HET Seminar

"Phase transitions in the early Universe"

Presented by Djuna Croon, TRIUMF

Thursday, January 30, 2020, 2:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In anticipation of the next generation of gravitational wave experiments, I will discuss the opportunities for phenomenological studies of particle physics in the Early Universe. The focus of the talk will be on first order phase transitions in confining gauge theories. Such phase transitions may play an important role in explanations of the strong CP-problem, as well as in models of baryogenesis. I will discuss several such examples and their phenomenology.
