Cosmological Structure Formation Creates Large-Scale Magnetic Fields

This paper examines the generation of seed magnetic fields due to the growth of cosmological perturbations. In the radiation era, different rates of scattering from photons induce local differences

Constraints on the electrical charge asymmetry of the universe

We use the isotropy of the cosmic microwave background to place stringent constraints on a possible electrical charge asymmetry of the universe. We find the excess charge per baryon to be qe−p<10−26e

Isotropic charged cosmologies in infrared-modified electrodynamics

It has long been known that the covariant formulation of quantum electrodynamics conflicts with the local description of states in the charged sector. Some of the solutions to this problem amount to

Cosmological consequences of MSSM flat directions

Electrodynamics at non-zero temperature, chemical potential and Bose condensate

Electrodynamics of charged scalar bosons and spin 1/2 fermions is studied at non-zero temperature, chemical potentials, and possible Bose condensate of the charged scalars. Debye screening length,

Electrodynamics at non-zero temperature, chemical potential and Bose condensate

Electrodynamics of charged scalar bosons and spin 1/2 fermions is studied at non-zero temperature, chemical potentials, and possible Bose condensate of the charged scalars. Debye screening length,

Charge Tempered Cosmological Model

The main purpose of this work is to obtain the metric of a Charge Tempered Cosmological Model, a slightly modified Standard Cosmological Model by a small excess of charge density, distributed

Electrodynamics on cosmological scales

Maxwell’s equations cannot describe a homogeneous and isotropic universe with a uniformly distributed net charge, because the electromagnetic field tensor in such a universe must be vanishing

Cosmological perturbations and their effects on the universe: from inflation to acceleration

The universe is, on the largest scales, nearly perfectly isotropic and homogeneous. This degree of smoothness was accentuated in the past, when density inhomogeneities departed from perfect

A new kind of parity and Loschmidt's paradox

The conventional parity operation consists of the exchange of ―right‖ and ―left‖, hence its alternative name, ―mirror inversion‖, since it is the one performed by common plane mirrors. Such

Big bang nucleosynthesis and physics beyond the standard model

The Hubble expansion of galaxies, the 2.73 K black-body radiation background and the cosmic abundances of the light elements argue for a hot, dense origin of the universe - the standard big bang

Can the universe be charged?

We point out a possibility of temporal charge nonconservation in cosmological models based on more-dimensional theories a l\`a Kaluza-Klein. A net excess charge may then have been created before the

Big bang nucleosynthesis revisited

We-ccmpte the homogeneous big-bang nucleosynthesis yields of D, SHe, 'He, and 'Li taking into account recent measurements of the neutron mean-life as well as updates of several nuclear reaction rates

Mini-Charge Non-Conservation in SU(3)c ×SU(2)L ×U(1)Y Models

Models of spontaneously breaking of electric charge symmetry are constructed. The charge symmetry is broken by the mini-charged Higgs bosons which couple to fermions. The characteristic feature of

Cosmology of a charged universe.

The Proca generalization of electrodynamics admits the possibility that the universe could possess a net electric charge uniformly distributed throughout space, while possessing no electric field. A

ELECTRIC CHARGE NONCONSERVATION AND MINICHARGED PARTICLES—PHENOMENOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS

We discuss constraints on electric charge nonconservation and minicharged particles implied by terrestrial, astrophysical and cosmological considerations. We also suggest possible methods for

Neutrino Oscillations in Matter

The effect of coherent forward scattering must be taken into account when considering the oscillations of neutrinos traveling through matter. In particular, for the case of massless neutrinos for

The early Universe

In the past few years one of the most exciting areas of research in physics has been the interdisciplinary field of cosmology and particle physics. The NSF's Institute for Theoretical Physics in

Is the electric charge conserved in brane world

We discuss whether electric charge conservation may not hold in four-dimensional world in models with infinite extra dimensions, i.e., whether escape of charged particles from our brane is consistent
