# Fate of False Vacuum in Non-perturbative Regimes

@inproceedings{Frasca2022FateOF, title={Fate of False Vacuum in Non-perturbative Regimes}, author={Marco Frasca and Anish Ghoshal and Nobuchika Okada}, year={2022} }

A formalism to describe the false-vacuum decay in non-perturbative regimes was proposed re-cently. Here, we extend it to the presence of Einstein gravity and calculate the corresponding eﬀective potential and decay rate for a λφ 4 scalar ﬁeld theory. A comparison with the usual perturbative decay rate shows that the higher the coupling λ , the greater the decay probability. From the running of the self-interaction coupling, we conclude that the theory becomes weakly coupled in the infrared…
