We study how bubbles grow after the initial nucleation event in generic first-order cosmological phase transitions characterized by the values of the latent heat $L$, interface tension $\ensuremath{\sigma}$, and correlation length $\ensuremath{\xi}$, and driven by a scalar order parameter $\ensuremath{\varphi}$. Equations coupling $\ensuremath{\varphi}(t,\mathbf{x})$ and the fluid variables $\mathbf{v}(t,\mathbf{x})$, $T(t,\mathbf{x})$ and depending on a dissipative constant $\ensuremath{\Gamma… Expand

Gravitational waves from deflagration bubbles in first-order phase transitions
The walls of bubbles in a first-order phase transition can propagate either as detonations, with a velocity larger than the speed of sound, or deflagrations, which are subsonic. We calculate theExpand
Bubble nucleation and growth in slow cosmological phase transitions
Abstract We study the dynamics of cosmological phase transitions in the case of small velocities of bubble walls, v w 0.1 . We discuss the conditions in which this scenario arises in a physicalExpand
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 wallExpand
Bubble wall velocity in the minimal supersymmetric light stop scenario
We build on existing calculations of the wall velocity of the expanding bubbles of the broken symmetry phase in a first-order electroweak phase transition within the light stop scenario (LSS) of theExpand
Spherical and non-spherical bubbles in cosmological phase transitions
Abstract The cosmological remnants of a first-order phase transition generally depend on the perturbations that the walls of expanding bubbles originate in the plasma. Several of the formationExpand
First-order cosmological phase transitions in the radiation dominated era
We consider first-order phase transitions of the Universe in the radiation-dominated era. We argue that in general the velocity of interfaces is non-relativistic due to the interaction with theExpand
Gravitational waves from the electroweak phase transition
We study the generation of gravitational waves in the electroweak phase transition. We consider a few extensions of the Standard Model, namely, the addition of scalar singlets, the minimalExpand
Quark-hadron phase transition in Brans-Dicke brane gravity
A standard picture in cosmology has been emerging over the past decade in which a phase transition, associated with chiral symmetry breaking after the electroweak transition, has occurred atExpand
Gravitational waves from first order phase transitions during inflation
We study the production, spectrum, and detectability of gravitational waves in models of the early Universe where first order phase transitions occur during inflation. We consider all relevantExpand
Formation and collapse of false vacuum bubbles in relativistic heavy-ion collisions
Abstract It is possible that under certain situations, in a relativistic heavy-ion collision, partons may expand out forming a shell like structure. We analyze the process of hadronization in such aExpand
