On the equivalence of Starobinsky and Higgs inflationary models in gravity and supergravity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Starobinsky inflation and Higgs inflation in gravity, and their equivalence based on the common inflationary potential are extended to supergravity in the proper framework, where the Starobinsky and Higgs descriptions of inflation arise in two different gauges of the same supergravity model.
