Baryogenesis at the Electroweak Scale
Anders Tranberg, University of Stavanger
The asymmetry between matter and antimatter is still an unsolved mystery of astroparticle physics. Presumably, the asymmetry was generated during a strong phase transition at or before the electroweak symmetry breaking transition in the Early Universe. Electroweak baryogenesis as a scenario has a long and illustrious history of trial and not-quite-success. I will present a related, competing model ("Cold" electroweak baryogenesis), and demonstrate how one may numerically compute and actual number for the generated asymmetry from first principles.
