Supernovae and Weinberg’s Higgs portal dark radiation and dark matter

The observed burst duration and energies of the neutrinos from Supernova 1987A strongly limit the possibility of any weakly-interacting light particle species being produced in the proto-neutron star (PNS) core and leading to efficient energy loss. We reexamine this constraint on Weinberg’s Higgs portal model, in which the dark radiation particles (the Goldstone bosons) and the...

Production of high stellar-mass primordial black holes in trapped inflation

Trapped inflation has been proposed to provide a successful inflation with a steep potential. We discuss the formation of primordial black holes in the trapped inflationary scenario. We show that primordial black holes are naturally produced during inflation with a steep trapping potential. In particular, we have given a recipe for an inflaton potential with which particle...
