There are theoretical speculations that the top quark may have different properties from that predicted by the standard model. We use an effective Lagrangian technique to model such a nonstandard top quark scenario. We parametrize the [ital CP]-violating interactions of the top quark with the bubble wall in terms of an effective top quark Yukawa coupling, then study its effects on electroweak baryogenesis. We also discuss the phenomenology of such an effective Yukawa coupling in low and high… 
Top transport in electroweak baryogenesis
In non-supersymmetric models of electroweak baryogenesis the top quark plays a crucial role. Its CP-violating source term can be calculated in the WKB approximation. We investigate the numerical
The Baryon asymmetry in the Standard Model with a low cut-off
We study the generation of the baryon asymmetry in a variant of the standard model, where the Higgs field is stabilized by a dimension-six interaction. Analyzing the one-loop potential, we find a
Electroweak Baryogenesis in Extensions of the Standard Model
We investigate the generation of the baryon asymmetry in two extensions of the Standard Model; these are the SM with a low cut-off and the two-Higgs-doublet model. Analyzing the thermal potential in
Testing the electroweak phase transition in scalar extension models at lepton colliders
We study the electroweak phase transition in three scalar extension models beyond the Standard Model. Assuming new scalars are decoupled at some heavy scale, we use the covariant derivative expansion
Source terms for electroweak baryogenesis in the vev-insertion approximation beyond leading order
In electroweak baryogenesis the baryon asymmetry of the universe is created during the electroweak phase transition. The quantum transport equations governing the dynamics of the plasma particles can
Electroweak phase transition in an extension of the standard model with a real Higgs singlet
The Higgs potential of the standard model with an additional real Higgs singlet is studied in order to examine if it may allow the strongly first-order electroweak phase transition. It is found that
Analysis of the Phase Structure in Extended Higgs Models
We study the generation of the baryon asymmetry in the context of electroweak baryogenesis in two different extensions of the Standard Model. First, we consider an effective theory, in which the
An efficient approach to electroweak bubble velocities
Extensions of the Standard Model are being considered as viable settings for a first-order electroweak phase transition which satisfy Sakharov's three conditions for the generation of the baryon
Angular Correlations in Associated Production of Single Top and Higgs with and without Anomalous Wtb Couplings
We study the angular correlation and the amount of top quark polarization in the production of a higgs boson in association with a single top quark in the t−channel at the LHC. We also study the


Recent Developments in Gauge Theories
Almost all theories of fundamental interactions are nowadays based on the gauge concept. Starting with the historical example of quantum electrodynamics, we have been led to the successful unified
