Fluctuation-dissipation dynamics in the early universe

Event description

This workshop will examine the application of dissipation and fluctuation dynamics in the early Universe. It will include applications in warm inflation, cosmic phase transitions and in the radiation dominated era. The workshop will allow completion of nongaussian signatures from warm inflation. This subject was extensively discussed in the first Planck data release and their is interest from the collaboration to further discuss development in this topic. Warm inflation also showed from first principles models consistency with the Planck inflation results. We will be examining these results in greater detail at the workshop. The success of this work has led to examination of this dynamics to other areas of cosmology. We are pursuing several seminal directions and this workshop will allow opportunity for extensive discussion and sharing of ideas.
