With the physical Higgs mass the standard model symmetry restoration phase transition is a smooth cross-over. We study the thermodynamics of the cross-over using numerical lattice Monte Carlo simulations of an effective SU(2)×U(1) gauge+Higgs theory, significantly improving on previously published results. We measure the Higgs field expectation value, thermodynamic quantities like pressure, energy density, speed of sound and heat capacity, and screening masses associated with the Higgs and Z…

On the validity of perturbative studies of the electroweak phase transition in the Two Higgs Doublet model

A bstractMaking use of a dimensionally-reduced effective theory at high temperature, we perform a nonperturbative study of the electroweak phase transition in the Two Higgs Doublet model. We focus on

World-Line Formalism: Non-Perturbative Applications

This review addresses the impact on various physical observables which is produced by confinement of virtual quarks and gluons at the level of the one-loop QCD diagrams. These observables include the

Electroweak phase transition in theories beyond the Standard Model

Non-perturbative analysis provides the most accurate information about the properties of the electroweak phase transition in the Standard Model of particle physics. In this thesis, we initiate

Cosmological phase transitions: is effective field theory just a toy?

To obtain a first order phase transition requires large new physics corrections to the Standard Model (SM) Higgs potential. This implies that the scale of new physics is relatively low, raising the

Baryogenesis via gauge field production from a relaxing Higgs

We show that the baryon asymmetry of the universe can be explained in models where the Higgs couples to the Chern-Simons term of the hypercharge group and is away from the late-time minimum of its

Electroweak baryogenesis in aligned two Higgs doublet models

We evaluate the baryon number abundance based on the charge transport scenario of top quarks in the CP-violating two Higgs doublet model, in which Yukawa interactions are aligned to avoid dangerous

Baryogenesis from combined Higgs–scalar field inflation

We study a modification of the Higgs inflation scenario where we introduce an extra scalar φ, with mass m, coupled to the Ricci scalar as gφR, and mixed with the Higgs field h via the Lagrangian term

Lattice QCD for Cosmology

We present a full result for the equation of state (EoS) in 2+1+1 (up/down, strange and charm quarks are present) flavour lattice QCD. We extend this analysis and give the equation of state in

Towards an all-orders calculation of the electroweak bubble wall velocity

We analyze Higgs condensate bubble expansion during a first-order electroweak phase transition in the early Universe. The interaction of particles with the bubble wall can be accompanied by the

There is large potential for New Physics to be discovered in B 0 s − B 0 s mixing-induced CP violation. At the LHC it will be possible to extract the CP-violating weak mixing phase f s from the B s →
