Why is there rather something than nothing? Baryogenesis and leptogenesis

We start by presenting arguments that the observed asymmetry between the matter and the antimater in the Universe constitutes a challenge for the Standard Model of particle physics. After reviewing briefly the most popular scenarios aimed at explaining the baryon asymmetry (baryogenesis), we discuss in more detail a scenario in which the lepton asymmetry is generated first and the converted to baryon asymmetry (leptogenesis). In the latter scenario there is a possible link between the neutrino mass models and leptogenesis, and we discuss this relation.
