Title: Cosmological implications of electroweak symmetry breaking

Abstract: We discuss some cosmological implications of electroweak symmetry breaking and phase transitions. In the first part we focus on cosmological phenomena like baryogenesis and gravitational wave production and their link to particle physics. The second part deals with more recent developments namely the cosmology of electroweak symmetry breaking in models with a warped extra dimension.
