Abstract

The cosmological baryon asymmetry is closely related to neutrino properties due to the non-perturbative sphaleron processes in the high-temperature symmetric phase of the standard model. We review some aspects of this connection with emphasis on cosmological bounds on neutrino masses, leptogenesis and possible implications for dark matter.
