Calculations of Inflaton Decays and Reheating: with Applications to No-Scale Inflation Models / Ellis, John ; Garcia, Marcos A G ; Nanopoulos, Dimitri V ; Olive, Keith A
We discuss inflaton decays and reheating in no-scale Starobinsky-like models of inflation, calculating the effective equation-of-state parameter, $w$, during the epoch of inflaton decay, the reheating temperature, $T_{\rm reh}$, and the number of inflationary e-folds, $N_*$, comparing analytical approximations with numerical calculations.
