Abstract

In this talk we introduce an extension of the inflationary paradigm to include Planck scale physics, using techniques from loop quantum cosmology. We address open gravitational issues both for the background geometry and perturbations. This approach provides examples of effects that may have observational implications, and thus provide a window to test the basic quantum gravity principles employed.
