Progress and Prospects for the Inflationary Universe

  • Paul Joseph Steinhardt
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 111)

Abstract

The present status of the inflationary universe scenario is briefly reviewed. In particular, the experimentally testable “predictions” of the model are reassessed. Recent progress in obtaining a fully workable inflationary universe model based on supersymmetric field theories is discussed.
