title = "End of multi-field inflation and the perturbation spectrum",

abstract = "We investigate the dynamics of inflation models driven by multiple, decoupled scalar fields and calculate the Hubble parameter and the amplitude of the lightest field at the end of inflation. The results are very simple and similar to those of the single field inflation, mainly depending on the underlying spectrum of the masses. The mass distribution is heavily constrained by the power spectrum of density perturbations P and the spectral index n s. The overall mass scale gives the amplitude of P and ns is affected by the number of fields and the spacing between masses in the distribution. The drop-out effect of the massive fields makes the perturbation spectrum typically redder than the single field inflation spectrum. We illustrate this using two different mass distributions.",
