Summary
This is an in-depth look at baryon number violation in the Standard Model including the necessary background in finite temperature field theory, plasma dynamics and how to calculate the out of equilibrium evolution of particle number densities throughout a phase transition. It is a self-contained pedagogical review of the theoretical background to electroweak baryogenesis as well as a summary of the other prevailing mechanisms for producing the asymmetry between matter and antimatter using the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model as a pedagogical tool whenever appropriate

Biographical or historical data
Graham White grew up in north Queensland, Australia. He developed a love of physics after reading some popular science books as a teenager and decided he wanted to become a physicist shortly after. Graham White is a Doctoral Student at Monash University studying Baryogenesis and holds a masters degree from University of Kentucky and has studied Baryogenesis at the Amherst Center for fundamental interactions (University of Massachusetts Amherst) as a guest scholar. He currently lives in Melbourne with his wife and son.
