Edward "Rocky" Kolb will write a chapter on baryogenesis.
Rocky Kolb is professor of physics and astronomy and Dean of the Physical Sciences at the University of Chicago, as well as a member of the Enrico Fermi Institute and the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Kolb received his PhD in physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1978; since then, he has held research positions at UT Austin and the California Institute of Technology, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and been director of the Particle Astrophysics Center at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Dr. Kolb’s work applies particle physics to problems in astrophysics and cosmology. He received the 2010 Dannie Heineman Prize for Astrophysics, and he has written on inflation, dark matter, dark energy, cosmological/astrophysical limits on particle properties, baryogenesis, phase transitions, and axions.
