down. In particular, a model with a Ricci scalar non-minimally coupled to the electromagnetic field via a coupling \(Y(R)F_{\mu \nu }F^{\mu \nu }\) [91] has already been considered.

In this paper, we will focus on a possible coupling term with \(I=J^2\left( {X}\right) \) as an algebraic function of the scalar field kinetic term \(X\equiv -\partial ^\mu \phi \partial _\mu \phi /2\). Note that *J* is considered as an arbitrary function of *X*. As a result, we will show that a set of Bianchi type I expanding power-law solutions exists. It will also be shown that these solutions are unstable during the inflationary phase in consistent with the cosmic no-hair conjecture in this model. On the other hand, we can also show that stable solutions do exist during the slowly-expanding phase.

This paper will be organized as follows: (i) A brief review and the motivation of this research have been given in Sect. 1. (ii) A complete setup of the proposed model will be presented in Sect. 2. (iii) A set of Bianchi type I power-law inflationary solutions and its stability will be solved and discussed in Sect. 3 and Sect. 4, respectively. (iv) Finally, concluding remarks will be given in Sect. 5.

*X*). In addition, the Einstein tensor is defined as \(G_{\mu \nu } \equiv {R_{\mu \nu }-\frac{1}{2}R g_{\mu \nu }}\). Similar to Refs. [43, 44, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52], we will focus on the Bianchi type I metric given by

## 3 Anisotropic power-law solutions

*n*are assumed to be positive. For convenience, we will also introduce the following new variables:

*n*behaves similar to the ratio \(\rho /\lambda \) discussed in the KSW model in Refs. [43, 44] with \(I=f^2(\phi ) \sim \exp [2\rho \phi ]\) and \(V(\phi ) \sim \exp [\lambda \phi ]\). This is, however, the only similarity between the KSW model [43, 44] and our proposed model. Indeed, it turns out that all field equations in this paper are not alike as compared to the field equations of the KSW model. With the constraint (3.10), the variable

*v*can be written as

*u*and

*v*, are assumed to be positive. Given \(\eta \) shown in Eq. (3.11), Eqs. (3.8) and (3.9) can be solved to give:

*u*, and

*v*defined above, scalar field equation (3.6) and Friedmann equation (3.7) can be reduced as

*n*is assumed to be positive and \(\zeta > \eta \), \(\zeta _{+}\) can be shown to be only the consistent solution:

*v*implies that \(\eta >0 \) with the help of Eq. (3.9) provided that \(\zeta >1/3\). Hence, the positivity of \(\eta \) leads to a constraint of

*n*given by

*n*. In addition, the constraint \(\zeta -2\eta >0\) leads to the inequality:

*u*leads to the inequality

*n*given by the Eqs. (3.22), (3.23), and (3.25) for the expanding solution with \(\zeta +\eta >0\) and \(\zeta -2\eta >0\). Note that we are interested in the inflationary phase solutions with the following constraints \(\zeta +\eta \gg 1\) and \(\zeta -2\eta \gg 1\). As a result, the constraint \(\zeta +\eta \gg 1\) and the Eq. (3.11) imply that

## 4 Stability analysis of anisotropic solutions

In this section, we will try to show that the new set of power-law solutions are unstable during the inflationary phase. On the other hand, this new set of power-law solutions is stable during the slowly-expanding phase for a limited \(\lambda \)-*n* domain.

### 4.1 Inflationary phase

*m*:

Note that the stability of the anisotropy depends on the choice of the function *I* coupled to the \(U_1\) gauge field. In particular, the anisotropy will survive the inflation if *I* is chosen to be a canonical function of a scalar field as shown in the KSW model [43, 44, 49, 50, 51, 52]. On the other hand, if *I* is chosen as a function of the kinetic term of the scalar field, the anisotropy is unstable during the inflationary phase. As a result, the power-law solutions shows that our universe acts in favor of the forming of an isotropic (de Sitter) space consistent with that the cosmic no-hair conjecture predicts.

### 4.2 Slowly expanding phase

Even the power-law solution is unstable during the inflationary phase, it will be interesting to know whether it is unstable during the slowly-expanding phase. Indeed, we will show that the new set of power-law solutions is stable during the slowly-expanding phase for a small \(\lambda \)-*n* domain. Note that \(\zeta +\eta \) and \(\zeta -2\eta \) are of order one, \({\mathcal {O}}(1)\), for the slowly expanding phase. Note again that unstable solution will not exist if all coefficients \(a_i\) listed above are positive (or negative) definite. In fact, the equation \(f(m)=0\) admits no positive root for a wider range of \(\lambda \) and *n*.

*n*domain numerically in which all real parts of the five roots of \(f(m)=0\) are non-positive, i.e., \(\mathrm{Re}(m_i)\le 0\), during the slowly expanding phase. The result is shown in Fig. 1.

*n*as proved earlier in this section.

*n*chosen within the red region in Fig. 1. Following Refs. [43, 44, 49, 50, 51, 52], we will introduce the dynamical variables

*Y*can be shown to be

Hinted by the allowed region of \(\lambda \) and *n* for the existence of stable expanding-solutions shown above, we can, for example, examine the attractor behavior of the anisotropic fixed point for \(n=1\) (corresponding to the canonical kinetic term) and \(\lambda =1.25\). Note that for this choice the scale factors will be \(\zeta \simeq 1.5\) and \(\eta \simeq 0.015 \ll \zeta \). The result is shown in Fig. 2.

As a result, the anisotropic fixed point can be shown to be the attractor to the dynamical system as expected. This result shows that the \(J^2(X)F^2\) model does admit stable and attractive anisotropic expanding solutions even this model does not admit any stable and attractive anisotropic inflationary solution. Nevertheless, the cosmic no-hair conjecture is indeed violated in the \(J^2(X)F^2\) model. A small anisotropy will still sustain during the slowly-expanding phase and leads to a small anisotropy observed today.

## 5 Conclusions

Inflation has been considered as a main paradigm in the current cosmology. It is successful in solving some fundamental questions in cosmology. The predictions are also consistent with the observations of the cosmic microwave background radiation. In addition, the cosmic no-hair conjecture explains the physical origin of the highly isotropic universe. This conjecture is based on a belief that the vacuum energy dominance would erase any classical hair. The conformal-violating Maxwell model [79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90] proposed in Refs. [43, 44] provides a counter-example to the cosmic no-hair theorem. Hence we propose to study a conformal-violating Maxwell model with a coupling term, \(J^2(X)F^2=J_0^2 X^{2n} F^2\).

In contrast to results found in [43, 44, 49, 50, 51, 52], we found that the new model does not admit any stable and attractive Bianchi type I inflationary solution. By a careful stability analysis, we have found, however, that the proposed model does admit stable and attractive Bianchi type I expanding solutions in the slowly-expanding phase. Hence this model provides another counter-example to the cosmic no-hair conjecture with a tiny spatial hair. The results shown in this paper suggest that a correlation between an anisotropy of universe space and a broken conformal invariance deserve more attentions.

Moreover, small anisotropy is required to explain the origin of large-scale galactic electromagnetic field in the present universe. It would be interesting to examine the validity of the cosmic no-hair conjecture for some other possible coupling terms in the conformal-violating theory. For example, those models that have been discussed recently, e.g., \( I\left( R,R_{\mu \nu },R_{\mu \nu \lambda \kappa }\right) \) [79, 80, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96], \(I=I\left( {A^2}\right) \) [97], \(I=I\left( {G}\right) \) [98, 99], and \(I=I\left[ {(k_F)_{\alpha \beta \mu \nu }}\right] \) [100, 101]. The result shown in this paper focusing on the late-time evolution is a new approach to the selection rules for the compatible models. Hopefully, the result shown here could be helpful to the study on the cosmic evolution of our universe.

**Note added**: The appearance of Ref. [108] came to our attention when are finalizing our paper. Motivated by Refs. [63, 109, 110, 111], Ref. [108] proposes an extension of the KSW model with \(f(\phi ) \rightarrow f(\phi , X)\) similar to ours. In particular, Ref. [108] points out that no small-anisotropy inflationary solutions exists for \(f(X) \propto X^{-n}\) in contrast to our model with \(f(X) \propto X^n\).
