Aspects of the electroweak phase transition and baryogenesis

Abstract:

In this thesis we study aspects of the cosmological electroweak phase transition which are relevant to the possibility of baryogenesis at this epoch. We focus on two issues: first, requiring that the observed baryon number be of electroweak origin places strong constraints on electroweak physics, and second, baryogenesis at the electroweak scale may be driven by an asymmetry generated at the GUT scale.

We use the effective potential at finite temperature as a means of analyzing pha...
