    • Abstract


      In this article, we give a bird’s eye view of the research on electroweak phase transition and some related phenomena, viz., cosmological baryogenesis, electroweak bubble dynamics and generation of gravitationalwaves. Our presentation revolves around the observation that a strong first-order electroweak phase transition cannot be obtained in the Standard Model for experimentally favoured Higgs mass and hence the cosmologicalevents associated with this kind of phase transition cannot be explained in this model. However, this phase transition can be achieved in a number of beyond Standard Models. As a prototype case, we consider the littlest Higgs model with T parity and show the results of some calculations within this model.
