Reconstruction of extended inflationary potentials for attractors [CL]

http://arxiv.org/abs/1703.02220


We give the procedure to reconstruct the extended inflationary potentials for general scalar-tensor theory of gravity and use the $\alpha$ attractor and the constant slow-roll model as examples to show how to reconstruct the class of extended inflationary potentials in the strong coupling limit. The class of extended inflationary potentials have the same attractor in the strong coupling limit, and the reconstructed extended inflationary potentials are consistent with the observational constraints. We also derive the condition on the coupling constant $\xi$ for satisfying the strong coupling.
