From Cosmological phase transitions to gravitational waves
The first observation of gravitational waves (2017 Nobel prize for physics)
opened up a new window into particle physics as well as astronomy. In
particular gravitational waves can be produced
from first order cosmological phase transitions that occur early in the
Universe. Cosmological phase transitions play a key role in particle physics
leading to the Higgs mechanism where electroweak
symmetry is broken and the transition from the quark-gluon plasma to confined
hadrons such as protons and neutrons. They also appear in many extensions of
the standard model of particle physics
such as grand unified theories and first order cosmological phase transitions
are a vital ingredient in solutions to the matter anti-matter asymmetry.
Observation of stochastic gravitational wave
background from a cosmological phase transition would be a discovery of new
physics beyond the standard model of particle physics, because the standard
model predicts the electroweak and QCD phase
transitions to be smooth crossover transitions. In this colloquium I will
give a pedagogical description of first order cosmological phase transitions
and how they lead to gravitational wave predictions.
This is a very active and open area of research with many unknowns and
uncertainties, so I will highlight the limitations in our knowledge and
exciting opportunities for new work to have a large impact.
