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

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

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
