Effective CP-violation in the Standard Model

Motivated by models of elecroweak baryogenesis, we compute the CP-violating part of the effective bosonic action of the Standard Model in leading order and NLO. We also compute the temperature dependence of the CP-violating operators. We conclude by determining at what temperatures the CP-violation of the Standard Model is sufficient to facilitate (cold) electroweak baryogenesis.
