Broadhead, Matt and McDonald, John (2005) Simulations of the end of supersymmetric hybrid inflation and nontopological soliton formation. Physical Review D, 72 (4). 043519. ISSN 1550-7998Full text not available from this repository.
We present two- and three-dimensional simulations of the growth of quantum fluctuations of the scalar fields in supersymmetric hybrid inflation models. For a natural range of couplings, subhorizon quantum fluctuations undergo rapid growth due to scalar field dynamics, resulting in the formation of quasistable nontopological solitons (inflaton condensate lumps) which dominate the postinflation era.
