Abstract

The possibility of realization of a curvaton scenario is studied in a theory in which two dilatons are introduced along with coupling to the scalar curvature. It is shown that when two dilatons have an approximate O(2) symmetric coupling, a scalar field playing the role of the curvaton may exist in the framework of this theory without introducing any other scalar field for the curvaton. Thus the curvaton scenario can be realized, and in the simple version of the curvaton scenario in which the curvaton potential is quadratic, the curvature perturbation having an enough amplitude and a nearly scale-invariant spectrum suggested by observations obtained from WMAP could be generated.
