SEMINAR: Schwinger effect in de Sitter space 

Friday January 17 2014, 2:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Jaume Garriga (Universitat de Barcelona)

Abstract : I will discuss the Schwinger process in 1+1 dimensional de Sitter space, and will derive a formula for the conductivity of vacuum.

This setup is also a toy model for describing vacuum decay beyond the semiclassical approximation, which clarifies the possibility of ''upward tunneling" during inflation.
