# The hierarchy problem and the cosmological constant problem in the Standard Model

@article{Jegerlehner2015TheHP, title={The hierarchy problem and the cosmological constant problem in the Standard Model}, author={Fred Jegerlehner}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2015} }

We argue that the SM in the Higgs phase does not suffer form a “hierarchy problem” and that similarly the “cosmological constant problem” resolves itself if we understand the SM as a low energy effective theory emerging from a cut-off medium at the Planck scale. We discuss these issues under the condition of a stable Higgs vacuum, which allows to extend the SM up to the Planck length. The bare Higgs boson mass then changes sign below the Planck scale, such the the SM in the early universe is in… Expand

Models of the LHC diphoton excesses valid up to the Planck scale

- Physics
- 2016

We discuss a possibility to explain the LHC diphoton excesses at 750 GeV by the new scalar X that couples to the gauge bosons through the loop of new massive particles with standard model charges. We… Expand

Vanishing Higgs potential in minimal dark matter models

- Physics

Abstract We consider the Standard Model with a new particle which is charged under SU ( 2 ) L with the hypercharge being zero. Such a particle is known as one of the dark matter (DM) candidates. We… Expand

Mirror QCD and Cosmological Constant

- Physics

An analog of Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD) sector known as mirror QCD (mQCD) can affect the cosmological evolution due to a non-trivial contribution to the Cosmological Constant analogous to that… Expand

The hierarchy problem of the electroweak Standard Model revisited

- Physics
- 2013

A careful renormalization group analysis of the electroweak Standard Model, considered as a low energy effective theory, reveals that there is no hierarchy problem in the broken phase of the SM. In… Expand

Living beyond the edge: Higgs inflation and vacuum metastability

- Physics
- 2015

The measurements of the Higgs mass and top Yukawa coupling indicate that we live in a very special universe, at the edge of the absolute stability of the electroweak vacuum. If fully stable, the… Expand

Renormalization group equation, the naturalness problem, and the understanding of the Higgs mass term

- Physics
- 2013

The naturalness problem might be studied on the complex two dimensional plane with the technique of dimensional regularization(DREG). The Renormalization group equation(RGE) of the Higgs mass on the… Expand

Cosmological constant and vacuum energy: old and new ideas

- Physics
- 2013

The cosmological constant (CC) term in Einstein's equations, Λ, was first associated to the idea of vacuum energy density. Notwithstanding, it is well-known that there is a huge, in fact appalling,… Expand

Naturalness, chiral symmetry, and spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking

- Physics

A properly called “naturalness” is imposed on gauge theories. It is an order-of-magnitude restriction that must hold at all energy scales μ. To construct models with complete naturalness for… Expand
