#### B-mode Targets

Published 2019-06-11Version 1

The CMB-S4 Science Book, Astro2020 Science White Paper on gravitational waves, and PICO report contain an extensive discussion of many ongoing and planned efforts in the search for gravitational waved produced by inflation. Here we give a short executive summary of the results obtained in our recent papers, which specify the simplest available inflationary models providing physically motivated targets for these searches. Our conclusions are specific for the $10^{-3} \lesssim r \lesssim 10^{-2}$ range, where we present the B-mode benchmarks of the U-duality symmetric class of $\alpha$-attractors, and for $r \lesssim 10^{-3}$, where we present B-mode targets, for which the future precision measurements of $n_s$ will be decisive.
