Dr Alexey Koshelev


I will describe the stringy motivated non-local gravity and discuss the Starobinsky inflation in this model, the most attractive inflationary scenario from a phenomenological point of view. Computation of scalar and tensor spectral tilts will be discussed and a comparison to the existing data will be made. As an upshot the results show that the model is well-behaved and exhibits similarities with the local counterpart.
