Higgs Boson in RG running Inflationary Cosmology

An intriguing hypothesis is that gravity may be non-perturbatively renormalizable via the notion of asymptotic safety. We show that the Higgs sector of the SM minimally coupled to asymptotically safe

Asymptotic safety, the Higgs boson mass, and beyond the standard model physics

There are many hints that gravity is asymptotically safe. The inclusion of gravitational corrections can result in the ultraviolet fundamental Standard Model and constrain the Higgs mass to take the

Asymptotically safe Higgs inflation

We construct a new inflation model in which the standard model Higgs boson couples minimally to gravity and acts as the inflaton. Our construction of Higgs inflation incorporates the standard model

The properties of the recently discovered Higgs boson together with the absence of new physics at collider experiments allows us to speculate about consistently extending the Standard Model of

Higgs mass and vacuum stability in the Standard Model at NNLO

A bstractWe present the first complete next-to-next-to-leading order analysis of the Standard Model Higgs potential. We computed the two-loop QCD and Yukawa corrections to the relation between the

Higgs inflation is still alive after the results from BICEP2.

It turns out that the nonminimal coupling ξ of the Higgs squared to the Ricci scalar can be smaller than 10.2, which is consistent with the recent observation by BICEP2.

Higgs scalar potential in asymptotically safe quantum gravity

The effect of gravitational fluctuations on the quantum effective potential for scalar fields is a key ingredient for predictions of the mass of the Higgs boson, understanding the gauge hierarchy

Higgs boson mass and new physics

A bstractWe discuss the lower Higgs boson mass bounds which come from the absolute stability of the Standard Model (SM) vacuum and from the Higgs inflation, as well as the prediction of the Higgs

Higgs mass predicted from the standard model with asymptotically safe gravity

The aim of this thesis is to predict the Higgs boson mass from the Standard model of particle physics with gravity as an asymptotically safe theory. To reach this goal, the running of four standard



Is there a new physics between electroweak and Planck scales

We argue that there may be no intermediate particle physics energy scale between the Planck mass $M_{Pl}\sim 10^{19}$ GeV and the electroweak scale $M_W \sim 100$ GeV. At the same time, the number of

The Role of Sterile Neutrinos in Cosmology and Astrophysics

We present a comprehensive overview of an extension of the Standard Model that contains three right-handed (sterile) neutrinos with masses below the electroweak scale [the Neutrino Minimal Standard

Cosmological implications of the Higgs mass measurement

We assume the validity of the standard model up to an arbitrary high-energy scale and discuss what information on the early stages of the Universe can be extracted from a measurement of the Higgs

Standard Model Higgs boson mass from inflation: Two loop analysis

We extend the analysis of [1] of the Standard Model Higgs inflation accounting for two-loop radiative corrections to the effective potential. As was expected, higher loop effects result in some
