Higgs dynamics during inflation

We investigate inflationary Higgs dynamics and constraints on the Standard Model parameters assuming the Higgs potential, computed to next-to-next leading order precision, is not significantly

Higgs boson mass and new physics

A bstractWe discuss the lower Higgs boson mass bounds which come from the absolute stability of the Standard Model (SM) vacuum and from the Higgs inflation, as well as the prediction of the Higgs

Vacuum stability of Standard Model++

The latest results of the ATLAS and CMS experiments point to a preferred narrow Higgs mass range (m_h \simeq 124 - 126 GeV) in which the effective potential of the Standard Model (SM) develops a

Planck scale boundary conditions and the Higgs mass

A bstractIf the LHC does only find a Higgs boson in the low mass region and no other new physics, then one should reconsider scenarios where the Standard Model with three right-handed neutrinos is

Gauge hierarchy from electroweak vacuum metastability

We consider the possibility that the gauge hierarchy is a byproduct of the metastability of the electroweak vacuum, i.e., that whatever mechanism is responsible for the latter also sets the running

The effective Higgs potential and vacuum decay in Starobinsky inflation

: Based on the current experimental data, the Standard Model predicts that the current vacuum state of the Universe is metastable, leading to a non-zero rate of vacuum decay through nucleation of

125 GeV Higgs boson and the type-II seesaw model

A bstractWe study the vacuum stability and unitarity conditions for a 125 GeV Standard Model (SM)-like Higgs boson mass in the type-II seesaw model. We find that, as long as the seesaw scale is

Searches for other vacua. Part II. A new Higgstory at the cosmological collider

The detection of an oscillating pattern in the bispectrum of density perturbations could suggest the existence of a high-energy second minimum in the Higgs potential. If the Higgs field resided in

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

TLDR
It is shown that the requirement that the vacuum survive the high temperatures of the early Universe places the strongest constraints from vacuum stability on the top-quark and Higgs-boson masses in the minimal standard model.

No) Eternal Inflation and Precision Higgs Physics

Even if nothing but a light Higgs is observed at the LHC, suggesting that the Standard Model is unmodified up to scales far above the weak scale, Higgs physics can yield surprises of fundamental

The Higgs mass and new physics scales in the minimal standard model

We study the theoretical correlation between the Higgs mass of the minimal standard model and the scale at which new physics is expected to occur. In addition to the classic constraints of unitarity,
