Functional renormalization group (FRG) equations are constructed for a simple Yukawa-model with discrete chiral symmetry, including also the effect of a nonzero composite fermion background beyond the conventional scalar condensate. The evolution of the effective potential of the model, generically depending on two invariants, is explored with the help of power series expansions. Systematic investigation of the effect of a class of irrelevant operators on the lower (stability) bound allows a…

It is demonstrated that the inclusion of higher-dimensional operators induced by an underlying theory at a high scale (GUT or Planck scale) can relax the conventional lower bound on the Higgs mass derived from the criterion of absolute stability.
Asymptotically safe SU(5) GUT
We minimally extend the Standard Model field content by adding new vector-like fermions at the TeV scale to allow gauge coupling unification at a realistic scale. We embed the model into a $SU(5)$
Impact of generalized Yukawa interactions on the lower Higgs-mass bound
We investigate the impact of operators of higher canonical dimension on the lower Higgs-mass consistency bound by means of generalized Higgs–Yukawa interactions. Analogously to higher-order operators
Probing baryogenesis through the Higgs boson self-coupling
The link between a modified Higgs self-coupling and the strong first-order phase transition necessary for baryogenesis is well explored for polynomial extensions of the Higgs potential. We broaden
Nonpolynomial Higgs interactions and vacuum stability
The possible violation of the conventional lower Higgs mass stability bound by the discovered Higgs boson has far reaching consequences within particle physics and cosmology. We discuss the
Towards a UV-complete Standard Model: From baryogenesis to asymptotic safety
In this dissertation we investigate aspects of the UV completion of the Standard Model of particle physics. We focus on two examples that inevitably require new degrees of freedom: baryon asymmetry
Asymptotic freedom in $$\mathbb {Z}_2$$Z2-Yukawa-QCD models
Abstract$$\mathbb {Z}_2$$Z2-Yukawa-QCD models are a minimalistic model class with a Yukawa and a QCD-like gauge sector that exhibits a regime with asymptotic freedom in all its marginal couplings in
Shocks and quark-meson scatterings at large density
We discuss the phase structure of the two-flavour quark-meson model including quantum, thermal, density and critical fluctuations with the functional renormalisation group. This study combines two


Analysis of the Wilsonian effective potentials in dynamical chiral symmetry breaking
The nonperturbative renormalization group equation for the Wilsonian effective potential is given in a certain simple approximation scheme in order to study chiral symmetry breaking phenomena
Global flow of the Higgs potential in a Yukawa model
We study the renormalization flow of the Higgs potential as a function of both field amplitude and energy scale. This overcomes limitations of conventional techniques that rely, e.g., on an
Local potential approximation for the renormalization group flow of fermionic field theories
The second functional derivative of the effective potential of pure fermionic field theories is rewritten in a factorized form which facilitates the evaluation of the renormalisation flow rate of the
Renormalization Flow of Bound States
A renormalization group flow equation with a scale-dependent transformation of field variables gives a unified description of fundamental and composite degrees of freedom. In the context of the
Higgs Mass Bounds from Renormalization Flow for a simple Yukawa model
We study the functional renormalization group flow of a Higgs-Yukawa toy model mimicking the top-Higgs sector of the standard model. This approach allows for treating arbitrary bare couplings. For
Non-Gaussian fixed points in fermionic field theories without auxiliary Bose fields
The functional equation governing the renormalization flow of fermionic field theories is investigated in $$d$$d dimensions without introducing auxiliary Bose fields on the example of the Gross–Neveu
Higgs mass bounds from renormalization flow for a Higgs–top–bottom model
We study a chiral Yukawa model mimicking the Higgs–top–bottom sector of the standard model. We re-analyze the conventional arguments that relate a lower bound for the Higgs mass with vacuum stability
The Higgs mass and the scale of new physics
A bstractIn view of the measured Higgs mass of 125 GeV, the perturbative renormalization group evolution of the Standard Model suggests that our Higgs vacuum might not be stable. We connect the usual
The Exact renormalization group and approximate solutions
We investigate the structure of Polchinski’s formulation of the flow equations for the continuum Wilson effective action. Reinterpretations in terms of I.R. cutoff Green’s functions are given. A
