|Title:||Knotty inflation and the dimensionality of spacetime|
Buniy, Roman V.
Kephart, Thomas W.
Rosa, João G.
|Keywords:||Dimensionality of spacetime|
|Abstract:||We suggest a structure for the vacuum comprised of a network of tightly knotted/linked flux tubes formed in a QCD-like cosmological phase transition and show that such a network can drive cosmological inflation. As the network can be topologically stable only in three space dimensions, this scenario provides a dynamical explanation for the existence of exactly three large spatial dimensions in our Universe.|
