Description

We discuss the possible effects that primordial magnetic fields and finite temperatures can have on the warm inflation scenario. This work is motivated by two considerations: first, In view of the accumulating observational evidence for their presence on all scales, the idea of a truly primordial origin of cosmic magnetism gains strength; second, the recent emergence of inflationary models where the inflaton is not assumed to be isolated but instead it is taken as an interacting field during the whole inflationary process.
