In science:

The general structure of MN (T ) is rather complicated, but we are only interested in the regimes T . M (DM production) and T > TEW (baryogenesis).
Dark Matter, Baryogenesis and Neutrino Oscillations from Right Handed Neutrinos
Baryogenesis For successful baryogenesis it is necessary to produce a lepton asymmetry of µα ∼ 10−10 at T & T+ that survives until TEW and is partly converted into a baryon asymmetry by sphalerons, see condition i).
Dark Matter, Baryogenesis and Neutrino Oscillations from Right Handed Neutrinos
For Td , T− ≪ TEW it imposes a much stronger constraint on the mass splitting than during baryogenesis because the thermal rates ΓN are much smaller.
Dark Matter, Baryogenesis and Neutrino Oscillations from Right Handed Neutrinos
It is in fact sufficient for baryogensis if δM (T ) ∼ (ΓN )I J (T ) at some temperature T > T+ as long as some flavor asymmetries survive until TEW .
Dark Matter, Baryogenesis and Neutrino Oscillations from Right Handed Neutrinos
The violation of total fermion number by the Ma jorana mass term MM is negligible at TEW ≫ M , but asymmetries in the helicity states of the individual flavors can be created.
