High Energy Theory Lunchtime Seminar

Friday, March 8th 2019

Speaker: Jessica Turner (Fermilab)
Subject: Leptogenesis via a CP-violating Phase Transition

I will present a mechanism of leptogenesis
which is based on the vacuum CP-violating phase transition. This approach
differs from classical thermal leptogenesis as a specific seesaw model, and
its UV completion, need not be specified. The lepton asymmetry is generated
via the dynamically realised coupling of the Weinberg operator during the
phase transition. This
mechanism provides strong connections with low-energy neutrino experiments.
