## 4 Conclusions and discussions

We have investigated whether inflation in the early universe can be induced by an extra component of a 5d U(1) gauge field coupled to fermions in the RS warped spacetime or not. Imposing CBCs on fields involved in inflation, we have shown that the one-loop effective potential for a Wilson line phase obtained by quantum corrections can behave as an inflaton potential by finding parameter regions consistent with Planck 2018 results. Our model shares basic properties with higher-dimensional models on a flat spacetime, e.g., a potential is generated radiatively, and is robust owing to the gauge symmetry, and then a model has a predictability for physics on inflation.

The remaining issues and future prospects are as follows.

There is a fine-tuning problem that the (initial) vaules of Ď† and other parameters should be chosen in order to make Ď† as an inflaton work well. It would be better if they are determined from a fundamental theory. Or we would have to rely on the anthropic principle in the framework of multiverse.

It is necessary to consider contributions of a radion and/or modulus in order to identify an inflaton. In concrete, it is essential to study their stabilization and how inflation can be realized in a system with such several scalar fields including a Wilson line phase on the RS warped background.

It would be wonderful to construct a more realistic higher-dimensional gauge theory which solves riddles of particle physics and cosmology on a similar footing. More specifically, it would be fantastic that, in a system governed by the gauge principle, there are several Wilson line phases originated from extra components of gauge bosons, which behave as Higgs boson, an inflaton, a dark matter and so forth. A top-down approach would be useful to construct such a model in a more unified form. Superstring theory, for instance, provides many scalar and vector fields, and possesses many candidates of Higgs boson, an inflaton, a dark matter and so on. Hence, it is intriguing to investigate how a 5d effective theory on the warped geometry can be realized in such a top-down framework.
