An overview of baryogenesis in the early Universe is presented. The standard big bang model including big bang nucleosynthesis and inflation is breifly reviewed. Three basic models for baryogenesis… Expand

A model is presented to show that an arbitrarily small CP violation is sufficient to generate a baryon excess in non-equilibrium baryon-number-violating reactions occurring at very early stages of… Expand

The various stages in the evolution of the universe from approximately 0.0001 sec to approximately more than 100,000 years are discussed. The use of quantum gravity, the Kaluza (1921) and Klein… Expand

I suggest that the dominance of matter over antimatter in the present universe is a consequence of baryon-number--nonconserving reactions in the very early fireball. Unified gauge theories of weak,… Expand

General formulas are given for the mean net baryon number produced in the decay of superheavy scalar or vector bosons. These results are used to make rough numerical estimates of the cosmological… Expand

The restrictions on elementary particle properties which can be derived from cosmological and astrophysical data are considered. The inverse relations between micro- and macrophysics are also… Expand

Departures from thermal equilibrium which are likely to occur in an expanding universe allow the production of an appreciable net baryon density by processes which violate baryon-number conservation.… Expand
