Related to baryogenesis: Baryons


The process of baryon and antibaryon formation in the early universe that produced an asymmetry between matter and antimatter and resulted in the now strongly matter-dominated universe.

After the Big Bang, there must have been an imbalance in the amount of matter and antimatter, which would have caused what's known as baryogenesis - the birth of matter.
Cosmology can also present ways of testing predictive neutrino mass models in leptogenesis [129] and even baryogenesis [130].
At some point an unknown reaction called baryogenesis violated the conservation of baryon number, leading to a very small excess of quarks and leptons over antiquarks and antileptons--of the order of one part in 30 million.

We want to emphasize that the conventional scenario of electroweak baryogenesis does not take into account gravitational effects.
Unsolved mysteries include the predicted existence of a space-time singularity in the very beginning of the Universe, the "graceful-exit" from primordial inflation, the baryogenesis problem, that is, the matter-antimatter asymmetry, and the cosmic coincidence problem.
