# Large rescaling of the Higgs condensate: theoretical motivations and lattice results

@article{Cea1999LargeRO, title={Large rescaling of the Higgs condensate: theoretical motivations and lattice results}, author={Paolo Cea and Maurizio Consoli and Leonardo Cosmai}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Lattice}, year={1999}, pages={658-660} }

Abstract In the Standard Model the Fermi constant is associated with the vacuum expectation value of the Higgs field, ‘the condensate’, usually believed to be a cutoff-independent quantity. General arguments related to the ‘triviality’ of /gf4 theory in 4 space-time dimensions suggest, however, a dramatic renormalization effect in the continuum limit that is clearly visible on the relatively large lattices available today. The result can be crucial for the Higgs phenomenology and in any context… Expand
