Abstract

An inflationary scenario that leads to Ω 0 < 1 today is presented. An epoch of ‘old’ inflation during which the smoothness and horizon problems are solved is followed by a shortened epoch of ‘new’ inflation. Old inflation exits through the nucleation of a single bubble, leading to negative spatial curvature on slices of constant cosmic time. We calculate the spectrum of density perturbations in such a scenario.
