# Effective potential at three loops

@article{Martin2017EffectivePA, title={Effective potential at three loops}, author={Stephen P. Martin}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2017}, volume={96}, pages={096005} }

I present the effective potential at three-loop order for a general renormalizable theory, using the \MSbar renormalization scheme and Landau gauge fixing. As applications and illustrative points of reference, the results are specialized to the supersymmetric Wess-Zumino model and to the Standard Model. In each case, renormalization group scale invariance provides a consistency check. In the Wess-Zumino model, the required vanishing of the minimum vacuum energy yields an additional check. For…
