title = "Non-Riemannian volume elements dynamically generate inflation",

abstract = "Our primary objective is the formulation of a plausible cosmological inflationary model entirely in terms of a pure modified gravity without any a priori matter couplings within the formalism of non-Riemannian spacetime volume elements. The non-Riemannian volume elements dynamically create in the physical Einstein frame a canonical scalar matter field and produce a non-trivial inflationary scalar potential with a large flat region and a low-lying stable minimum corresponding to the late universe stage. This dynamically generated inflationary potential is a substantial generalization of the classic Starobinsky potential. Our model predicts scalar power spectral index and tensor to scalar ratio in accordance with the available observational data.",
