Although the origin of matter-antimatter asymmetry remains unknown, continuing advances in theory and improved experimental limits have ruled out some scenarios for baryogenesis, for example, sphaleron baryogenesis at the electroweak phase transition in the Standard Model. At the same time, the success of cosmological inflation and the prospects for discovering supersymmetry at the Large Hadron Collider have put some other models in sharper focus. We review the current state of our…

Origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe

The origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe has been a long unsolved problem in cosmology and particle physics. Although it is challenging to solve this problem, our understanding

MATTER–ANTIMATTER ASYMMETRY GENERATED AT LOW TEMPERATURES

We explore the possibility of having baryogenesis at temperatures below any dilution mechanism, such as inflation or sphaleron effects at the electroweak transition. We find that large infrared CPT

Theories relating baryon asymmetry and dark matter

The nature of dark matter and the origin of the baryon asymmetry are two of the deepest mysteries of modern particle physics. In the absence of hints regarding a possible solution to these mysteries,

Theories relating baryon asymmetry and dark matter Mini review

The nature of dark matter and the origin of the baryon asymmetry are two of the deepest mysteries of modern particle physics. In the absence of hints regarding a possible solution to these mysteries,

Matter–antimatter asymmetry induced by a running vacuum coupling

We show that a CP-violating interaction induced by a derivative coupling between the running vacuum and a non-conserving baryon current may dynamically break CPT and trigger baryogenesis through an

Baryon asymmetry from electroweak tachyonic preheating

We consider a scenario in which the baryon asymmetry was created in the early universe during a cold electroweak transition. The spinodal instability of the Higgs field caused by a rapid change of

CP violations in the Universe

The origin of the asymmetry between matter and antimatter that is evident in our part of the Universe is one of the open questions in cosmology, because the CPT symmetry between matter and antimatter

ASPECTS OF MATTER–ANTIMATTER ASYMMETRY AND STATES FOR ASTROPHYSICS AND COSMOLOGY (AND VERY HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES PHYSICS)

Matter–antimatter asymmetry observed in our Universe is discussed with attention to different effects which are (or may be) present in the phase diagram of matter. Some implications which can

Inflation, baryogenesis and gravitino dark matter at ultra low reheat temperatures

It is quite possible that the reheat temperature of the Universe is extremely low close to the scale of big bang nucleosynthesis, i.e. TR∼1–10 MeV. At such low reheat temperatures generating matter,

Cosmological Matter-antimatter Asymmetry

The observed matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe is a big puzzle in particle physics and cosmology. Although the hot Big Bang model of cosmology is very successful in predicting the cosmic

Possible Origin of Antimatter Regions in the Baryon Dominated Universe

We discuss the evolution of U(1) symmetric scalar field at the inflation epoch with a pseudo Nambu-Goldstone tilt revealing after the end of exponential expansion of the Universe. The U(1) symmetry

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

Hybrid inflation and baryogenesis at the TeV scale

We consider the construction of inverted hybrid inflation models in which the vacuum energy during inflation is on the TeV scale, and the inflaton couples to the Higgs field. Such models are of

Non-equilibrium electroweak baryogenesis from preheating after inflation

We present a novel scenario for baryogenesis in a hybrid inflation model at the electroweak scale, in which the standard model Higgs field triggers the end of inflation. One of the conditions for
