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

Large logarithmic rescaling of the scalar condensate: a subtlety with substantial phenomenological implications
Lattice data, taken since 1998 near the critical line of a 4D Ising model, have been supporting the large logarithmic rescaling of the scalar condensate predicted in the alternative description ofExpand

The Higgs Boson: From the Lattice to LHC
We discuss the triviality and spontaneous symmetry breaking scenario where the Higgs boson without self-interaction coexists with spontaneous symmetry breaking. We argue that nonperturbativeExpand

Scaling laws and triviality bounds in the lattice φ4 theory: (I). One-component model in the symmetric phase
Abstract The lattice φ 4 theory in four space-time dimensions is most likely “trivial”, i.e. its continuum limit is a free field theory. However, for small but positive lattice spacing a at energiesExpand
