@article{Maas2015SpectroscopicAO, title={Spectroscopic analysis of the phase diagram of Yang-Mills-Higgs theory}, author={Axel Maas and Tajdar Mufti}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2015}, volume={91}, pages={113011} }

Yang-Mills-Higgs theory, being the standard-model Higgs sector for a suitable choice of gauge and custodial group, offers a rich set of physics. In particular, in some region of its parameter space it has QCD-like behavior, while in some other region it is Higgs-like. There- fore, it is possible to study a plethora of phenomena within a single theory. Here, the physics of the standard-model version is studied using lattice gauge theory at a qualitative level. To this end, the low-lying spectrum…
