• Cold Baryogenesis from first principles in the two-Higgs doublet model with fermions 

      Mou, Zong-Gang; Saffin, Paul M.; Tranberg, Anders (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-06)
      We present a first-principles numerical computation of the baryon asymmetry in electroweak-scale baryogenesis. For the scenario of Cold Baryogenesis, we consider a one fermion-family reduced CP-violating two Higgs-doublet ...
    • Quantum tunnelling, real-time dynamics and Picard-Lefschetz thimbles 

      Mou, Zonggang; Saffin, Paul M.; Tranberg, Anders (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-11)
      We follow up the work, where in light of the Picard-Lefschetz thimble approach, we split up the real-time path integral into two parts: the initial density matrix part which can be represented via an ensemble of initial ...
    • Simulations of "tunnelling of the 3rd kind" 

      Mou, Zonggang; Saffin, Paul M.; Tognarelli, Paul; Tranberg, Anders (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-07)
      We consider the phenomenon of “tunnelling of the 3rd kind” [1], whereby a magnetic field may traverse a classically impenetrable barrier by pair creation of unimpeded quantum fermions. These propagate through the barrier ...
    • Simulations of Cold Electroweak Baryogenesis: finding the optimal quench time 

      Mou, Zonggang; Saffin, Paul M.; Tranberg, Anders (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-07)
      We revisit the numerical computation of the baryon asymmetry from Cold Electroweak Baryogenesis given the physical Higgs mass. We investigate the dependence of the asymmetry on the speed at which electroweak symmetry ...
    • Simulations of Cold Electroweak Baryogenesis: hypercharge U(1) and the creation of helical magnetic fields 

      Mou, Zonggang; Saffin, Paul M.; Tranberg, Anders (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-06)
      We perform numerical simulations of Cold Electroweak Baryogenesis, including for the first time in the Bosonic sector the full electroweak gauge group SU(2) × U(1) and CP-violation. We find that the maximum generated baryon ...
