Séminaire de Physique ThéoriqueWhen cosmological inflation faces phenomenology : From SUSY breaking to dark matter production

In this talk I will introduce explicit constructions of inflation models together with low energy phenomenology in the context of gauge mediation and dark matter production scenarios. I will first introduce what are the main motivations for cosmological inflation, how it can be described in a supergravity framework and how cosmological constraints can be confronted to low energy constraints on supersymmetry breaking. I will furthermore introduce the new idea of an inflation portal for dark matter production and see how inflation can play a key role in dark matter phenomenology.
