Theoretical physics paper now published

My article on reheating and gravitino production in MSSM inflation is now published in The European Physical Journal C. It is a full access publication, if you are interested you can find it here: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1140/epjc/s10052-017-5269-8 Abstract In the framework of MSSM inflation, matter and gravitino production are here investigated through the decay of the fieldsContinue reading “Theoretical physics paper now published”

My new cosmology paper is out!

My latest paper in cosmology is now public! It took many years to write, as it was a single author side-project on a subject that is very different from my main field. My PhD was indeed in particle cosmology, while now I am mostly working on building physics and methods for energy saving in buildings.Continue reading “My new cosmology paper is out!”

Primordial Inflation and BICEP2 results

March 17th 2014 has been a historical date for all of us cosmologists: the BICEP2 experiment results seem to provide evidence for  both gravitational waves and the inflationary expansion of the early Universe (even though the observed tensor-to-scalar ratio r = 0.20 at 1σ is in tension with the upper bound r<0.11 at 95% C.L. given by aContinue reading “Primordial Inflation and BICEP2 results”

About Quantum Prana, my logo and particle cosmology

My logo certainly carries my initials, however there’s a bit more meaning in it. As you know from my Home page, I am a theoretical physicist, and I got my PhD at the University of Helsinki in 2010. More specifically, my field was particle cosmology with topic supersymmetric dark matter and supergravity. My papers andContinue reading “About Quantum Prana, my logo and particle cosmology”
