Abstract : We propose a model of large-field inflation based on higher-dimensional gauge theory, where the extra dimensions are a mixture of continuous and discrete ones. The inflaton is a component of the gauge field in a continuous extra dimension, while the discrete extra dimensions enhance the field range of the inflaton and enable large-field inflation.
