# Higgs boson and top quark masses as tests of electroweak vacuum stability

@article{Masina2012HiggsBA, title={Higgs boson and top quark masses as tests of electroweak vacuum stability}, author={Isabella Masina}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2012}, volume={87}, pages={053001} }

The measurements of the Higgs boson and top quark masses can be used to extrapolate the Standard Model Higgs potential at energies up to the Planck scale. Adopting a NNLO renormalization procedure, we: i) find that electroweak vacuum stability is at present allowed, discuss the associated theoretical and experimental errors and the prospects for its future tests; ii) determine the boundary conditions allowing for the existence of a shallow false minimum slightly below the Planck scale, which is…
