Abstract

We study strongly supercooled cosmological phase transitions. We perform numerical lattice simulations of two-bubble collisions and demonstrate that, depending on the scalar potential, in the collision the field can either bounce to a false vacuum or remain oscillating around the true vacuum. We study if these cases can be distinguished from their gravitational wave signals and discuss the possibility of black hole formation in the bubble collisions.
