Tomi Koivisto (Nordita, Sweden)


A generalisation of the Weyl geometry, where the non-metricity and torsion are given by a single vector field, is presented. Taking into account the leading (quadratic) curvature correction in this geometry results in a one-parameter extension of the Starobinsky inflation, the so-called alpha-attractor model.
