In the Randall-Sundrum model where the radion is stabilized by a Goldberger-Wise (GW) potential there is a supercooled transition from a deconfined to a confined phase at temperatures orders of magnitude below the typical Standard Model critical temperature. When the Higgs is localized at the IR brane the electroweak phase transition is delayed and becomes a strong first-order one where the Universe expands by a few e-folds. This generates the possibility of having the out-of-equilibrium…

QCD-induced electroweak phase transition

A bstractPhase transitions associated with nearly conformal dynamics are known to lead to significant supercooling. A notorious example is the phase transition in Randall-Sundrum models or their CFT

Avoided deconfinement in Randall-Sundrum models

We study first order phase transitions in Randall-Sundrum models in the early universe dual to confinement in large-N gauge theories. The transition rate to the confined phase is suppressed by a

Multistep strongly first order phase transitions from new fermions at the TeV scale

In spite of the vast literature on the subject of first order Electroweak Phase Transitions (EWPTs), which can provide the necessary conditions for generating the Baryon Asymmetry in the Universe,

On the maximal strength of a first-order electroweak phase transition and its gravitational wave signal

What is the maximum possible strength of a first-order electroweak phase transition and the resulting gravitational wave (GW) signal? While naively one might expect that supercooling could increase

Rapid holographic phase transition with brane-localized curvature

We study the finite-temperature properties of the Randall-Sundrum model in the presence of brane-localized curvature. At high temperature, as dictated by AdS/CFT, the theory is in a confined phase

Natural cold baryogenesis from strongly interacting electroweak symmetry breaking

The mechanism of "cold electroweak baryogenesis" has been so far unpopular because its proposal has relied on the ad-hoc assumption of a period of hybrid inflation at the electroweak scale with the

Status of Electroweak Baryogenesis in Minimal Composite Higgs

: We present an update on the status of electroweak baryogenesis in minimal composite Higgs models. The particularity of this framework is that the electroweak phase transition can proceed

A more attractive scheme for radion stabilization and supercooled phase transition

We propose a new radion stabilization mechanism in the Randall-Sundrum spacetime, introducing a bulk SU( N H ) gauge field which confines at a TeV scale. It turns out that the radion is stabilized by

A more attractive scheme for radion stabilization and supercooled phase transition

We propose a new radion stabilization mechanism in the Randall-Sundrum spacetime, introducing a bulk SU(NH) gauge field which confines at a TeV scale. It turns out that the radion is stabilized by

Signals of the electroweak phase transition at colliders and gravitational wave observatories

A bstractIf the electroweak phase transition (EWPT) is of strongly first order due to higher dimensional operators, the scale of new physics generating them is at the TeV scale or below. In this case

Electroweak Baryogenesis and Higgs Physics

Electroweak Baryogenesis is a particularly attractive theoretical scenario, since it relies on physics which can be tested at present high energy collider facilities. Within the Standard Model, it

Baryon Asymmetry of the Universe in Standard Electroweak Theory

Baryogenesis from the Kobayashi-Maskawa phase.

The Froggatt-Nielsen mechanism provides a plausible framework where the Yukawa couplings could all be of order 1 at that time, and settle to their present values before nucleo-synthesis, and reveals a loophole in the commonly held view that the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism cannot be the dominant source of CP violation to play a role in baryogenesis.

The generality of the arguments rules out any mechanism of electroweak baryogenesis that does not make use of a new source of [ital CP] violation and concludes the QCD damping effects reduce the asymmetry produced to a negligible amount.
