A bstractNegative searches for permanent electric dipole moments (EDMs) heavily constrain models of baryogenesis utilising various higher dimensional charge and parity violating (CPV) operators. Using effective field theory, we create a model independent connection between these EDM constraints and the baryon asymmetry of the universe (BAU) produced during a strongly first order electroweak phase transition. The thermal aspects of the high scale physics driving the phase transition are… Expand

Electroweak baryogenesis and the standard model effective field theory
A bstractWe investigate electroweak baryogenesis within the framework of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory. The Standard Model Lagrangian is supplemented by dimension-six operators thatExpand
Electroweak Baryogenesis from Dark-Sector CP Violation.

Spontaneous CP-violating electroweak baryogenesis and dark matter from a complex singlet scalar
A bstractCP non-invariance is strongly limited by present experiments, while extra sources of CP-violation are needed for a successful baryogenesis. Motivated by those observations we consider aExpand
Dark CP violation and gauged lepton or baryon number for electroweak baryogenesis

Color breaking baryogenesis
We propose a scenario that generates the observed baryon asymmetry of the Universe through a multi--step phase transition in which SU(3) color symmetry is first broken and then restored. TwoExpand
