Mathematics and Applications of Branes in String and M-theory

Fluxbrane inflation (arXiv:1104.5016) is a recently proposed stringy realisation of D-term hybrid inflation, featuring some appealing phenomenological characteristics. In contrast to other brane inflation models, fluxbrane inflation has a naturally flat inflaton potential at leading order and thus does not rely on strong warping or an extremely anisotropic compact space. Additionally, the scenario contains a mechanism which allows one to avoid the clash with observational bounds due to cosmic string production rather easily. In my talk, I will present the most interesting aspects of the model and, furthermore, discuss recent progress and new challenges regarding moduli stabilisation (in the context of the LARGE volume scenario) as well as the impact of higher-order corrections on the flatness of the inflaton potential.
