The development of an excess of baryons over antibaryons due to CP and baryon number violating reactions during the very early stages of the big bang is calculated in simple models using the Boltzmann equation. We show that it is necessary to solve the coupled Boltzmann equations in order to determine the final baryon number in any specific model.
