We study the hydrodynamics of bubble expansion in cosmological first-order phase transition in the Friedmann-Lemaˆıtre- Robertson-Walker (FLRW) background with probe limit. Different from previous studies for fast first-order phase transition in flat background, we find that, for slow first-order phase transition in FLRW background with a given peculiar velocity of the bubble wall, the efficiency factor of energy transfer into bulk motion of thermal fluid is significantly reduced, thus… 
Friction pressure on relativistic bubble walls
Abstract During a cosmological first-order phase transition, particles of the plasma crossing the bubble walls can radiate a gauge boson. The resulting pressure cannot be computed perturbatively for
Phase transitions in an expanding universe: stochastic gravitational waves in standard and non-standard histories
We undertake a careful analysis of stochastic gravitational wave production from cosmological phase transitions in an expanding universe, studying both a standard radiation as well as a matter
Gravitational waves produced by compressible MHD turbulence from cosmological phase transitions
We calculate the gravitational wave spectrum produced by magneto-hydrodynamic turbulence in a first order phase transitions. We focus in particular on the role of decorrelation of incompressible
The Gravitational-wave physics II: Progress
It has been a half-decade since the first direct detection of gravitational waves, which signifies the coming of the era of the gravitational-wave astronomy and gravitational-wave cosmology. The
Gravitational Waves and Extra Dimensions: A Short Review
We give a brief review on the recent development of gravitational waves in extra-dimensional theories of gravity. Studying extra-dimensional theories with gravitational waves provides a new way to
Taiji program: Gravitational-wave sources
We review potential low-frequency gravitational-wave sources, which are expected to be detected by Taiji, a Chinese space-based gravitational-wave detector, estimate the detection rates of these


Energy budget of cosmological first-order phase transitions
The study of the hydrodynamics of bubble growth in first-order phase transitions is very relevant for electroweak baryogenesis, as the baryon asymmetry depends sensitively on the bubble wall
Real-Time History of the Cosmological Electroweak Phase Transition.
The macroscopic real-time history of the cosmological electroweak phase transition is studied, finding that collisions with compression waves may make the bubble walls oscillate, and that reheating to T-c generically takes place.
Gravitational waves from the sound of a first order phase transition.
It is found that the compression waves in the fluid continue to be a source of GWs long after the bubbles have merged, a new effect not taken properly into account in previous modeling of the GW source.
Velocity of electroweak bubble walls
Lower bound on the electroweak wall velocity from hydrodynamic instability
The subsonic expansion of bubbles in a strongly first-order electroweak phase transition is a convenient scenario for electroweak baryogenesis. For most extensions of the Standard Model, stationary
Magnetohydrodynamic effects of a first-order cosmological phase transition
The author analyzes the spectrum, amplitude, and evolution of a tangled primeval magnetic field generated by macroscopic dynamo activity arising during a first-order phase transition in the early
Stability of cosmological deflagration fronts
In a cosmological first-order phase transition, bubbles of the stable phase nucleate and expand in the supercooled metastable phase. In many cases, the growth of bubbles reaches a stationary state,
Gravitational Radiation from First-Order Phase Transitions
It is believed that first-order phase transitions at or around the GUT scale will produce high-frequency gravitational radiation. This radiation is a consequence of the collisions and coalescence of
Abundance of Primordial Holes Produced by Cosmological First-Order Phase Transition
One important prediction of a cosmological model based on grand unified theories is the production of primordial black holes and wormholes through a first· order phase transition. In this paper we
