  Baryogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Baryogenesis is the generic designation for the physical processes that generate matter (more specifically, a class of fundamental particle called baryon) from an otherwise matter-empty state (such as it is generally believed to be the state of the Universe at its onset, the so-called Big Bang).
The fundamental difference between baryogenesis theories is the description of the interaction between fundamental particles.
The next step after baryogenesis, is the much better understood nucleosynthesis, the forming of atomic nuclei.

 Big Bang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At a certain temperature, by an as-yet-unknown transition called baryogenesis, the quarks and gluons combined into baryons such as protons and neutrons, somehow producing the observed asymmetry between matter and antimatter.
The Big Bang theory predicted the existence of the cosmic microwave background radiation or CMB which is composed of photons emitted during baryogenesis.
Because the early universe was in thermal equilibrium, the temperature of the radiation and the plasma were equal until the plasma recombined.

In these type of scenarios the Universe undergoes a first order phase transition at the electroweak scale in which bubbles of the Higgs phase (in which particles are massive) nucleate in the sea of the hot phase (massless particles).
Baryogenesis is effective at the front of the growing bubbles.
Another attractive class of baryogenesis scenarios involves the physics of grand unification of fundamental forces, and it is typically based on out-of-equilibrium decays of heavy particles that violate either lepton or baryon numbers.

c - Baryogenesis occurred at the Electroweak Phase Transition (EWPT).
Thermal nonequilibrium is achieved during first-order phase transitions in the cooling early universe, such as the EWPT (at T = 100 GeV or so).
As bubbles of the "true vacuum" (with a nonzero Higgs vev) percolate and grow, baryogenesis can occur at or near the bubble walls.

Another issue that arises in the evolution of the cosmos is that of baryogenesis.
There are many different types of baryogenesis scenarios, ranging from GUT scale interactions to gravitational interactions which could possibly generate the matter asymmetry.
This is exciting from a phenomenological point of view, in that the energies at which such phase transitions may occur are within reach of the next generation of colliders, and could thus be probed experimentally.

Baryogenesis during the electroweak phase transition is a plausible scenario for the origin of matter in the Universe.
Furthermore, it has the advantage over other scenarios in that one can imagine the much of the physics involved may be experimentally probed before long.
In this talk I give an overview of the standard picture, and discuss briefly the advances over the past year that suggest electroweak baryogenesis is a robust phenomenon.

Antimatter, baryogenesis, and the anisotropies and polarization of the CMB radiation
We discuss the hypothesis that the cosmological baryon asymmetry and entropy were produced in the early Universe by phase transitions of scalar fields in the framework of spontaneous baryogenesis scenario.
It is assumed that the baryogenesis remnants in the form of baryon-antibaryon clouds survive to the present day as a new relic of the Universe.

 Citebase - Particle Physics Models, Topological Defects and Electroweak Baryogenesis
We demonstrate the viability of electroweak baryogenesis scenarios in which the necessary departure from equilibrium is realized by the evolution of a network of topological defects.
In each case we compare the strength of the model with that expected from scenarios in which baryogenesis proceeds with the propagation of critical bubbles.
We consider the effects of particle transport in the topological defect-mediated electroweak baryogenesis scenarios of Ref. 1.

 Microphysical mechanisms
An intuitive way to see this is to note that fl holes are fully described by their mass, their angular momentum and their entropy; quantum-gravitational interactions involving the exchange of virtual fl holes therefore have no knowledge of the interacting particles' other quantum numbers and can violate all of them.
Thus, it is possible that baryogenesis occurred at the GUT energy scale.
The Affleck-Dine scenario for baryogenesis notes that in supersymmetric theories, where each of the ordinary fermion fields from standard-model physics has a scalar partner, the early universe contained baryon- and lepton-number-carrying scalar fields.

For example, the electroweak transition broke the SU(2)×U(1) symmetry of the electroweak field into the U(1) symmetry of the present-day electromagnetic field.
This transition is important to understanding the asymmetry between the amount of matter and antimatter in the present-day universe (see electroweak baryogenesis.)
Continuous phase transitions are easier to study than first-order transitions due to the absence of latent heat, and they have been discovered to have many interesting properties.

 A Way to Reopen the Window for Electroweak Baryogenesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
These modifications are well motivated in the context of brane cosmology where they appear without being in conflict with major experimental constraints on four-dimensional gravity.
Such modification of cosmology at early times therefore reopens the parameter space allowing electroweak baryogenesis which had been reduced substantially given the new bound on the higgs mass imposed by LEP.
In contrast with previous attempts to turn around the sphaleron bound using alternative cosmologies, we are still considering that the electroweak phase transition takes place in a radiation dominated universe.

 The 42 faces of baryogenesis - Information Technology Services   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
In layman's terms, the real question here is why we have a universe which is full of matter and has very little anti-matter.
This little pet theory has virtue of both explaining the matter-antimatter imbalance and resolving the big question of what happened before the Big Bang, which becomes an event at the middle of time, instead of the beginning of time.
I admit that there are a great deal of models in the list of 42 that I haven't heard about before.

Lee, Christopher (2005-05-25) Probing physics in the standard model and beyond with electroweak baryogenesis and effective theories of the strong interactions.
First, we embark on an attempt to account for the abundance of matter in the present Universe if earlier in its history matter and antimatter were equally abundant.
We explore whether baryogenesis at the electroweak phase transition could successfully account for the observed density of baryons in the Universe, using the closed-time-path (CTP) formalism of quantum field theory to calculate the buildup and relaxation of particle densities during the phase transition.

 Constraints on Electroweak Baryogenesis from CP Violation
[A2.02] Constraints on Electroweak Baryogenesis from CP Violation
It is argued that: (a) If the standard model had all its CP violation originating from the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix, then the existence of a baryogenesis mechanism is prohibited by the fast and incoherent quark-gluon interactions.
(b) If the standard model had other sources of CP violation, then the constraints are generically relaxed and the requirement of a successful baryogenesis becomes a numerical question which is parameter dependent.

We are pleased to announce a workshop on Baryogenesis at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, from June 9 through June 27, 2003.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together a group of interested physicists to discuss outstanding theoretical questions as well as the phenomenological consequences of the different baryogenesis scenarios.
Initially, we will concentrate on technical aspects, including the foundations, issues of field theory at zero and finite temperature, and the derivation and solution of the Boltzmann equations necessary for the computation of the baryon asymmetry.

Turning Around the Sphaleron Bound: Electroweak Baryogenesis in an Alternative Post-inflationary Cosmology
The usual sphaleron bound and the statement of the impossibility of baryon production at a second order phase transition or analytic cross-over are reformulated in the first part of the paper as requirements of the expansion rate of the Universe at the electroweak scale.
In models with inflation driven by a second field and the usual mechanism of reheating (by decay of the inflaton) the required kinetic energy dominated cosmology is viable in both types of potential.
