We consider Yukawa theory in which the fermion mass is induced by a Higgs like scalar. In our model the fermion mass exhibits a temporal dependence, which naturally occurs in the early Universe setting. Assuming that the complex fermion mass changes as a tanh-kink, we construct an exact, helicity conserving, CP-violating solution for the positive and negative frequency fermionic mode functions, which is valid both in the case of weak and strong CP violation. Using this solution we then study…

Exact solutions of a Dirac equation with a varying CP-violating mass profile and coherent quasiparticle approximation

In this master’s thesis the phase space structure of a Wightman function is studied for a temporally varying background. First we introduce coherent quasiparticle approximation (cQPA), an

Majorana propagator on de Sitter space

We study the dynamics of Majorana fermions in an expanding de Sitter space and to that aim, by making use of the method of mode sums, we construct the vacuum Feynman propagator for Majorana fermions

Field-theoretic derivation of bubble-wall force

We derive a general quantum field theoretic formula for the force acting on expanding bubbles of a first order phase transition in the early Universe setting. In the thermodynamic limit the force is

Gauge Invariance and Frame Independence in Cosmology

In this thesis the mathematical formulation of cosmological perturbations is studied. First we discuss the gauge problem of general relativity: perturbations of the metric and matter fields in an

Quantum transport and the phase space structure of the Wightman functions

We study the phase space structure of exact quantum Wightman functions in spatially homogeneous, temporally varying systems. In addition to the usual mass shells, the Wightman functions display

Electroweak baryogenesis at high bubble wall velocities

It is widely believed that electroweak baryogenesis should be suppressed in strong phase transitions with fast-moving bubble walls, but this effect has never been quantitatively studied. We rederive

The Standard Model in the framework of the combined spacetime 4-manifold of particles and waves-a heuristic introduction

This paper represents a culmination of our previous work. We started with the hypothesis of a pair of independent Einstein Field Equations responsible for two spacetime 4-manifolds M[1] and M[2],

Standard Model CP-violation and Baryon asymmetry

In CP arguments, we argue against a Standard Model explanation of the baryon asymmetry of the universe in the presence of a first order phase transition. A CP-asymmetry is found in the reflection

Baryon asymmetry of the Universe in the standard model.

The present work makes it clear that the minimal standard model cannot be discounted as a contender for explaining this phenomenon, and a quantitative calculation of the asymmetry in a one-dimensional approximation agrees with the observed value.

Nonlocal electroweak baryogenesis. I. Thin wall regime.

This paper gives an analytic treatment of quantum mechanical reflection in the thin wall regime, in which interactions with the plasma can be neglected as a particle propagates across the wall, and calculates the baryon asymmetry for various parameter ranges and concludes that asymmetries comparable with observations can be generated.

Fermion Scattering off a CP-Violating Electroweak BubbleWall II

By treating CP-violating interaction as a perturbative term, we solved in a previous paper the Dirac equation in the background of electroweak bubble wall, and obtained the transmission and

Nonlocal electroweak baryogenesis. II. The classical regime.

We investigate baryogenesis at a first-order electroweak phase transition in the presence of a CP-violating condensate on the bubble walls, in the regime in which the bubble walls are ``thick,'' in

Supersymmetric electroweak baryogenesis

We re-examine the generation of the baryon asymmetry in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) during the electroweak phase transition. We find that the dominant source for baryogenesis
