概要

(ABSTRACT)

We propose a novel method to probe primordial gravitational waves by means of primordial black holes (PBHs). When the amplitude of primordial tensor perturbations on comoving scales much smaller than those relevant to Cosmic Microwave Background is very large, it induces scalar perturbations due to second-order effects substantially. If the amplitude of resultant scalar perturbations becomes too large, then PBHs are overproduced to a level that is inconsistent with a variety of existing observations constraining their abundance. This leads to upper bounds on the amplitude of initial tensor perturbations on super-horizon scales. The resultant PBH upper bounds turn out be tighter than other bounds obtained from Big Bang Nucleosynthesis and Cosmic Microwave Background.
