Part of the NATO Science Series book series (ASIC, volume 562)

Abstract

Basic ingredients of the theory of baryogenesis are reviewed with emphasis on out-of-equilibrium decays of heavy particles. The present use of kinetic theory is explained and some attempts to go beyond the classical Boltzmann equations are discussed.
