Abstract Electroweak corrections to longitudinal gauge and Higgs boson scattering amplitudes are calculated. Due to Sudakov double logarithms, the effect is a suppression of amplitude that grows rapidly with increasing center of mass energy leading to significant reduction of cross sections compared to tree level results. For example, the suppression factor for the cross section of W L + W L − scattering due to these corrections varies from 0.3 at the center of mass energy of 100 TeV to a…

One-loop leading logarithms in electroweak radiative corrections
Abstract. We discuss the evaluation of the collinear single-logarithmic contributions to virtual electroweak corrections at high energies. More precisely, we prove the factorization of the mass
Electroweak Sudakov corrections using effective field theory.
The formalism for including massive gauge bosons in soft-collinear effective theory is developed and results are given for the scalar, vector, and tensor form factors for fermion and scalar particles.
Radiative corrections to longitudinal and transverse gauge boson and Higgs production
Radiative corrections to gauge boson and Higgs production computed recently using soft-collinear effective theory require the one-loop high-scale matching coefficients in the standard model. We give
One-loop leading logarithms in electroweak radiative corrections
Abstract. We present results for the complete one-loop electroweak logarithmic corrections for general processes at high energies and fixed angles. Our results are applicable to arbitrary matrix
Soft and Collinear Functions for the Standard Model
Radiative corrections to high-energy scattering processes were given previously in terms of universal soft and collinear functions. This paper gives the collinear functions for all standard model

Two-loop electroweak angular-dependent logarithms at high energies
Abstract We present results on the two-loop leading and angular-dependent next-to-leading logarithmic virtual corrections to arbitrary non-mass-suppressed processes at energies above the electroweak
Renormalization-group-improved unitarity bounds on the Higgs-boson and top-quark masses.
A renormalization-group-improved perturbative unitarity bound for elastic scattering amplitudes is proposed. This prescription leads to upper bounds on the Higgs boson and top-quark masses as a
The Higgs mass and new physics scales in the minimal standard model
We study the theoretical correlation between the Higgs mass of the minimal standard model and the scale at which new physics is expected to occur. In addition to the classic constraints of unitarity,
Electroweak corrections to high energy processes using effective field theory
Electroweak Sudakov logarithms at high energy, of the form ({alpha}/sin{sup 2}{theta}{sub W}){sup n}log{sup m}s/M{sub Z,W}{sup 2}, are summed using effective theory methods. The corrections are
