Title: Title: Fermions out of equilibrium

Abstract: The out of equilibrium dynamics of quantum fields is ultimately
responsible for the creation of the matter-antimatter asymmetry, reheating
after inflation and the experimental signatures from heavy-ion collisions.
In most cases, the numerical evolution of some initial value problem is
involved at some stage of the computation. I will give a brief but
self-contained introduction to the topic and show a new method to treat the
out-of-equilibrium dynamics of fermions numerically. Being myself motivated
by baryogenesis, I will attempt to apply the method to the
out-of-equilibrium creation of the baryon asymmetry in the Standard Model.
