Description

Warped compactifications provide a mechanism for generating a hierarchy of physical scales. Strongly warped regions (throats) are also ubiquitous in compactifications with stabilized moduli. In this talk, we describe some recent attempts to construct string inflationary models using warped throats, the CMB signatures of these models, and how differences in the shape of the extra dimensions can show up in the CMB data. We then turn to discuss the possibility of using the LHC to distinguish different warped extra dimensions.
