A review on axions and the strong CP problem
At zero temperature, these gauge field vacuum changes are strongly suppressed by a tunneling factor and baryon number violation is vanishingly small (ΓB+L viol. ∼ exp − 4π/αW , with αW = α/ sin2 θW ∼ 1/30).

This second condition requires that ΓB+L viol. (T ∗ ) < H (T ∗), which will obtain provided Esph (T ∗)/T ∗ is sufficiently big.
Summary Talk at the 3rd KEK Topical Conference on CP Violation
Second, he believes that for this dynamical problem it does not suffice to compute hφ(T ∗ )i/T ∗ via an effective potential, but one must really compute directly ΓB+L viol. (T ∗ ).
