On the origin of matter in the Universe

  title={On the origin of matter in the Universe},
  author={Pasquale di Bari},
The understanding of the physical processes that lead to the origin of matter in the early Universe, creating both an excess of matter over anti-matter and a dark matter abundance that survived until the present, is one of the most fascinating challenges in modern science. The problem cannot be addressed within our current description of fundamental physics and, therefore, it currently provides a very strong evidence of new physics. Solutions can either reside in a modification of the standard… Expand


Focus on the origin of matter
The origin of matter in the Universe is a fascinating cosmological puzzle that has triggered a formidable intellectual enterprise, started in 1967 with the prescient paper by Andrej Sakharov (1967Expand
Largest temperature of the radiation era and its cosmological implications
The thermal history of the universe before the epoch of nucleosynthesis is unknown. The maximum temperature in the radiation-dominated era, which we will refer to as the reheat temperature, may haveExpand
The Dawn of FIMP Dark Matter: A Review of Models and Constraints
We present an overview of scenarios where the observed Dark Matter (DM) abundance consists of Feebly Interacting Massive Particles (FIMPs), produced nonthermally by the so-called freeze-in mechanism.Expand
Improved limit on the electric dipole moment of the electron
An improved experimental limit on the electric dipole moment of the electron is presented, obtained by measuring the electron spin precession in a superposition of quantum states of electrons subjected to a huge intramolecular electric field with sensitivity an order of magnitude better than previous studies.

Phenomenology of the nMSSM from colliders to cosmology
Low energy supersymmetric models provide a solution to the hierarchy problem and also have the necessary ingredients to solve two of the most outstanding issues in cosmology: the origin of darkExpand
Dark Matter Candidates from Particle Physics and Methods of Detection
The identity of dark matter is a question of central importance in both astrophysics and particle physics. In the past, the leading particle candidates were cold and collisionless, and typicallyExpand
Mimetic Gravity: A Review of Recent Developments and Applications to Cosmology and Astrophysics
Mimetic gravity is a Weyl-symmetric extension of General Relativity, related to the latter by a singular disformal transformation, wherein the appearance of a dust-like perfect fluid can mimic coldExpand
Dark Matter, Baryogenesis and Neutrino Oscillations from Right Handed Neutrinos
We show that, leaving aside accelerated cosmic expansion, all experimental data in high energy physics that are commonly agreed to require physics beyond the Standard Model can be explained whenExpand
The baryogenesis window in the MSSM
Abstract Electroweak baryogenesis provides an attractive explanation of the origin of the matter–antimatter asymmetry that relies on physics at the weak scale and thus it is testable at present andExpand
Matter-antimatter accounting, thermodynamics, and black-hole radiation
We discuss several issues bearing on the observed asymmetry between matter and antimatter in the content of the universe, in particular, the possible role in this of Hawking radiation from blackExpand
