Title: Baryogenesis and Dark Matter from Freeze-In

Abstract: I propose a simple, unified, and testable framework for the generation of the baryon asymmetry and
dark matter. The baryon asymmetry and dark matter are created via freeze-in through the
the decays and inverse decays of QCD-triplet scalars, at least one of which must be in the TeV
mass range. I will show that the out-of-equilibrium baryogenesis condition and the dark matter
density constraint typically require the lightest scalar to be long-lived, giving good prospects for
detection or exclusion in current and upcoming colliders. I will also motivate other astrophysical,
cosmological, and collider signatures.
