Graham White, "Electroweak baryogenesis, experimental status, progress and extensions"

Electroweak baryogenesis is a minimal and compelling explanation for why we are here. It also has the advantage of being testable due to its connection to the weak scale. I outline these experimental tests and highlight theoretical uncertainties that blur the conversation between theory and experiment. I then present the status of some of the simplest baryogenesis models before show extensions to the paradigm itself.
