Baryon asymmetry from primordial black holes [CL]

We propose a new scenario of the baryogenesis from primordial black holes (PBH). Assuming presence of a microscopic baryon (or lepton) number violation and a CP violating operator such as $\partial_\alpha F(\mathcal{R_{….}} ) J^\alpha$ where $F(\mathcal{R_{….}})$ is a scalar function of the Riemann tensor, time evolution of an evaporating black hole generates baryonic (leptonic) chemical potential at the horizon; consequently PBH enumerates asymmetric Hawking radiation between baryons (leptons) and anti-baryons (leptons). Though the operator is higher dimensional and largely suppressed by a high mass scale $M_*$, we show that sufficient amount of asymmetry can be generated for wide range of parameters of the PBH mass $M_{\rm PBH}$, its abundance $\Omega_{\rm PBH}$, and the scale $M_*$.
