      The cover page shows an event recorded with the CMS detector (LHC, CERN) in 2012 at a proton-proton centre of mass energy of 8 TeV. It shows characteristics expected from the decay of the standard model (SM) Higgs boson to a pair of photons (dashed yellow lines and green towers). The event could also be due to known SM background processes. (©: CERN, see http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/)

      Inflation and integrable one-field cosmologies embedded in rheonomic supergravity (pages 4–25)

      P. Fré and A.S. Sorin

      Article first published online: 14 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/prop.201300030

      It is shown that the new approach to the embedding of the inflationary potentials into supergravity, presented in a quite recent paper [11] of Ferrara, Kallosh, Linde and Porrati can be formulated within the framework of standard matter coupled supergravity, without the use of the new minimal auxiliary set and of conformal compensators. The only condition is the existence of a translational Peccei Quinn isometry of the scalar Kähler manifold. The authors suggest that this embedding strategy based on a nilpotent gauging amounts to a profound Copernican Revolution.

      Axial symmetric Kähler manifolds, the D-map of inflaton potentials and the Picard-Fuchs equation (pages 26–77)

      P. Fré and A.S. Sorin

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/prop.201300031

      In this paper the authors provide a definition of the D-map is provided, namely of the mathematical construction implicitly utilized by supergravity that associates an axial symmetric Kähler surface to every positive definite potential function V (φ). The properties of the D-map are discussed in general. Then the D-map is applied to the list of integrable cosmological potentials classified by us in a previous publication with A. Sagnotti. Several interesting geometrical and analytical properties of the manifolds in the image of this D-map are discovered and illustrated.
