How were quarks or hydrogen made in the early universe?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

To try to find out I did a search of Baryogenesis.

The short answer ….. nobody knows.

With pressure, it seems that the “phase change” can happen at lower temperatures then what is presently “modeled”. the "phase change” can continue while the pressure is decreasing. (AFFLECK-DINE BARYOGENESIS might be on to something??)

I have put my quest for answers in my blog.

I have a question at the end of this post.

Preheating and Affleck-Dine leptogenesis after thermal inflation

Authors: Gary N. Felder, Hyunbyuk Kim, Wan-Il Park, Ewan D. Stewart

(Submitted on 26 Mar 2007)

In addition to demonstrating a crucial aspect of our model, it also opens the more general possibility of low energy Affleck-Dine baryogenesis.

Leptogenesis

Authors: Sacha Davidson, Enrico Nardi, Yosef Nir

(Submitted on 20 Feb 2008)

Leptogenesis is a class of scenarios where the baryon asymmetry of the Universe is produced from a lepton asymmetry generated in the decays of a heavy sterile neutrino. We explain the motivation for leptogenesis. We review the basic mechanism, and describe subclasses of models. We then focus on recent developments in the understanding of leptogenesis: finite temperature effects, spectator processes, and in particular the significance of flavor physics.

Effects of reheating on leptogenesis

Authors: F. Hahn-Woernle, M. Plumacher

(Submitted on 25 Jan 2008)

We study the evolution of a cosmological baryon asymmetry in leptogenesis when the right-handed neutrinos are produced in inflaton decays. By performing a detailed numerical study over a broad range of inflaton-neutrino couplings we show that the resulting asymmetry can be larger by two orders of magnitude or more than in thermal leptogenesis, if the reheating temperature T_{RH} is of the same order as the right-handed neutrino mass M_1.Hence, the lower limit on the baryogenesis temperature obtained in thermal leptogenesis can be relaxed accordingly.

As we shall see, the lower bound on the reheating temperature can be relaxed by as much as three

orders of magnitude in the most interesting parameter range of strong washout.

In particular, we investigated the interplay between inflation and leptogenesisby considering a decay chainwhere the inflaton first exclusively decays into heavy right-handed neutrinos which then decay into standard model lepton and Higgs doublets, thereby reheating the universe and creating the baryon asymmetry of the universe.

Question:

From what I understand, there is a scalar phase where everything is moving at the speed of light, which is followed by an expansion phase that makes the quarks.

Irregardless of the names given, (inflaton, neutrinos, etc.), the models assume that there are scalars that are still present and that these are responsible for the thermal bath.

This would be before the production of protons, the pp chain reaction, which happens only under constant pressure and temperature (ie. The stars).

The suggestion is that there is an interaction between two theoretical particles, (inflaton, right hand neutrinos) which produces the particles that we know.

Can the radiation, which produced the CMB, be produced at this early phase?
