dc.description.abstract We propose a new scenario to produce the superheavy dark matter based on the inflationary universe. In our scenario, the inflaton couples to both a boson and a stable fermion. Although the fermion is produced by the inflaton decay after inflation, almost energy density of the inflaton is transmitted into the radiation by parametric resonance which causes the explosively copious production of the boson. We show that the fermion produced by the inflaton decay can be the superheavy dark matter, whose abundance in the present universe coincides with the critical density. We also present two explicit models as examples in which our scenario can be realized. One is the softly broken supersymmetric theory. The other is the "singlet majoron model" with an assumed neutrino mass matrix. The latter example can simultaneously explain the neutrino oscillation data and the observed baryon asymmetry in the present universe through the leptogenesis scenario. en_US
