  • In the standard hot big bang theory, when the Universe was about 1 10 �s old, the cosmological matter is conjectured to undergo Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) phase transition(s) from quark matter to hadrons. In the present work, we study the cosmological quark-hadron phase transition in two different physical scenarios. First, by assuming that the phase transition would be described by an effective nucleation theory (prompt first-order phase transition), we analyze the evolution of the relevant… CONTINUE READING
