- An Early Cosmological Epoch of QCD Confinement
- Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
- Speaker: Tim Tait , UC Irvine
- Abstract: I will discuss the possibility that Physics beyond the Standard Model induces an early phase of the Universe in which QCD is confined, with a larger confinement scale than is observed today. Such a phase offers a unique mechanism that can explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe, and offers opportunities to shed light on mysteries such as the abundance of QCD axions or WIMP dark matter.
