Symmetry violation in the early universe - a book!

  1. Jul 4, 2013 #1
    Hi there,

    I've done some searching around on the forums and in the library, but I haven't found what I was looking for - some information of symmetry violation in the early universe. I know some small pieces of information but I'm currently trying to consolidate that so that I have an actual understanding (even if basic) of the theories behind C, P and T symmetry violation in the early universe. I've been so far unable to find any book that particualrly addresses the issue and so I was wondering if anyone here could shed some light or point me in the right direction?

    By "early universe", I simply mean at the times when these asymmetries were first theorised to occur.

    I'm currently a Physics undergraduate (between my first and second year), which I mention just so anyone reading this knows what kind of level I'm at - so if I'm way above my head here, then please let me know!

    Thanks for the help! :)

    welcome to the forum,

    I have a book that is free for distribution. Its not specifically designed for early universe particle physics. By the way you can get numerous articles by typing "Early Universe particle physics." that goes into some aspects of CP violations.

    the book I have is more on all forms of fields and does cover a bit on CP violations though its very lengthy and not for the faint of heart.


    I would also suggest try asking in either high energy particle physics forum or possibly the QM forum. I would think you would have more luck in the former.

    Hi, thanks for replying!

    Thanks for the link, I'll post this in the High Energy part of the forum :)
