Electroweak Baryogenesis

  title={Electroweak Baryogenesis},
  author={Mark Trodden},
We demonstrate the viability of electroweak baryogenesis scenarios in which the necessary departure from equilibrium is realized by the evolution of a network of topological defects. We consider several effective models of TeV physics, each addressing a fundamental particle physics problem, and in which the conditions necessary for defect-mediated electroweak baryogenesis are naturally satisfied. In each case we compare the strength of the model with that expected from scenarios in which…

Baryogenesis below the electroweak scale

We propose a new alternative for baryogenesis which resolves a number of the problems associated with GUT and electroweak scenarios, and which may allow baryogenesis even in modest extensions of the

Electroweak baryogenesis from temperature-varying couplings

Abstract The fundamental couplings of the Standard Model are known to vary as a function of energy scale through the Renormalisation Group (RG), and have been measured at the electroweak scale at

Electroweak Baryogenesis from Exotic Electroweak Symmetry Breaking

We investigate scenarios in which electroweak baryogenesis can occur during an exotic stage of electroweak symmetry breaking in the early Universe. This transition is driven by the expectation value

Towards Reviving Electroweak Baryogenesis with a Fourth Generation

Electroweak baryogenesis is an attractive scenario for explaining the baryon asymmetry of the universe. However, it does not work within the standard model due to two reasons: (1) the strength of CP

Electroweak Baryogenesis in the Exceptional Supersymmetric Standard Model

We study electroweak baryogenesis in the E6 inspired exceptional supersymmetric standard model (E6SSM). The relaxation coefficients driven by singlinos and the new gaugino as well as the transport

Effective field theory and electroweak baryogenesis in the singlet-extended Standard Model

A bstractElectroweak baryogenesis is a simple and attractive candidate mechanism for generating the observed baryon asymmetry in the Universe. Its viability is sometimes investigated in terms of an

Electroweak Baryogenesis in Extensions of the Standard Model

We investigate the generation of the baryon asymmetry in two extensions of the Standard Model; these are the SM with a low cut-off and the two-Higgs-doublet model. Analyzing the thermal potential in

Quantum transport and electroweak baryogenesis

We review the mechanism of electroweak baryogenesis. Our focus is on the derivation of quantum transport equations from first principles within the Schwinger–Keldysh formalism. We emphasize the

String-mediated electroweak baryogenesis: A critical analysis

We study the scenario of electroweak baryogenesis mediated by nonsuperconducting cosmic strings. This idea relies upon electroweak symmetry being restored in a region around the core of the

Electroweak Baryogenesis from a Classical Force.

A new effect that produces baryons at a first order electroweak phase transition when there is a {ital CP}-violating field present on propagating bubble walls is described.

More about Electroweak Baryogenesis in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model

We compute the baryon asymmetry generated at the electroweak phase transition by the Higgs scalar sector of the minimal supersymmetric standard model. Because of large enhancement effects from low

Turning around the sphaleron bound: Electroweak baryogenesis in an alternative post-inflationary cosmology

The usual sphaleron bound and the statement of the impossibility of baryon production at a second order phase transition or analytic cross-over are reformulated in the first part of the paper as
