Abstract

Recently a new kind of quintessential inflation coming from the Lorentzian distribution has been introduced in [1,2]. The model leads to a very simple potential, which basically depends on two parameters, belonging to the class of α-attractors and depicting correctly the early and late time accelerations of our universe. The potential emphasizes a cosmological seesaw mechanism (CSSM) that produces a large inflationary vacuum energy in one side of the potential and a very small value of dark energy on the right hand side of the potential. Here we show that the model agrees with the recent observations and with the reheating constraints. Therefore the model gives a reasonable scenario beyond the standard ΛCDM that includes the inflationary epoch.
