The phase structure of the 3D SU (2)–Higgs model, the dimensionally reduced effective theory for the electroweak model at finite temperature, is analysed on the lattice using a variant of the linear δ–expansion. We develop a systematic variational cumulant expansion for general application to the study of gauge invariant operators in 3D gauge-Higgs models… CONTINUE READING
