  • noun Plural form of sphaleron.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • As I discussed in my post on this, the usual way people think about electroweak baryogenesis is that baryon number violating processes (occurring through nonperturbative field configurations known as sphalerons) take place during the electroweak phase transition.

  • However, if preheating takes place, then it is possible (although tricky, and highly model dependent in practice) for sphalerons to be generated through parametric resonance, and for their decays to generate a baryon asymmetry.
