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.

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

Saddle point inflation in string-inspired theory

The observed value of the Higgs mass indicates the possibility that there is no supersymmetry below the Planck scale and that the Higgs can play the role of the inflaton. We examine the general

Thermal loop effects on large-scale curvature perturbation in the Higgs inflation

It is known that the Higgs potential in the Standard Model can drive a successful inflation as long as the Higgs field couples non-minimally to gravity. It is then inevitable to take into account the

Light inflaton completing Higgs inflation

We consider the extension of the Standard Model (SM) with a light inflaton where both unitarity problem in Higgs inflation and vacuum instability problem are resolved. The linear non-minimal coupling

Higgs Criticality in a Viable Motivated Model

An extension of the Standard Model with three right-handed neutrinos and a simple invisible axion model can account for all experimentally confirmed signals of new physics (neutrino oscillations,

Higgs Portal Inflation with Fermionic Dark Matter

We discuss the inflationary model presented in [1], involving a gauge singlet scalar field and fermionic dark matter added to the standard model. Either the Higgs or the singlet scalar could play the



Investigating the near-criticality of the Higgs boson

A bstractWe extract from data the parameters of the Higgs potential, the top Yukawa coupling and the electroweak gauge couplings with full 2-loop NNLO precision, and we extrapolate the SM parameters

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 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

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

Stabilization of the electroweak vacuum by a scalar threshold effect

A bstractWe show how a heavy scalar singlet with a large vacuum expectation value can evade the potential instability of the Standard Model electroweak vacuum. The quartic interaction between the

On Higgs inflation and naturalness

We reexamine recent claims that Einstein-frame scattering in the Higgs inflation model is unitary above the cut-off energy Λ ≃ Mp/ξ. We show explicitly how unitarity problems arise in both the

The universal Higgs fit

A bstractWe perform a state-of-the-art global fit to all Higgs data. We synthesise them into a ‘universal’ form, which allows to easily test any desired model. We apply the proposed methodology to

Higgs inflation: consistency and generalisations

We analyse the self-consistency of inflation in the Standard Model, where the Higgs field has a large non-minimal coupling to gravity. We determine the domain of energies in which this model
