1. Quantum gravity and Hubble tension

We investigate the relevance of quantum gravity during inflation to address the Hubble tension that arises from Planck 2018 and SH0ES data sets. We show that the effect of quantum gravity during inflation can increase the rate of change of H0, thereby accounting for a wide range of observed H0. Further, we show that due to the quantum gravity effect on inflation, the temperature at the onset of reheating can be lower than the standard case, causing delays in the reheating process. The role of quantum gravity is inevitable in settling the Hubble tension. The results of the present study may find use in resolving the Hubble tension, in validating inflationary model and quantum gravity.
