Cosmological Seed Magnetic Field from Inflation by Bharat Ratra

Sep 18, 2017, 2:00 PM-3:00 PM

202 Physics Bldg.

Host: Prof. Scott Watson / Contact: Yudaisy Salomón Sargentón, 315-443-5960

A cosmological magnetic field of nG strength on Mpc length scales could be the seed magnetic field needed
to explain observed few microG large-scale galactic magnetic fields. I first briefly review the observational
and theoretical motivations for such a seed field, two galactic magnetic field amplification models, and some
non-inflationary seed field generation scenarios. I then discuss an inflation magnetic field generation model.
I conclude by mentioning possible extensions of this model as well as potentially observable consequences.
