Abstract | We consider the polynomial inflation with the tensor-to-scalar ratio as large as possible which can be consistent with the quantum gravity (QG) corrections and effective field theory (EFT). To get a minimal field excursion Delta phi for enough e-folding number N, the inflaton field traverses an extremely flat part of the scalar potential, which results in the Lyth bound to be violated. We get a CMB signal consistent with Planck data by numerically computing the equation of motion for inflaton f and using Mukhanov-Sasaki formalism for primordial spectrum. Inflation ends at Hubble slow-roll parameter epsilon(H)(1) = 1 or (a) over double dot = 0. Interestingly, we find an excellent practical bound on the inflaton excursion in the format a + b root r, where a is a tiny real number and b is at the order 1. To be consistent with QG/EFT and suppress the high-dimensional operators, we show that the concrete condition on inflaton excursion is Delta phi/M-Pl < 0.2 x root 10 similar or equal to 0.632. For n(s) = 0.9649, N-epsilon = 55, and Delta phi/M-Pl < 0.632, we predict that the tensor-to-scalar ratio is smaller than 0.0012 for such polynomial inflation to be consistent with QG/EFT. |
