Hereafter we call φ as inflaton even if it is not responsible for inflation.

As for the initial condition, we have to make the inflaton energy density dominate the universe at first.
The oscillation effects on thermalization of the neutrinos in the universe with low reheating temperature
This model has the attractive feature that instead of having to fine-tune the inflaton potential, its flatness arises due to a dynamical mechanism, namely the slightly broken shift symmetry [33, 9] in the inflaton direction due to a not-self-dual 2-form flux on the D7 branes.
